Leaving Ugly

I Write Her


three layers of pain…
the abuse
her denial of the cruelty
society’s expectation of forgiveness

three levels of invalidation
a child struggling
thru the experiences
trying to rise to adulthood

an adult suffering
deep-held self-loathing
destructive behavior
more to overcome

a lifetime to heal
raw old wounds
blood let a minimum
sutured just so

never feeling
quite whole
it’s hard leaving
the ugly inside
