invincibility is turning pain into pleasure

I like to wait too long
to go running
and then run too far

I love when my body aches
and my head throbs
and my blood churns to molasses

I love to listen closely to pain
and feel the way it resonates
with pleasure

I love to imagine that the pain
is fucking orgasmic
I love to hear my body screaming
but know that I’m getting stronger

I love the way emotional discomfort dims
in light of physical demand

I love that in the moment I am hurting
all of my problems are solved
