This poetry is part of my self-prescribed emotional healing process from years of verbal & emotional (V/E) abuse. When I was in the middle of it, I couldn’t identify what was wrong. The signs were there, but I didn’t have a definition for what they meant. Writing is my way of healing. I write when the tears will not come fast enough. I write when I feel angry or scared. I write to save my sanity, to keep me from going back to that dark place, to keep him - as one of my poems say - out of my head making me think that I deserved the heartache, the panic attacks and all the painful nonsense that I mistook for love. I write to find my way back to wholeness.
