I look like I fit my skin better these days,

Because I am filling it

With life-force.

There are no more apologies

In the lines around my eyes.

These are memories that I wish to hold forever,

Weight I carry well.

I feel loved in different ways.

Instead of love that merely touches the surface

Of my epidermis,

I feel it deep in my bones

And in the bones of my ancestors

As they heal beneath the surface.
