a trigger is an unhealed wound,” i tell her.

“what aren’t you unhealed from?”she accuses, deadpan.

self-deprecation stories in resharable relatability:

vulnerability has been meme’d.

our shadow side is seen as an Evil to be repressed.

creativity is then blocked. art becomes pieces of unoriginality intertwined with undeserved superiority.

self-righteousness is a balancing act with self-pity.

who wins the battle in a lack of humility?

a face covering lays inside a package on their doorstep. “feels uncomfortable” is the thought.

their own mask — designed and rehearsed — awaits for the next performance.

a decision is made to be desensitized further.

but, this one is new.

another mask.
