Bondage

Tied down
by dirty cotton bandages
Forced back
into an unyielding wooden spineboard
I lie vulnerable,
exposed for all the world to see
Helpless
in this game we play,
bound to the idea
of you and me.

Inspired months ago, during my NSTP make-up session.

Ela is a twentysomething who is constantly getting stuck in self-destructive behavior and bouts of low self-esteem. She struggles with depression and writes to relieve herself of her feelings. Sometimes she even blogs about other things like makeup and positivity. One of her pieces was published in the Inquirer Young Blood in October 2017. She likes cats, dogs, and sometimes even people.
