I completely understand. I also have to shy away sometimes from poetry that’s too heavy for that same reason. It brings me too close to what I can’t bear to look at.
There’s far too much pain that lives in that closet, some I’ve dealt with, but much that I haven’t. Those arms will keep trying to pull me back in unless I learn how to sever… My blade seems rather dull these days.
Thank-you for the hugs, the healing, the strength, and love, and I send them right back. ❤
