Wisps and Wonderment

I was jerked awake in the middle of the night.
Something foreign to me.
For I embraced the selfish eternal far too dearly to surrender it so easily.
Forgetfulness is too valuable a prize to surrender.
Then there are the pains of itinerant injuries from earlier times returning to plague me.
But each one of these I’ve come to know intimately.
Their pains caress me lovingly, injecting reality into otherwise vacuous memories of the ago.
No, this then is something different.
This pain is buried deeper, hidden within the bowels of my mystery.
I recognize only one thing about it.
Self-loathing?
What had I done?
