Writings from the Dark

I was sexually abused as a small child. I've done years of therapy and would prefer to be done with the whole thing. But, what sexual abuse leaves behind is never really done. It leaves scars on a life. It has left a hint of darkness in mine. It hangs at the edges of my days and shades my world. For the most part, I've learned to ignore it and focus on the good in my life.

As I've started writing more, I'm finding my psyche wants to dredge through all that dark stuff and bring it into the light. And so, I share these writings with you. They are written from the Dark in my mind. Hopefully, they help another know they are not alone in that dark place. What I am learning is the more I write and share these works, the less power the darkness has in my own life. I hope these writings give you the courage to shine more light on your own darkness.
