bittersweet tattoo

your name still resides
upon the flesh of my heart
etched in ink
that has not faded like the rest
it has become a seasoned traveller
of ventricles and arteries
and an adept
mountain climber of synapses
for all of the things
that could wash it away
like sweat
and tears
do not affect it
this tattoo
is bittersweet but still welcome.
