    here there is distance and room for fury rechannel to something productive and coherent on terms they they with their minds blinded by privilege might grasp faintly because a betrayal of trust that turned my safe space that I needed to escape into a site of fear for just a night self blame self blame not my fucking fault and they wonder why I’m so fucking angry but it is their constantly reinforced hierarchies and structures that mean the process of admitting no fuck that telling of shouting of pointing some fucking fingers and shaming some dicks that make me silent

    i’m cutting chords and shredding memories.
