a short perspective on in-growth

i exist
inside the veins  
i crawl
under the skin
i grow
quick and wide
and leave dark marks
ugly and painful marks of joy
which will refuse to fade away
even with incisions to pull me out
i leave marks on the body,
branding you for life as mine.
i am your birthmark still.
