Hidden Diamonds

Sitting here typing this, I can feel my joints crying out at me in protest for doing something as normal as sitting. Spasms are running down my legs and my buttocks, my lower back.

I remember to count. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8. It doesn’t seem to help. My feet are throbbing and even now I can feel the knots in my back moving underneath the skin.

It feel as if I have glass under the surface of my skin that bites and pinches when I move. When I was younger I thought that broken glass looked like diamonds; except these diamonds could make you bleed.

Sitting here, I can feel my calf muscles tightening and knotting together; I have weights on the back of my legs, weights that try to pull me down into the earth, a mass of skin on the ground.

Another hot jab pokes at me from my back, as if it wants to come through the front. I drink my coffee and wonder if it’s too early in the morning to take an asprin.

    This is really very moving stuff Jamieson. I’ve always admired your go get ’em attitude, and now I just admire it more. 🙂

    You really do rock my socks. 😉
