Wounded Body

Aches and pains
Ravage my body
Fluids weep through bandages
Gashes upon flesh
Rented from limbs
Bashed upon concrete
Now the body repairs
Fends off cold
A shivering mess
Scabs crack and ache
When joints flex
Adhesive pulled on living tissue
Making movements tight
Ache
Pain
In time the body will forget
But for now
Must go slow
