A Biographical Nightmare

The torment of abuse
Never dies
A Biographical Nightmare
Playing
Inside rib cages
Along scars
Around breaks
And
Disfigured lines
Clotted blood
Congealed forever
Inside wounds
Hiding
Only pretending to heal
Burn marks
The bases
Where memories
Hit homeruns
Where bullies
Strike you out
And
Where the umpire
Has been
Bought and paid
