Opening the door........




He had left for work.

The clock told her that she still had an hour, before her little one woke up.

All those moments of physical and emotional abuse swam before her eyes.

She wanted to cry out the frustration of her embittered heart.

Yearning for solitude, she looked at the door, that promised her some freedom.

She checked the time.  Very little time to act.

Meticulously, she gathered what she needed, and  opened the door.

Here was the place where she could wash away her sorrows.





Sighing , she turned on the shower for the pampering stream of hot water.

  3. Sometimes a simple shower can bring such solace to a hurting heart. Hope she finds some solace elsewhere too, and courage to stand up against the abuse.

  10. This is the story of many people's lives. They are in terrible situations, but for some reason they cannot walk away. Then, they have to find some way of temporary release.
