This décima is for this week’s challenge from Ronovan Writes. The word is “stuff(ed),” which is appropriate considering that Thursday was Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving used to be absolutely terrifying to me because it felt synonymous with overeating. The last few years, thankfully, have been much easier. Even if I eat a lot of pie! It never completely goes away, but it’s been better overall.
Filled up with emotional stuff,
I often found I could not eat;
If for dinner I took my seat,
The aftermath was often tough.
Recovering inside is rough:
It’s deeper than the physical,
The thinking I’m not beautiful.
Emotions that had once been numb
Must be restored, and then welcomed.
A happy life is bountiful.
