I try to tag my posts with trigger warnings in the format of a category titled “trigger warning” and hashtags stating “tw: [sensitive topic]”. Keeping that in mind, please feel free to review my archives or to cozy up and delve into a new post. If you relate to what you read and feel a little less shitty, that’s fantastic. And if you don’t relate to what you read but learn something instead, that’s also pretty great. 

Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies

I don’t understand
Why the palm of your hand
Can cause such incredible pain
Whether I want it or not
It’s like a gunshot
But others assume it’s inane
I’m lost and confused
And yet you seem amused
Tell me, why all the games and the lies?
Unless you come clean
And say what you’ve seen
The problems will gather like flies
