A Poem from Years Ago

I’ve been sick for most of this past week, but I still feel like I need to post something. So I’ve decide to post another of the poems I wrote 28 years ago. This one also exemplifies an trait of BPD, fear of abandonment. My husband used to go on trips for work. I hated him going away for a few days. So here is the poem.I would sleep in his shirt, feeling like his arms were wrapped around me.


I have taken

the shirt

which you

last wore,

and that you

wanted to


on your trip.

Forgive me,

it smells like you

and keeps you near

while you are gone.
