ach story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Therefore, no serial (continuation) stories. They become too complicated for our readers.

Unbidden tear drops fall from her slate grey eyes
As she hears the unspoken lies
Tumbling from his lips so easily
Hands and arms gesticulating freely
Slipping out like liquid syrup full of treacle
Viscous, sticky sentences full of shrapnel
Tracer bullets leaving cobweb scars
They light up in her mind like stars
She turns her back and prepares the tea
Acting normally in front of her young three
They will not know the sacrifices she makes
They won’t see or feel her heartache
One day when they are grown and strong
She will leave him and all that was wrong.
One day when he is gone
One day she will be alone
One day she will begin to heal
One day she will begin to feel
Love and affection
Not abuse and rejection.
