The exercise:

Your Two Haiku Tuesday prompt this week: battle scars.

The pain seems to be a bit less today, so that's good. My mobility is still pretty laughable though.

Mine:

Beneath the bandage
a scar is lurking. I hope
that it looks badass.

*     *     *

In my youth I left
my heart unprotected. Now
these scars keep me safe.

Random note: while checking to see if badass was one word or two, I came across this site, which I have decided is insanely awesome. So go check it out.

I've long gotten o'er
the pain, the hurt. We talk, but
the scars still linger.

The mem'ries return:
the studying, those... essays
Come back to haunt me.

The last one's in reference to the wonderful and triumphant return of AP season. One test last year (for which I wrote three of thee absolute worst things I've ever written. Bar none)... five this year. With all the studying I've been doing, though, I should be alright.

All the best on your recovery, 'Loo! ^^

The mobility will come back, unless, of course, you catch leprosy while you're recovering and your legs drop off. Then you might be a little hindered. But not to worry! If that happens, we'll get you a little go-kart to whizz around in....

Ahem. I completely agree with haiku number one, and number two is undoubtedly true, if a little melancholy. Good work!

And the badass site is something else, that's quite a find!

Battle scars

You took a scar home
From every battle you fought:
My tears wet them all.

This pink scar tissue
From wars long forgotten now
Reminds me of you.

g2 - haha, for some reason the italicized 'essays' just makes that second haiku awesome :)

Good luck with the school work and thanks for the well wishes!

Greg - thanks for the encouragement :P

I seem to be in less pain again today, so at least I'm heading in the right direction.

Hmm, it's a tough pick between your two this week. So I'm going to cop out and say I like them equally :)
