Everything from a strong hand around my neck -- to bruises on my breasts -- to sweet love making ..........
BUT the voices were still yelling in my head -- loud noisy confusing
Then last night when still I felt empty and lost ...... Sir Steve moved to sit beside me on the sofa -- wrapped his big strong arms around me and pulled me close -- head on his chest -- tears slowly running down my cheeks -- silence between us -- just his strength filling me up --
Then in bed we whispered in each other's ears -- and I could hear the voices silencing -- could feel the peace returning -- could believe that "we will indeed get through this together"
And as my eyes closed the last voice disappeared ......
Life is good when you learn you are not alone ... and that together problems will be solved.
