Bruise(r)


A slam of door
Bang!
and one bruise was formed

it is round, not totaly
purple with some color of blood
just on center
a contusion, say the experts

I can't say nothing
They always know more than me

But i suffer and i see
the hemorrhagic tissue
and it is bigger and bigger
as much the time pass

Ironic

time pass by for heal
so time is friend of my bruise
enemy of my reaction

i squeeze the soft purple flesh

more dead than alive

and is like it said to me
I am giving the pain,
I am more alive than you

Interesting

I cant do nothing

the time, the bruise, the blood

and....
They always know more than me

    Dear Altair, in english you have bruise and bruiseR that means one who knocks or hurts (is the theme of the poem) . So, i think is about the door thumping on the poet, that triggered all.
    When i said they always know more than me is like say: they always win, with their violence. (Report) Reply

    Dear Thomas, its about violence but is not phisical only. Perhaps an association between the body and the mind. Thanks Poet and kisses. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
