vaginismus

isn’t it a wonder that the body can know the spirit so well?

i had thought myself broken

wondered at the failure of my heart

and my mind

why the body remained unconvinced

rejecting invasion.

protecting what the heart & mind could not.

incredibly, she was doing the work of my soul

innately knowing that the protusion

was wrong,

violent,

an enemy.
