Haiku: Emotional Chaos

Sometimes I don’t have many words for the chaos in my head as I deal with the long-term effects of childhood sexual abuse. Chaos. That is really the only word I can think of to describe it. The simplicity of Haiku helps me slow down the emotional onslaught.

Here are a few I’ve jotted down when things have bubbled over:


So many traumas;

Where do I even begin?

And how do I heal?




I know it happened




I should be angry,

at the level of betrayal.

Instead, I feel pain.








Sometimes it is intense,

     Other times I feel nothing at all.

Searching for balance.




I’m uncomfortable;

Sitting with my emotions.

I’m trying to learn.
