to terminate a storm by Bogdan Dragos

It became more and more
obvious
There was a storm inside her

growing ever stronger

and she sought
to terminate it
before it was too late

It's arguably more difficult to
terminate such storms
when you're fifteen
and still living with your parents

so she decided not to
share her struggle
with them
and reached inside her
for the eye of the storm
with a steel wire she'd kept in
a bottle of hand sanitizer for a day
and a night

Yes, the first raindrops painted the
white of the bathtub

they were crimson
and salty

like her tears

    A sad reality for so many.
    This is the age when it’s tough to express and also listen.
    Self-harm is not the solution but it somehow becomes the only option to ease the pain.
    Very emotional.

    1. ( •̩̩̩́ _ •̩̩̩̀) Sad reality for many, indeed. And it’s usually based on a bad communication and bad relationship between parents and child.
