I am sorry, I am truly sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you. It’s just that poem, it’s been stuck in my head for awhile now and almost every day it’s relevant to me. I’m scared too, but I think I’m brave, because, because I’m still here… I don’t know how long it can stay like this

Which poem is this? I am so sorry if there is anything that I have put out there that is in any way hurting you. That was not my intention. Many of my poems are rooted in experiences that are painful, even for me. I can share this with you. I can talk to you about how difficult it was, what helped and what didn’t. Don’t agonize over words. Poetry is an open wound, but all hurts heal. Some take longer. That is all. And there will be new poems about that too.
