Getting away with Not-so-literal murder {1}


And so it began
His treachery
His Abusive reign of terror
Subtly and otherwise
Of the beautiful soul 
And strong woman 
He once believed he adored
The one he married
Lets work backwards 
Shall we—
Of all the horrendous 
Sort of Things 
You judge her of now
The one who does all wrong
The one who "suppose to" do no-wrong is the accused of all things wrong. Accused and judged, constantly—it is easier that way. (more on that later.) The one who, all-she-ever-wanted was to be a loving mother. That, incidentally, is why she asked him to marry her—and he turned her down, and thought this was cute. A career-minded, giving of herself, out of the box (if you will, although she dislikes Wholeheartedly that cliche term) thinker, highly creative (she rather hear clever, but continues to fall short of that mark) the one who shall we say makes good choices under the radar, bad choices outside the radar where everyone is looking and talking. Let 'em talk she brushed all it off, but spoke directly finally to her "loyals" and cautioned them knowing they know. 
This woman is currently undergoing treatment for strong woman disease. Which god knows there is no known cure known to man... because why would any man want to cure a woman sturdy and hearty enough to rely herself. [she dislikes the question mark, rhetorical or otherwise].
So back to those "loyals" the ones who not only believed her but stood by her (quietly) and kindly, reminding her rather forcefully when "he who got away with murder" is a liar...and her open love and somewhat sheltered upbringing made her think that little white lies were told only by small children and rebellious teens. 
And so the story begins...of her shame.

    Sounds like she should not have shame. She believed in someone that wasn’t worthy of believing in. Has she learned her lesson…is she moving on. She shouldn’t be so hard on herself. Sounds like he was a creep.

    There’s a lot of that going around. Problem is, it’s not a disease. It’s a gift.

    I agree with funfreak, you have a gift and unfortunately, that gift gets persecuted when its exercised, however much its professed to be adored by said persecutor.
