What Remains?


Heaven in your arms.

Utopia in those eyes.

Days in paradise,

Nights in bliss.

My soul,

a small price to pay.

What remains?

Hell.

  1. When I read this, I think of a domestic abuser who manipulates and charms and traps a woman in his (false) love. She believes his lies, his proclamations of love, even as he strikes her with his hand and/or his words. She wants to believe he will change, that things will get better, that he really loves her. But he won’t and he doesn’t.

    I think of all those women who are living this hell. Not because of their choices, but because of the power and control of another person. I pray they will find the strength to break free, to emerge from the hell of abuse as strong strong women.

    Thank you for writing this powerful piece, Penny.
