Silent secrets: Communicating abuse

The artist’s white rose heart

Bursting out of the page

Reaching for anyone who might be able to help

Jewellery—there’s no lack of money,

Just lacking compassion, and empathy.

Trying, failing, trying, to speak

The longing to say words

For the sounds to tumble out of my mouth

Forbidden speech–

The despair of silence.

The effort of work that is

Helping someone understand,

While unable to utter a single word

Of truth.

I got help from https://steppingout.org.au
