[self] Oppression

[self] Oppression

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Experimental writing. Written during my negative phase a few weeks back.

"
I stroked my scars, self inflicted,
loving the patterns they have
left on my skin

for each of the scars hide
a memory [untold]
and promises [unkept]

I ate my fears, my throat
still parched, a little raw,
as beautiful lies regurgitate

the tip of my tongue burns
while in the back of my mind
artful phrases reverberate;

I held my gaze, the mirror
reflects my distorted features
and smeared matte lipstick,

the air thick with perfumed
sickness; I made myself
a victim to [self] oppression.

Oh. This tears my heart. I remember this feeling. I was too broken to be fixed. I remember i was desperate for someone to fix me. And I was ashamed of myself so I hid my true feelings.
Don't keep hiding this!

Thank you so much for appreciating and your words here, sette.
Beautifully done. Every good person I know self flegellates. It is a part of recognising our own flaws.
