my arms flap

I find it hard to breathe

all my muscles tighten

in desperation

in frustration

it feels like someone

is trying to take away me


my experiences are mine

you cannot take away me


if I feel pain

then it is my pain

yes, other people feel pain too

but my pain is my own

it doesn’t lessen in comparison

because I am me

and only me

unique in every way

18th January

my day

filled with serial killers

the true kind

not Dexterish


I think of power

the desire to control

and the urge to cause pain


I like to scratch mozzie bites

until they bleed

exquisite pain and itch together

but I wouldn’t scratch yours

not for all the tea in china
