Every Night At Half Past Three

Every night at half past three
A funny thing occurs,
My scars all bubble to the top,
Some deep and sad,
Some slight, some made myself,
Some raw and never healing,
If I were to reach and switch on the light,
They’d run away and sink once more,
But in the dark, I can feel their roughness,
Their bumps, the caverns,
Each one earned, each one sliced through
Gritted teeth.
Every morning as the sun comes up,
A funny thing occurs,
My scars no longer show,
And I smile through gritted teeth.
