I wish i had pulled myself instead

i’ve never pulled a muscle.
at least not one of my own.
wait…
never mind, i do pull my own
muscle every few days.
but in this instance,
there is no pleasure to be had.
during a soccer match
i sprinted towards a ball
that headed to goal.
my left quadriceps suddenly
seized up, burning with a knot.
so what if i’ll be limping
for sometime to come,
at least i didn’t tear it.
either way,
i still have to work.
