    We Dont Talk About It

    i dont even let myself know about it. some of us push it down underground and try not to look at it again. i can see the shape of it, the edges of it, but i never look into that center.

    I grew up in a small house with my mother

    so we shared a bedroom and bed. She'd watch **** and ********** even when I was there and awake sometimes she would wake me up because she isnt still. I'll never recover from such. I'm glad I'm child free

    Yesterday I spent the day with my boyfriend,

    mom, aunt, and my moms friend and her daughter. My boyfriend just touched my hand and I jumped. I felt so terrified. He knows I was raped multiple times in my life. I know the last time I was raped was almost 2 years ago, but I'm still traumatized.
