marked [backdated nov 13th]

crescents in a line
unwavering / marked out at intervals
red-pink curves that
will not scar
but taste of sweet release
greater still if i did not
so often bite nails
down to tiny stubs
blunt and unwieldy
they are not inflicters of pain
marking out territory
inhabited by the torment
of the girl beneath
