The trauma said: ” Don’t write these poems.
Nobody wants to hear you cry about the grief inside your bones.”
Andrea Gibson : The Madness Vase
“The conflict between the will to deny horrible events and the will to proclaim them aloud is the central dialectic of psychological trauma.”
“Over time as most people fail the survivor’s exacting test of trustworthiness, she tends to withdraw from relationships. The isolation of the survivor thus persists even after she is free.”
Judith Hermann : Trauma and Recovery
