Bruised

20141207-231605.jpg

Have you ever been bruised?

Of course you have.

It’s a cushion. An automatic reaction. Trying to protect us. Ultimately from one thing. The hurt.

It’s very tender, but we like to press it. Every so often. Just to make sure it’s still there.

Have you ever bruised another?

Of course you have.

Carelessly. Mentally. Leaving objects in another’s path. A thoughtless word. A look, a feeling.

Do you bruise easily?
