Scrutiny in sunlight

I love how you
Move me into
The sunlight

Examining me
Like a possession
As if you own me

Something to be
Checked for flaws
Signs of sadness

Bone-deep scars
Horrendous heartbreak
Searing memories

Or maybe
You are looking
For the seams

From when you
Tore me apart
And I sewed myself

Back together again
Almost but not quite
(Your ghost eats the thread)

And here I am
Again unravelling
Under your gaze

You undo me.
