Surviving Domestic Violence


All Thoughts Prevail


Head swirling

Steady as a rock

Mind reeling

Standing still

Heart thumping

Beating not

Really feeling

Then again not

The touch of a hand

In absence dwells

A heart torn apart

Whole and well

Imposing a thought

Clean slate

With no legs to walk

Run away

Heaven or hell

No way to tell

Love it

Leave it

All thoughts prevail

I write about DV, ya’ll know that. OM has been instrumental in helping me to increase my readers. I gained double the followers in 36 hours and I am glad of it. The more our voices as survivors are heard the greater the chance that we can help a victim and support other survivors.
Thanks OM. You did an amazing job.

Please feel free to reblog, retweet, FB or all three.

There is only one way to break the silence and bring this ever growing nightmare to the forefront of the minds of others and that is to SPEAK out in the capacity that we can.

Lifes Journey – For Teela

My good friend Jenni over at Unload and Unwind made this post for me as she knew I was feeling a little down yesterday and I wanted to share it with ya’ll. It touched my heart and I want her to know just how much her friendship means to me.

dance of life

I think that sometimes it is important to remember how far we’ve come and take joy in the journey you’ve now set for yourself. I thought that a very brave woman who I’ve met here [Surviving Domestic Violence] could do with a reminder of just how much she has changed her life.

What I Want

This post is one that expresses my desire as a woman.  Being an abused woman doesn’t exclude me from a woman who needs to be loved and cherished.  I deserve that.  We all do.  We are worthy of love and care.  We deserve it.

I want and need a simple man.  Which brings to mind a song I love and reminds me of a man I know and adore.
