Underneath an exterior tranquilly calm

She was shaking as much as a newly born lamb

With the door off its hinges there's nothing to slam

So she pushes it all deeper down 


Heat surrounds the now massive developing bruise 

Her reward for the solving of numerous clues

She'd accepted the drinking and women he screws 

And pushed her nightmare deeper down 


Biting down to regain some control of a lip

That's been trembling since she started planning the trip 

That will take her away from his shoulder and chip 

No longer prepared to push down 


Finding strength she had once buried deeper than coal 

Her heart beat a bit faster igniting her soul 

After years of being broken she re emerged whole 

With no need to push it all down

      This is a complete story with clear details and what appears to he a self resurrection, a happy hopeful ending. If only all were so lucky or strong enough to push through.

            Hopefully when she makes it to him, all her fears and doubts will disappear as soon as he wraps his arms around her , and let's her know that he is her safe place.

              So much empathy in the texture of your words-and it’s not easy to craft gentle words to build this imagery of horror-
              watching others suffer is hard but to wait with patience for their arrival makes it even harder-thanks Peto!
