Scaffolding: a temporary structure used to enhance the safety of the soul while repairing the ruins.
To write around the things I cannot speak.
To frame the house of my humanity.
To put the roof back on my soul.
I will tell him in time, in bite-size packages about abuse, vulnerability, brokenness, and power. A powerful person himself, he must learn to wield his power well.
I was nervous to meet you. Nervous not to be enough. I was afraid to be, to bring my body not just my soul to you. And there you were – althogther lovely and smashing.
Sexual violence invades the space that you inhabit – literally leaving you feel like ruined refuse.
I too hunger for justice, truth and hope.
If you need me, you will find me in a secret and sacred place.
With an upturned chin to Him who is Justice, Truth, and Hope.
The coffee is hot.
The candles are lit.
The flame is small but bright enough to illuminate the way.
