Scratches On Face

“You’re already seven!

I didn’t let you out,
when you got a sibling.

I wanted you by my side,
always silent and resting.

I shouldn’t have kept you closed,
for so long, within the house.

Now that you’re open to the world,
you’ve returned with scars.

How painful you must’ve felt,
to experience scratches on your face?

I apologize for your present state,
with all my heart, that’s oozing out pain.

I’ll provide you safe clothing hereafter;
but before that, a sanitized bath!”

She opens the cupboard and,
takes out her cleaning liquid.

She wipes carefully
over the scratches,
.
.
.
consoling the laptop’s monitor,
and blaming its keyboard!

The scratch is noticeable just over the position of the cursor.
