Beautiful. I have felt a strong connection with her as well. It is clear you understand these feelings — that are so familiar to me
“haze of swaying moods sends me down.”
“We would’ve known, I think, not to speak
about blue darkness and moon shafts shifting”
Such a beautiful piece. I look forward to reading more of your poetry.

I’d like to have your permission to share some of your thoughts/writing on this subject when I present at conferences. Having real-world examples I can point to helps immeasurably in people’s understanding of the abuse->arousal effect.
I’ll give you credit or make it anonymous, whichever you prefer.
Thank you again for your willingness to share feelings so deep and personal.
