What do you see # 56 – 16 November 2020-No more in the steal of my nights, no more his creep

For Sadje’s what do you see?

Darkness settles in, I can feel the cold buried deep within my skin. Room #5 in some tiny little no name town. There is no turning back now

Runaway into the night, I can’t let my imagination take flight. My car left behind the building out of sight. Peeking out to see if anyone was in follow of me

I am alone for the first time, and it is a bit of a fright. I did it, I escaped the reality of his wrath. In the steal of the night. His massive hands cuffed around my neck, and wreak of his beer stained breath. I left

Looking through the window pane, my eyes suspect of it all. I am exhausted beyond belief. I can’t remember the last time I had uninterrupted sleep. Always in panic of his creep

I just need to shut, and lock the door. The door to him. Crawl into bed, safe away from what was my hell. The never ending manipulation, tip toeing as I always walked on egg shells in terror of his drunk ears

I can’t believe I am still standing here letting fear grip me. My feet are stiff, and lifeless

I have got to pry my hands off the door, my eyes are paralyzed in paranoia. I don’t see any silhouette of a giant sized drunk in pursuit of me

I need to close my eyes, shut the door. I need to get the sleep he robbed me of for all too long. No more song, and dance. Not a chance. No more in the steal of my nights. I took flight

Don’t give up before the miracle happens! Smile lots, forgive quickly, and never take life for granted!

    1. It had been awhile since I had the chance to join. I love participating so much. I injured myself in my move, and with my double mastectomy it really set me back. I am healing now. Thank you so much for the kind comment. I look forward to doing more ☺️🤩
