Warning: This might be a trigger for some people

______________________________________________

Crying

Pressed into a corner

Whimpering

Hands over ears

Anger

Yelling

Flashes back to childhood

Hands shaking

Rocking back and forth

Flinches when someone comes close

Can’t breathe

Silence

Freezes

Braces for slap

For more yelling

Instead

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.
