applied to physical pain carved
into the flesh
The wound, slowly heals over time
under protection of this bandage
adhering to the skin
When the body
no longer inflicted,
the Band-Aids purpose served,
its attachment no longer useful,
gets in the way of natural motion
and must be removed
When grasped to be peeled away, discarded,
a bit of hesitation as it has brought on this healing,
has become a comfortable fixture
Could such a thing,
could such an attachment be discarded?
It must, as there is no more need or want
One swift pull
One last sharp sting,
it is removed.
Suffering is done.
