Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers

I roll them up

when I'm ready to fight

I wipe my nose on them when it has run from crying

Sometimes I use them

even to wipe away the tears

I raise them when I'm hot

Bring them down to my finger tips

when I am cold

These sleeves are useful

covering my scares from

acne, sunburn and the bruises

from abuse 

These sleeves are mine,

my protection, my armour

and my barriers.

I love this.  Especially because of the specific details.  It does make me want to know more about what you've been through.  I hope you're still feeling as positive as you did at the concert.  Love, Susan  P.S., I hope you'll call me.  I'm not too good at this Internet stuff and don't know for sure if I know how to receive any messages on this Authors thing. It's a miracle I've apparently gotten this far.   Much better to phone.
