Tattooed

People ask me
Why do I have a tattoo that doesn’t mean anything
They feel it to be an amateur mistake
But the truth is
After hurting someone
The pain that the needle projects
unto my skin
Piercing it
a cell at a time
I feel comfortable
Thinking
this pain can be inked on my skin
Never remembered
but felt within
down the layer of life itself
