The Blues

I Spoke to the group
Violence is never OK


She sat silent and still
Tears rolled down
Fast
Hard
Eyes Red
Sunken in


Kleenex in hand she wiped
Wept
Walked out of the room
Excruciating
Pain
Crushing
Head Hanging


At break she spoke
One on One
To me
Softly.......
I Killed Him
I had to
Knife to my throat


Truth is.......
I still love him


We held
Cried
Connected Soul Deep


You will live again
Hope
Love
Life


Forgive but........
Never Forget..... you can't


Misty eyed, I walked Out
Only to return next week
To Teach,Train More on....
The Cycle......
That breaks spirits
Hearts


I will never be the same
I am humbled



Humbled

  1. That's powerful stuff, Laura. I haven't dealt with my Blues post yet as it's a bit close to home, but I really enjoyed your piece. *smile*

  4. Dear sister-This story is so powerful and painful to hear about. I am so glad you run these groups to help women heal their wounds from abuse and/or from being an abuser. Your lectures are very needed in this crazy world and your down to earth personality makes it easy for the women to share their stories. You make me so proud! Love Linda
