Six Word Fridays ~ Daze



her sharp words cut me deeply ~
rip me to shreds in places
too deep to name.... she blames
and accuses until reason looses the
battle and emotions swallow me whole.
i drown. i'm numb....pierced and
tangled, i wander through the day
in a daze. shake it off.
let it go. don't let her 
steal the joy. a mantra to
repeat until clarity returns. i catch
my breath...wonder if there's been
any healing {or just scarring}...and
wait for the next thorny barrage.

  2. Oh Adrienne,
    I HATE encounters like that -and they seem to come on so suddenly that I wonder, "How did that just happen??"

    A powerful poem and image.

    Blessings from m & jb

  3. Such a beautiful moment captured in time, looks so peaceful! Your words ring loud in my brain as I worry about a friend who is always angry. I ask myself why I still listen to her rants... Why?

    I agree with Josephine, POWERFUL!

  6. Deep thoughts - good for all of us. I recently removed myself from a very toxic relationship - amid many accusations and hatred from the other party - but it is so freeing and so calming. There are lessons for all of us in your post. Thank you.

  8. Wow that was pretty powerful. I wish I could write prose like that. I hope whatever inspired you to write this has been resolved. Loved the photo you chose to go with it.
