Child, it is what happens when you touch a hot kettle or prick your finger.
It makes you draw away.
For it is your body telling you that it is hurt and you must stop what you are doing.
Or go someplace else.
But spare attention for other matters.
And, with time, it will go away.
Tend to it.
And it should heal.
Some scars will not be easily forgotten.
You can never truly share it.
Yet do not hide from it.
You may choose to embrace it.
But value it for what it is.
For it is the trough between the waves of things we find pleasurable.
Without it we would be lost in a sea so still.
