needles & nails through the thumb
decapitated toes & needles that numb
bullets through limbs & unfriendly things
cracking back whips & pins through lips
sledgehammers used to put cracks in hips
large bruises & contusions caused by large sticks
falling down stairs & getting fractures
individually plucking the most sensitive hairs
what's sad is none of it even compares
to the pain
of being
without
you
