The Scar That Won't Close

  Why? Why must you be created? Why did you have to become a scar? A scar that is forever burned in my memory, forever leaving its mark, forever taking its toll, creating yet another scar, but sadly, a scar thay won't ever close, a scar whose cut is too wide to close, a scar that will become infected due to a lack of treatment and closure, a scar that stitches won't even close, no matter how much thread is used, a scar that won't let me sleep, a scar that can be seen on the inside as well as on the outside, why must you become the scar that won't close?
