    Once youthful and elastic, now
    Hardened by the effects
    The radiation of drunken nights
    Skin that you got under
    Hide tanned from cynical exposure
    Paper-thin
    And vulnerable to this diseased world
    The result of the cancer
    That was you
    Repulsing to the touch of another lover
    I'm not whole any longer
    Nor will I ever be
    Oh sure that gaping wound
    Is closed by now
    But it's not like you can't see the scar

      Interesting. Only one suggestion here for the second line. I would replace "hardened" with "wrinkled". Seems to work better, keeping more with the theme but just my opinion. Otherwise, a great expression of pain.

      Hey-
    I expected something sexy or lubricious, & what I got was a welcome surprise. An excellent poem about someone scarred & hurting. Great visual words to portray worn, spent & broken in. So refreshingly novel compared to whiny newbie stuff. Poems like yours that prick up my antennae & juice my brain are always welcome!
