“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” ― Billy Joel
So as I mentioned in my first updated post, I had been reading my old LiveJournal and there were a couple of poetry posts in there, hence my spark to try writing again. Today’s cringe post is one of my old poems. This was during my sophomore year of high school.
I’ve mentioned in my description or “bio” or whatever you call it- that I have/had PMDD. I haven’t talked about it much on here, as I feel like sometimes it can be very hard for me to explain, but today I felt that I could give it a go.
Another poem- I was on a roll that day. Hopefully you enjoy. This is all terrifying to post!
If you don’t know what the Highly Sensitive Person (or HSP) is, I suggest looking here. It was the first website I found after hearing about this term. If you’d like a deeper look into complex PTSD (C-PTSD), here is a website you can check out. The examples they give on causation, keep in mind, are the more severe examples. Mine are much smaller scale. But these two disorders really do play together quite nicely. I’ve talked about both in my “Co-Morbidity” serious, here is my C-PTSD post, and here is my HSP post if you’re interested. This is the story of my learning of the truth behind them and my reaction the the “diagnosis”
It’s been a while since I’ve written any poetry. Not since maybe high school, I think. I feel like I’ve mentioned before, but I used to have notebooks that I’d write in, constantly. Poem after poem. I’ve since destroyed, and now regret doing so. But looking through my old LiveJournal (that post is about 2 entries away, so you’ll see it), I’ve had a little writing spark/inspiration… so I thought I’d share my latest work. Please be gentle, it’s my first time in over 10 years.
