Still Hurting

A sprained wrist, braced, supported, over-exerted
A twisted ankle, wrapped and splinted, torn with a slip and a rick
A calf inflamed, iced to cool it, rested, warmed to relax it, don’t jump that wall again
But despite the relief at that final parting
Despite the ease of freedom, still hurting
Squeezed and ripped, a broken heart, no bandage for that

  3. Tore a muscle in my calf one day and had to sit it out — a month off my feet. So time is the only bandage for injuries, especially that last one.
