Things I want you to know. A love letter from a battered woman.

I want you to know...

I want you to know I don’t want to be like this, Fleeting comments turning into tirades, It’s over now. These feelings so familiar, A startled jump plunges me faster and deeper, I’m back to that place.

I want you to know that she turns her head in the unexpected, My defensiveness if not yours to own, It’s over now. Defence, you were my protector, I’ve been there so often, I’m back to that place.

I want you to know the tension is real, Tight waves take over my chest, It’s over now. Hyper vigilance is my blessing and curse, I read you like a book, I’m back to that place.

I want you to know that I am unlovable, In all my flaws I’m learning to trust again, It’s over now. Reality twisted, The faith in my judgement is harder to rebuild I’m back to that place.

I want you to know that I’m trying, Shedding this skin of abuse is swimming in a swell, It’s over now. The effects still go strong, In every action, word and movement. I will get away from that place.
