How Connection Heals Trauma (and why it terrifies us too)

poetry May 17, 2020
 

The Double Edge

Each time I seek to connect
there is a double edge.

Will it be different this time?
Will I be known?
Will I be seen?
Will I be heard?

And can I survive if not?
Can I survive the opposite?
Can I survive reaching for you 
and not finding you?
Can my heart hold all of this,
the terror and the hope?

It will all tumble one day.

This I know.

And yet I reach,
and sometimes,
maybe.

Yes.

There you are.

I have been
waiting

to find you
for so long.
