You! Number the tidbits of trauma in me

You! Number the tidbits of trauma in me

Underlying me, trying me, frying my brain,

Driving insane,

Sending spirals miles down wells to hells

That I created, where I am hated.

What comes of me? Nothing to be

But a shell or a hull, a husk or a skull.

Empty inside—no self, not alive.

  1. I’ve just realized that poems about suffering wonderfully illuminate one of the “metaphorical truths”, that beauty can be found through pain. Thank you for showing me that through your writing.
