Afterblock - Draft


I wrote a story once, about a memory from my early childhood.
It was the first time I put myself out there, published,
and when she read it she asked me if I really thought
she was that “terrible”.
I never thought she was. 
I didn’t see the story in that light at all,
but her comment effectively
shut me down.
Even now, if she read this
she would make me feel guilty
for not writing what I felt
because of her.
