Knuckle Hug


By Justin M. Clark


The first time you hit me, it started a trend

I realized I liked pain

Something I did not comprehend


I felt your fists, never a hug

Perhaps that’s where it stems from

This twisted form of love


Superficial scars seem trivial, arbitrary lines on a chart

Tattoos now cover them

Erasing moments you tried to tear me apart


I’m older now, much stronger than you

Compassionate, forgiving

Able to stay myself from splitting you in two


But the future is unwritten, anything could transpire

Someday I may feel loving

That day will be dire
