sometimes people think
if you’re writing about trauma
you’re not ok

wrong way to think about it

if you’re denying trauma
and not processing it

and not being open about it

and pretending like everything

is sweetness and light

you’re not ok

I have an image of someone hovering

With a sweet expression on his face

Sweet like a piece of candy

That’s oversweet

He is the one who assumes

I’m not okay

And he’s the person from whom

I want to run away…
