TRAUMA

Six letter word

Has this pain

Re-living itself.

Over and over again

Like the feeling of happiness

Is forever forbidden.

And in this world, I’m just living

Just existing.


Torn between what was

And what no longer, isn’t

I torture myself

Into feeling numb

As I repaint the picture

Of this illusion I’ve been living


Because who’s to say

The memories that you replay

Compare to mine

And if they don’t, then I’d have to be a liar, right?


Or could it be that you're a coward,

Hiding behind

The choices you made.

So that you can save face

For the fact that I choose to

Relive all this pain

Over and over again

As if,

Trauma was my name.

- Sierra M. D.
