The Wrestler

entry picture

You believe in love don't you?
You know love,
the one with the
plastered knuckles 
and fractured nose
and lifetime
prescription for
painkillers?
That old war horse
drowning his sorrows
over there,
who can still turn it on
now and then,
in that arena where
every move is scripted
but the blood is still real.

The spirit is willing but the flesh.... A great study in character that leaves us wanting more of him (imo).
