It was essential that I trust them! They do this every day, don´t worry, I told myself.
How intensely have you questioned your sanity? Today my brain perceived differently- I saw at angles I hadn’t seen before and heard at times I couldn’t explain. I didn’t like it. The violence, the hatred, the filthy perversion suddenly struck me freshly. As was everything else. It was too sharp. I couldn’t breathe. In fresh air I moved like one dead. I was dead. All my motor functions were mechanical. I don’t remember. I tried to gain back life from leaves. But I needed a tree- to really hug a tree.
It suffered times when It almost drowned
in the unruly sea, in wild tempests.
The sharp, icy jagged teeth of Cruelty
bit deeply into It.
The tearing claws of Anger slashed
powerfully at It.
It was being dragged through shrubs of
thorns that dug, stung
and scratched bitterly.
