I decided to write this blog to share my thoughts and observations on codependency and how it has affected my relationships and mental health.
Thrashing my heart,
The depth of my soul
Into the wall.
Trigger warning: This poem contains trauma content. I’m learning to not be afraid anymore.
Splitting is a defense mechanism often used by people who suffer from BPD or other trauma to turn a situation into a complete black or white situation to cope with pain or suffering.
Your fingers squeeze my organs
Like a baby’s loving grasp,
Holding with gentle trust.
