Self Induced Trauma

Poetry

Black background. Three white arrows curved into a circle. In middle of circle is white text: “Self Induced Trauma”

Apologies mean nothing
When there is no remorse
Yet every time you repeat
That same line
I give in
Hoping this time
Will be different
Ignoring your track record
Keeps me going
Until the next lie

Hi! I’m A. Valverde-Galván or AVG. I write dark poetry as a means to heal. I hope my words can serve as a reminder, that we are not alone. That we all deserve to be heard and seen.
