Trauma

8/31/22


I've seen that expression

I've heard that pause

When the mind is frozen

Trapped in a horrifying memory

It's not a blank, mindless stare

It's as if your mind no longer allows

your eyes to see

You are somewhere else

It's not a place you want to be

It takes so much effort to escape

To return to the present

You'll recognize it instantly

When you've suffered the same

Pain such as that gives us the gift

of empathy

To feel what they feel

Even though

We can't see what they see
