A Poem About The Lasting Effects Of Trauma

SURVIVOR’S GUILT

On dry land I emerge
Forever anchored to the sea
A captain of despair
Tidal waves rage on in me

It’s not the truth that hurts
But fear of the unknown
Wondering when the curtain falls
If I played my part alone

There’s no fleeing infernos
Without a touch of pain
No rising from the ashes
When you kindled the flame

It’s not the truth that hurts
But fear of the unknown
Wondering when the curtain falls
If I played my part alone
