Same Pain

It hurts. I thought it wouldn’t hurt.
Thought that with time everything
Shifts. This thing, it didn’t. I’m bleeding
Blood red all over the floors. I don’t feel

Human anymore. It hurts. What kind of
Just deserts is this? Clenched fists and
Broken teeth. What about the in-between
I’ve heard so fondly regarded. Its left its

Mark now all over my skin. Begin. Begin
Again? I’ve run circles through the starting
Line. Torn limb from limb my soul like a
Tattered flag. I lag behind. Are you surprised?

It hurts. Blurted out promises chasing me down.
Half smiles. Half frowns. I’m not proud of my
Legacy. Probability was never on my side.
Divine? I was never religious. Is this it?

Punishment? It hurts. I thought it wouldn’t hurt.
