some things are inevitable, old tea

sips badly, after all the work is done.

remember the hotel, 1964,

we used to scour them especially

round the handle, then the base.

we peeled the tomatoes, and waited

for our boyfriends on the high wall outside.

My Story and Surviving Domestic Violence - July 2010

My Story and Surviving Domestic Violence - April 2010

This month started out good.  We continued on with our life and getting to know each other.  I could see he was a little more stressed at times.  He had to attend all these classes to get custody of his son and court and it was getting to him.  He isn't the kind that likes to follow rules and do as he is told.  The outcome from that was more verbal towards me.  If we got in a fight I was a stupid bitch.  I was told…

Wintery Games

As the wind tried
its way through
freezing cold
into her bones,
she thought -
there's no shame
in being warm,
while dressed like a mug,
in these
decidedly wintery games.

Hello? Is anyone there?

I asked myself this morning what I am doing with my life?  So far, I haven't gotten an answer back yet. 

I asked myself if I was happy.  For me that's a pretty easy one, "yes". 

But being happy, isn't the same as knowing what you are doing.  Is it? 

Going over the checklist of a so called successful life, I'm looking pretty good. 

Nice house, check.  Good, kind, faithful, nice looking husband, check.  Successful, not in trouble kids, check. No health…
