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.
