Ouchie, ouchie, ouchie

One proud moment when reflexes cause the perfect deflection before wincing pain hits. A throb that feels deep purple, before eyes evaluate the damage. The reluctant hobble, attempting normalcy while clenching inside. Skin pulled tighter than duvet around body in the dead of Canadian winter. The unaccepting ache, a burning that doesn't cease when moving stops.
