Bruised

**Adult Subject Matter. Not indicative of anything I am going through right now.***
Bruised.
Molted yellow
garish brown
had to tell others
it was okay
I was fine.
Lied.ย 
Said I tripped on the stairs
cannot see at night
walked into that door
am a klutz
of the third degree.
No abuse here officer….
please leave.
Bleeding lip
eyes shaded with sadness
no escape
his way
or
no way.
I feel it.
His fist smashes
breaking cheek
nose
teeth shattering
moaning
pain engulfing.
Awaken.
Held in his arms
scalding tears
waterfall
scorching my skin.
He promises this is the last time..
I know the truth.
He will kill me.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
