WOW! This hit home.
I see you.
I see the invisible pain you carry every day.
I see the fear that lingers in your eyes,
Never feeling safe.
I see how you’re easily startled
How you look for his face in every crowd
How you want to disappear completely
Never to be found.
I hear you.
I hear your silent screams
I hear your cries into a pillow at night
I hear the soundtrack in your head
Replaying every moment and every fight.
I hear you wonder if this was all your fault
If you deserve the things he did to you
The put-downs, the threats,
The temper tantrums he threw.
I know you.
I know your brokenness
I know the emptiness you feel
So heavy sometimes
You think it can’t possibly be real.
I know it’s hard to get up in the morning
But it’s even harder…
