Backbone

A poem on domestic violence.

Heartstring Eulogies

Your miserable existence could never make her happy.

You wanted her silent, compliant, and most of all, obedient. Just so you could stand a little taller. Be more of a man. But she was none of those things. Tell me, how does it feel to know that she has a backbone?

Punishment

Forgive yourself.

Heartstring Eulogies

Forgive yourself and end your punishment.

How many times have we heard this time and time again? Guilt is often one of those things that cling like a second skin. It’s always there, nagging and tugging in the background, whispering. If it were so easy to apologize to ourselves and be free, there’d be a lot less suffering in this world. It’s not easy. It’s probably one of the most difficult things we survivors can do. Just don’t give up hope that one day it will happen.
