he told me he played tic-tac-toe on his arm
with a razorblade once
and showed me the scars to prove it

i grazed my fingers over his forearm
marked with faint white lines
that made me scared i would lose him someday

and i thought back to that one time
when he was drunk and i could hear
the urgency in his voice as he stood on a ledge

but all i could feel was his heart beating faster then
when i touched the stories permanently inscribed 
in his skin

and his left hand tracing the outline of my jaw
and even the tickle of his eyelashes against my cheek
as we sat in the backseat of his nissan.
have any of you ever been afraid for someone you loved?
i know, i hate cliché poetry about self-harm as much as the next person, but.. i don't know. this moment has just been playing in my mind nonstop since it happened.

i don't know why, but i couldn't help but love him more when i kissed his scars.

ahh Little story for ya :) A few days ago I was in suffolk visiting my uncle. The internet connection is bad there, so I was using my mum's iPad to try and check my mail on DA (which I never managed since it took an hour just to load DA) As I was logging in I saw a deviation that caught my eye. Since the page went blank I only got a few seconds to see what was wrote and I only saw the first few lines, but I remember being struck by what I saw and the title. It reminded me of something, though I can't quite remember what...
But anyway I memorized what I could. Which was the name, the first line and the section it was in. So I remembered: butterfly kisses, he told me he played tic-tac-toe on his arm and free verse.

Honest to god, true story.

:) Saw this when I was logging in and it really struck me. I remembered all this time and here I am reading it properly. Your words are sad, but special and pretty. If that makes any sense. I'm glad I saw this. :)
