a letter to my therapist | Karan Chambers @writer.interrupted

Updated: Feb 24

Is it ok to begin with the obvious?

You were right

when you said I turn everything inwards;

riptides under the surface

that threaten to drag me


They whisper to me:

It's all your fault

You should be better, kinder, more patient

You're no good at this

You'll never be any good

Sharp shingled edges digging into my skin


I've been eating these stones for years -

crunching the rocks between my teeth,

swallowing the gravel down.

It lies in my belly now:

fossilised sediment


weighing me down

when all I want is to

soar -
