Warning: This might be a trigger for some people



Pressed into a corner


Hands over ears



Flashes back to childhood

Hands shaking

Rocking back and forth

Flinches when someone comes close

Can’t breathe



Braces for slap

For more yelling


A gentle hand

Am pulled close

Rubs my back

Softly kisses the forhead

“I’m so sorry”

Is whispered in ear

Curls up in a ball

Too exhausted to move

Soft whispers

Loving words

Promises of better times ahead

And the cycle repeats again


To all those concerned, no, this is NOT based on me, it’s just something that came to me earlier this afternoon and I wanted to write it out.
