Trauma Life Cycle — A Poem

Trauma Life Cycle — A Poem

Trauma has percolated right down to my soul.
It’s the part of me that makes me cold.

Trust issues and cynicism enchain my mind.
This jaded girl pushes away everyone in her life.

The pills I take only numb my pain.
The damage you did will never go away.

Trauma will stay no matter what I do.
All the therapy in the world cannot make it vanish.

I’ll live with the pain, so what if I can’t exorcise it?
Sometimes, dead doesn’t mean gone – but I’ll manage.
