“Telling Stories”

bear them proudly and do not weep
or seek to change
the scars of a life lived
in exquisite fervor

impassioned delight
wraps you with imprints of enchantment

magic woven into flesh
revealing stories
too amazing to be bottled within

instead leave the chronicles
their presence is a bargain

This week’s prompt from Poetic Asides inspired this piece, which turned out a lot different than I expected, but that’s usually the way of my writing.
