Knife Wounds

A deep scar runs across her chest
What once ached daily
raw, tender, bloody
has now healed with new skin
It shimmers
She runs her finger across the length of it
in gratitude
for second chances at living
for feeling strong  
for feeling beautiful
for feeling free
the man with the knife laughs...
     I never cut you
     It's all your imagination
     It's your make-believe reality
     After all, 
     YOU are the crazy one
     and the whole world knows 
     Go back to your therapist Crazy Woman!

And she bleeds again
