When I was younger,
I became obsessed with the stretch marks on my legs.
Now that I’m older,
I’m more obsessed with the scarred lines on my arms.
I wonder, when I became obsessed with lines?
Was it when I was young and growing out of my baby fat
And into a more mature body,
And these lines on my thighs appeared?
Or was it when I saw sharp red lines on my friend’s wrists
And thought it would look better on me instead?
