Lady in the blue dress.

What do you see lady in blue, those watchful eyes what do they view, why so tight lipped are you. I can see you are stressed just look at you, leaning forward your hands are tense your whole demeanour cries self defence.

Such a lovely dress but something is wrong why not short sleeves and with your legs it is way too long.Your husband is at the bar you sit and watch him from afar.He likes a shapely young body a weakness for a pretty face he is not worried if you see. Such a shit he is a disgrace.

You should not worry , you should not care, you still have your girlish figure and your flame red hair, your eyes are still that glorious blue you have hardly changed since he married you.

It is sad his words have worn you down , he has taken your smile and stretched it into a frown.  He has pointed out your flaws too often and criticized you so much his shouted put downs have not been forgotten he has shown you up once too often.

Every time he pushes you too far he buys you a pretty trinket like your amber necklace or a car. He thinks if he showers you with gifts you will forget the scars.

Take some strength girl don’t keep caving in you are the stronger one, you have all the strength of character. Much more than him, truth be known he has none. He is just a show off and a bully, he is a coward inside. What kind of man is it that feels big when he makes you cry.

He is the one who would fall apart if you left so please lady in the blue dress find smile don’t look so bereaved.

    anpother form of domestic violence is the belittling, perhaps the harsh words are not all the long dress and sleeves cover up.

      Yes no doubt she has bruises and old broken ribs and fingers yet it is the words and threats that hurt the most. The constant stream of controlling abuse that leaves the deepest scars.

    I hope she finds the strength to leave him from the strength conveyed in your heartfelt words.

    What wonderful rhythm your writing is having these days, Willow, just great.

    I so wish the lady in blue could respond! You have me thinking about her…

    Frankly, if he is abusive, I pray she finds the courage and strength to leave…
