Heidi Willson






same routine each day
tip toe through life to avoid
evoking anger


never knowing cause
for his violent manner


blaming self only
feeling trapped with no escape
accepting treatment


then things went too far
bruised and beaten savagely
almost can’t get up


waking up with pain
realizing it’s not her fault
she packs bag and leaves










beware of danger
look into faery’s eyes, trance
evil intentions


avoid piercing glare
once eyes meet faery’s, despair
consciousness soon lost


afterwards a haze
never same person again
losing inner glow
