Fractured - A Complex PTSD Poem by SoAngieWrites.com #trauma #recovery #poetry #PTSD

A broken teacup
A shattered sense of safety
A fractured sense of self

I glue the first together
It doesn’t hold water
Succulents don’t need much

I drag the second along
To traverse a mis-filtered world
Hoping discomfort desensitizes me

I wear the final like a film
And line my eyes in black
The disconnect lies in the mirror
