Processing Trauma from February 2018: Physical Assault

{Trigger Warning}

Attach part says, “Hold me.”

Submit part says, “Break me.”

Freeze part says, “I need to be invisible; I need to disappear.”

Flight part says, “Let me go so I can R U N.”

Fight part says, “I will f*cking rip you to shreds.”

Attach part says, “I will piece you back together again.”

Attach part says, “But I love you.”

Submit part says, “But I did what you said.”

Freeze part says, “But I didn’t move (so how could/did I provoke you?).”

Flight part says, “But I promise(d) to get out of your way.”

Attach part says, “I still feel my head on your warm, soft, hairless chest.”

Submit part says, “I still feel you on top of me, crushing me so I cannot breathe, your fingers dominantly digging into the sides of my thighs so I can’t get away—so you win by default.”

Freeze part says, “I still feel you breathing down my neck while I can’t move.”

Flight part says, “I still feel the terror of you hunting me in our own home.”

Fight part says, “I still feel myself tackling you to the ground (after your drunken slurring shouts inches from my sleepy face triggered me into action).”
