"If there was one thing I could save from the fire,
he said, the broken arms of the sycamore,
the eucalyptus still trying to climb out of the yard -
your breath on my neck like a music that holds
my hands down, kisses as they burn their way
along my spine -or rain, our bodies wet,
clothes clinging arm to elbow, clothes clinging
nipple to groin - I'll be right here. I'm waiting." -- Richard Siken, Saying Your Names

this is from a documentary of a clinical case study called “child of rage,” just a heads up. you can watch it here. (warning: the content discussed is pretty disturbing at times, and it can be potentially triggering.)
This will look shit on my blog but Idc. That was one of the saddest things I’ve ever watched and the people that helped her are genuinely amazing people.
This was also featured in the documentary “My Name Is Faith”, with a grown up Beth talking about it. This is also a really good film about older children that are adopted and their displacement/rage and how to deal with it. Highly recommended.
