Secret Story – a poem about self-harm

Beautifully penned…a poem about Self-Injury…sometimes it’s easier to read about “real” life situations in a lyrical flow.

Pooky's Poems

Each scar told a story,
A story untold,
A story that took
Quite a time to unfold.
And a story that took
Pulsing pain to relieve.
A story, if told,
That would not be believed.
The tale of a young girl
Well known for her lies,
And a respectable man
And his button down flies.
A story the young girl
Could not understand
Though she tried to make sense
With the blade in her hand.
A story secreted,
With blood and with pain
A story repeated
And again.

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
