Broken

Updated on October 26, 2015
Source

So many hurtful tears

The world they could cover

The rest I claim as my years


I tried to be

What you wanted

I allowed no one to see

Just how I was haunted


Put on that smile

Tell all is fine

All the while

Horribly, terribly trembling inside


Behave the "right" way

Be good, no deep discussions

Not a bad word would I say

Or suffer the repercussions


All that is over and done

Or is it?

Nightmares, flashbacks, depression

I'm broken

And cannot get the pieces to fit


Can I be whole again?

Or will I be like Humpty Dumpty, cracked?

I'm no longer your eminent domain

Move forward, march on, in fact

I resend your reign

How many women will be absused in their llifetime?

See results

      A thought provoking write... Intense.. and connects immediately..

      Woman subordination is a bad phenomenon... It has ceased to an extent but still exists in general in many parts of the world..

      Great lines

      Sounds like we were married to the same person :(

      1 1/2 yrs into trying to get a divorce and move on, but it seems he's going to be able to drag it out another year. I so want to close this chapter.

      Thank you so much for your sweet and thoughtful comments ?

      Morning, Deb,

      You're very welcome! It took a while for me to realize what an amzing person I really am and just because I don't think the same as him that I'm not sick or stupid etc.

      You're writing is amazingly beautiful and is such an outlet for you!

      Hugs :) BJC

      Thank you so much Fullerman. Yes, it has to stop. But sometimes the absused feel trapped and embarrassed. They also think that if they can try very hard they can fix it....which they can't. Thank you for reading and your empathy.

      This was a beautiful way to display a tragic time. Great work. This kind of thing needs to stop. I feel sorry for those who are abused.
