When I poured my soul out to you,
And explained the darkest and dirtiest parts of my life,
Your eyes dimmed for a second and your face dropped,
and I felt the discomfort and judgement creep into every response you gave.
And it was in that moment I realized,
There are two types of people in life: those who have lived through traumas and those who have not.
So when you asked me “why would didn’t you just ___?”,
I know no amount of explaining can allow you to understand me,
because damaged people understand damaged people in a way no one else ever will.
- m.a.

No. I was not afraid of him; but of myself. I seemed reborn in his unreflective eyes, reborn in unfamiliar shapes. I hardly recognized myself from his descriptions of me.
