As we made love, our scars met,
grazing long enough for mine to say
‘He tries to hide me,’
and for yours to reply
‘I know I embarrass her.’

'He never learned how to swim,' whispered my scar.
‘She got picked last in gym class,
then cried into her pillow,’ replied yours.

Just then, a huge wound opened in me.
You touched it. It closed.
I was filled, fully healed, and I knew
I would never be able not to love you.

"Women not employed by the beauty industrial complex will tell you that your thirties are better than your twenties, due to increased confidence and comfort in one’s own skin. It’s counter-intuitive, perhaps, for a culture as youth obsessed as ours, where magazines whisper that happiness is proportional to the gap between one’s thighs, but I suspect that part of contentment lies instead in the spaces one takes up without reservation or apology."

Photographer Flora Borsi ( tumblr / facebook / behance ) - “In this series called ”IRÉEL” I mixed photographic elements with painting techniques. A hyperrealist painter aims to achieve a result which looks like a real photographic picture. A pictorialist photographer’s desired result is visually equivalent to a painting. The photographs are real, I’ve just applied some color/toning effects, adjusted the contrast and a few skin retouch.”
