CN: Emotional and physical abuse
Emotional abuse isn’t real abuse
Not like being hit, it’s not as if
You need your mind for much.
What do minds do?
Who needs a sense of self?
Overrated, feeling you deserve to live
and mean more to friends
than your volume in air
or potted plants
Don’t tell me battered minds matter
less than bruises which I won’t tell you
Fade. You should know that
Isn’t the point
