me reading a poem about sexual violence, audio recording

I recorded the poem from this thread https://mastodonten.de/@AzureKingfisher/103495369611511454 and would be grateful to be heard. I'm not so happy with my accent and overly self conscious with my voice but here you are, this is me:

@AzureKingfisher Es ist so schön, deine Stimme dazu zu hören. Der Text ist soooo schön, und wichtig. Und die Gefühle damit kommen echt gut rüber. Und es tut gut zu hören, wie du es sprichst, wie gut es den schweren Inhalt transportiert. Ich hab's schon einmal gesagt, aber ich sag's wieder: Du solltest damit zu einem Poetry Slam. <3

@rhonda danke für deinen Zuspruch und dein ausführliches Feedback. Ich fühl mich gerad mutig damit, das so zu teilen. Noch mehr Mut würde ein poetry slam bedeuten, da ich da ja real vor Menschen stehe und auch dafür bewertet werde. So gross bin ich glaub ich noch nicht. Oder doch? Ich überrasche mich immer wieder auf's Neue.

@AzureKingfisher Es gibt auch welche ohne Wertung. Und selbst bei mit Wertung: Ich war schon auf genügend, dass ich mitbekommen hab, dass die "Wertung" keine Relevanz hat. Es kommt drauf an, wer die Karten dafür bekommt, es kommt drauf an, wie die Leute im Publikum drauf sind ... es kommt auf so viel mehr drauf an. An einem Abend top, am nächsten Abend flop. Ignoriere die Wertung, wenn es eine gibt. Vielleicht Open Mic Night. :)

@AzureKingfisher This is a stunning poem, so important and gorgeously read. I feel so grateful to have heard it in your voice today. You are strong indeed, and I think you speak for many many people who have not yet found their voice. 💙

@AzureKingfisher this is so powerful, and so beautifully read. You are so brave and courageous and I’m so proud of you, and I am so glad you are able to speak your truth and let your voice be heard. And you have a lovely voice! I’m so sorry I missed this earlier 💜💜

@AzureKingfisher

Hey dear, you are brave 💜!

For every time I listen to this piece I am able to see yet another layer of meaning. Thanks for reading this aloud for us, the pace you are giving it also enhances it's meaning.

It is dark, overwhelming and deeply saddening as your story, but then the triumphant voice emerges over and over again and will not keep quiet.

I can only second @rhonda that this is perfectly presentable, touching and you really should present it somewhere.

I am deeply grateful that you are sharing this.

Thank you for being here.

@ckeen @rhonda thank you. I almost cried while reading this. 💜

@Some_Person it feels good to be heard. It feels good to be able to say it out loud and not to be told that I would exaggerate. Not to be told I should just leave it. Shut up. Or maybe have some sex to get fixed because I'm so broken. I need to get it out of my system. This rape is just a little detail in a much bigger story. Fuck that shit.

@AzureKingfisher I believe in you.

@AzureKingfisher It’s currently unsupported, working on it at the moment.

@tootapp thanks for letting me know.

@AzureKingfisher

Your words distract me from beer in my own fridge.

This is Glasgow, and we allow falling.

And me, I'm not allowed falling.

In Glasgow, in Scotland.

There are rules, which go no running out of hugs.

And when I fall, and under me Trumpette falls, and under her Pinky Pie falls, and under her Jesus falls....

No shame in falling.

From here, do you think Buddy Christ gets up alone?
