Disheveled and broken

She stared off
into the distance,
emotionally disheveled
and broken.

She was numb.
All that time…
All that effort…
All that money…
For what?

It all seemed so unfair!
He won.
She lost.
She had already
lost so much.
This was too much to bear.

The tears trickled at first.
The words,
forced to break through
trembling lips,
were incomprehensible.
She had to repeat herself.

He,
the one to whom she entrusted
her last chance at freedom,
had failed her.
His coldness was unforgivable.

He seemed almost indifferent.
He didn’t seem to accept
any responsibility
for any of this.

He made her
carry this burden alone.
How could it all
end like this?

To whom must she turn now?
How will she ever
find the strength
to start all over again?

The pain pierced through
every layer of her being!
The agony consumed her!

Wish not granted (yet)

I wanted it
to be over today.
I wanted April 17 2017
to be the day I was set free.

Free of you.
Free of the torture
I had to relive daily
in my minds eye.

Free of all the pain
you caused our family
all those years ago.

Seeing your face
made me relive the horror.
Hearing your voice
stirred up 6 years of emotions.

Your twisted words
revealed that
your disturbed mind
still needs healing.

I wanted it
to be over today,
but it’s not.

Fighting Dirty

I promised to never
hold your past against you.
You asked me for a chance
to prove yourself
so I wiped the slate clean —
I gave you a fresh start
and you promised
to do the same for me.

To this day,  I never used your past
in any of our arguments.
I never threw your mistakes
back in your face.
I always held my tongue
and kept my promise
to respect you as a person.
But you reneged —
your word was not bond.

You disrespected me,
called me names,
became violent,
threatened my life, 
then defiled me
in the worst way possible —
You took from me
what I would have given you freely
had you loved me like you promised.

To love,  honor and cherish,
for better for worse, 
in sickness and in health,
til death do us part —
those were the words we vowed, 
but you didn’t keep your promises.
You fought dirty.
You tried to use my past againt me, 
but now it seems
you get your just reward.
It doesn’t pay to fight dirty does it?
