I wrote this poem the day after I found out my abuser had been found guilty. It details my experience of Court, and then the huge change in emotions when I received the call. I wasn't quite as "released" as I thought I was; I underestimated the effect the abuse and the trauma that going to court itself would bring. However, that real, honest, raw feeling of pure...escape...was so strong I can feel it clearly even now.

Walking up steps
Heart pounds
The dreaded day finally approaches

Sat in room, waiting
Pulse races
Reading those papers for the first time in years
