You & Me

Thank you to the survivor who submitted this poem, and the five other poems published over the past few days. We really appreciate you sharing your words with us and other survivors.

A year

since you started to help my broken




Comfort film with

pancake making

Sleeping with you – my naked person

Valentine’s day chocolates and prosecco in


When the stitches


I held onto


Violent crying I can’t                                                                                   (stop)

Raw emotions that open

up the wound

Phantom pains

Force memories back

But you are here

Holding onto me too

fish and chips and

good sex

Your voice comforting me on the train



I was broken

I was no longer me

Now I am me

Me with you
