  • Eggshells

    Treading eggshells of his ego
    In isolated innocence
    Your body no longer your own
    His lust satisfied on command
    Mutual, long since dismissed
    Your apparel needs approval
    Brute size used to deny your strength
    Confidence crushed by weight of control
    A shadow ghosting and withdrawn
    Drifts along his ticking timeline
    Faced with constant threat of alarm
    Social media censored
    Finance ring fenced curbs freedom
    Yet refuge supplies a shelter
    Security unlocks your soul
    Dignity and respect rebuilt
    Domestic Survivor’s courage

    Good to see your name in the queue, Jon. Challenging circumstance...still you spin life into gorgeous poetry.

      I have been very busy lately and poetry has been left with litttle time. I have written an unfinished pandemic vampire short story
