Fireworks in My Head

I saw stars

Bright Light

Explosion

Flashback

July Fourth

Freedom?

Fighting

Fifty-four years

Flash!

Slapped

Bang!

Head knocked

Counter blow

How far will he go?

I never know

Then I wake

Curled in a ball

Sweating

One day

I’ll be free

Red, white & blue

Pretty fireworks

Purple & blue

Flesh healed

Psyche bruised

But healing

Writing my way to

Freedom

Living in the safest home I ever had with my husband. 2012 I began to heal. I had to get sober first and I am still a work in progress. Even my bad days now are better than my good days then.
