HSP and C-PTSD

Damn.

I feel read

Opened up also

Weirdly ashamed, like some sort of

Fucked up reflex I have

Whenever I recognize some truth

In myself.

Here I’ve been downplaying my emotions

This whole time

Because other people tell me they’re useless

But my emotions

And all that comes with them

Are simply a defense mechanism in place

That keeps me afloat when life tries to

Drown me.

I often feel as if my sensitivity

Is killing me but just like

The second and third weeks of top surgery

I think the pain will subside

If I’m able to stabilize

And heal, properly.

After years and years of

Trying to give myself a thicker skin

While trying to lose weight—

It might be time to recognize the irony.
