One Way Ticket

Goodbye Home

Well, it’s time..

I’m finally leaving on Sunday, one way to Europe. And what a mission life has been ..  escaping and divorcing my ex, recovering from illness, surviving his wrath, selling my home and belongings, and the heart ache of having no other choice but to re-home my much loved fur baby.

I’ve had to let go of a lot of things I love in order to survive one dangerous man, in order to live well and be free. Divorcing him wasn’t enough, I had to let go of my home, my belongings, my family, my pets, my country… and maybe even my identity.

Not many would believe what I’ve been through. I find it hard to believe! My life was robbed from me, but now it’s time to rob it back..

I have been blessed, at time miracles have happened. Just when I needed it most amazing help has arrived that enabled me to keep going when I really couldn’t do it alone anymore. I am grateful.

I will finally be free of this sociopathic ex. A man who would stop at nothing to destroy me.

You have to survive abusive relationships. And I never knew the degree of how sick and twisted a person can be.

Now I do. Now I am wiser.

 I’m meeting two of my adult children in Spain for Christmas. We have all had the courage to leave this man and our country, and have no plans of returning.

Finally things are working out. Finally life can be good.

Can’t help but wonder what’s next… exciting!!

Lost My Colour

I lost my colour some time ago

I’m not sure where it’s gone

My days are dark

My nights are bleak

Words don’t come out

I cannot speak.

I cannot talk

I cannot write

I can’t create

Life’s became a fight

I could sing

When you were here

I could paint and colour

But then you left

Too scared to live

Too scared to love

Hiding under cover

Don’t you know

That when you went

You took with you

My rainbow too

So now we both must suffer

Love stays inside

You feel its loss

You cannot hide

It gives you glow

So take a risk

Be bold

Be brave

Live, love, go with the flow

You deserve it

I don’t think you know

… and without it..

Life is painted black.
