Waxing Thoughts

Author: YMC '21-'22
As seen in: The Mental Health Issue #

“I understand your pain. I’ve gone through the same thing.”
– the woman waxing my vagina raw right now

“I understand your pain. I’ve gone through the same thing.”
– someone about to interrupt my mental health rant to give me their mental health rant

“Hey shut up”
– me, to the person about to interrupt my mental health rant

“Hey shut up”
– my mental health rant, to me, about to open my mouth to say “Hey shut up”

“Hey shut up”
– me, to the woman waxing my vagina clean right now, in my wildest dreams

My wildest dreams
– “Hey, it’s Mental Health Rant. I have gained consciousness, and I will now self-destruct.”

My wildest dreams
– “I understand your pain. I went through the same thing.” – my past self, to my self from the even further past, without the involvement of my current self

My mental health rant”
– my vagina, feeling really silenced right now with many feelings to voice

“My mental health rant
– the hair ripped from my vagina, gone forever

“I understand your pain. I’ve gone through the same thing.”
– my childhood joy, to the hair ripped from my vagina, gone forever

Hot strips of wax filled with pubic hair, to my childhood joy: “So we meet again.”
