She understood what the feeling was like all too well.
She had felt it a thousand times before yet had hoped to spare this little one of the same feeling.
The fear. The uncertainty. The moment when you covered your eyes in hopes of making it all disappear.
The bellowing sounds of anger followed by the deafening silence.
Waiting. Waiting for you to utter a breath because right now a breath was defiance.
She stopped. The moment passed. She found herself again. She found the part of herself that had patience and understanding. She apologized profusely to the innocent eyes that stared back at her. Confused eyes that longed to understand and only wanted to please.
She only wanted to feel safe and loved when she was a little one
I slip off my clothes
Slowly close my eyes
Warmth between my toes
My breath escapes in sighs
Slowly I lay back
Relaxation fills my soul
My achy joints crack
Your touch hot as coal
A caress with a glove
Full goblet and a foot rub
Where we women find love
Red wine in the bath tub
Once upon a time,
There was a little girl.
What she needed was to be protected...
but night after night
he snuck into her room,
Although she told...
everyone was in denial.
He lived his life as a monster
with no remorse or trial.
Now the little girls stands; fully grown.
"Dear Lord" she asks...
"Why couldn't he have left me alone?"
