In Memory of Kay

613 Days


—As long as I can I will look at this world for both of us.  As long as I can I
will laugh with the birds, I will sing with the flowers, I will pray to the
stars, for both of us.——Sascha

 

 

~~It’s been 613 days since you
left me.

It’s been an eternity, an infinity, a mad existence.

It’s been a split second in time.

It’s been Hell on Earth.

A pain you cannot touch.

 

A loss you cannot grasp fully,
completely, wholly.

Life can change in a solitary blink of the eye.

 

Never doubt it.
Never dismiss the delicateness of the beating heart.

How quickly it can cease.  How instantly
it can surrender & release itself.

One can be mowing the lawn, listening to an audio book, & baking a chicken
for Wednesday’s dinner.
And quite suddenlythe phone rings..

Did you know….Are you sitting down….Mike shot
Kay….Hurry…Hurry…Hurry.”

I was listening to Pillars of the Earth
on my headset.

I continue to wonder if that’s the reason I didn’t know immediately…

Instinctively.  Intuitively.

That he killed you.

That he stopped your heart.

That he finally finished what he had planned to do for

 

one.
long.   year.

Remember when we were baking chocolate chip cookies at your house?

….and how we had to whisper because we never knew where he’d be standing,
stalking, staring.

 

Stop Staring You Son-Of- A-
Bitch.     Get the fuck out away from us.

“What the hell is wrong with him…Why
can’t he go…Can’t he understand it’s over.”

 

We had tickets for Sex and the
City that Wednesday night.

 

“I’ll see you at 5:30.
The lines will be outrageous. I can’t wait!”

“Okay,  I love
you.”

 

I love you.     I love you.

 

The next time I saw youyour eyes were closed,  you were laying on a hospital bed, you were
overflowing with despicable, ugly, snake-like tubes.

 

Your voice was silent.

 

You were beautiful.

 

The  pink lipstick still on your lips as if you had just smeared
it on before you arrived there.

 

A single blink of the eyelid…
eyelashes touching skin.

 

3 gun shots to the back of the
head.

 

Then the heart shuts down

 

like the swift slam of a gate.

 

I’ll never wait.

 

Never stop screaming.    Never let you go.

 

I’ll never be SILENT.

 

I’ll be telling your story
forever & ever…

 

Until we meet again, my dear
sister.

 

—-Dearest,
Reader,  after you finish reading this-Please Don’t Wait.  Tell your favorite people in your life that you love
them, love them, love them.

    I’m crying. Crying. Every time you tell us more of the story, I cry. I didn’t know you were listening to Pillars of the Earth. I didn’t know you had plans for a movie that night. I didn’t know he stalked and stared like a weirdo all the time. So horrible. She was gorgeous and she was your best friend. I think it is a beautiful thing that you keep her memory alive for all of us by writing about her on this blog. That is a beautiful thing.

    Searing and heartbreaking post. My sister, too, died far too young, though from different circumstances. I understand the pain that accompanies their absence. Thank you for telling you and your sister’s story – it helps others so much.

    Your beautiful post reminded me of something I wrote when I lost my husband many years ago:

    How do people stand it, when ordinary loss is magnified by evil?

    Of course, some of them don’t—one of the ways of recognizing when evil is at work is the extent of collateral damage, to use a term of its own coinage. But for those who do survive, I think the answer is not what we read in textbooks on the management of grief: the ultimate answer is not acceptance. We survive precisely because we will never accept the loss; we will never let go; we will never forget; we will hold on to the bodies of the people we love until they are torn from us, until they rot off the bones, and then we will hold on to the bones, use them for our own walking sticks until they crumble, and then we will hold on to the memory of those bones and flesh and the spirit they housed, we will hold on to the hope we broke together like bread, and we will never let go.

    I am not speaking of holding on to bitterness, but love.

      ~~~~Oh, How I love your words.

      Exquisite. Beautiful.

      **** We survive precisely because we will never accept the loss; we will never let go; we will never forget; we will hold on to the bodies of the people we love until they are torn from us, until they rot off the bones, and then we will hold on to the bones, use them for our own walking sticks until they crumble***

      Still absorbing the words.

      thank you, Barbara.

    Kim, with every photo I see of Kay, she seems more lovely! Oh my goodness, what a beauty! As I read this post, through your tears, through your sadness, I saw strength. Resolution. Perseverance. Passionate conviction. Something tells me that with every post, Kay cheers. Cheers at your reaction. Cheers that you’re fighting the fight; encouraging women to get out while they can. Your relentless effort to educate, to create awareness is something that is much needed by women who find themselves in the same situation Kay did. Your words serve to prompt them to seek refuge, away from their abuser, where they can be protected by their loved ones and friends. Your mourning is more than mourning. It’s a cry to abused women and their families to take action before it’s too late. Thank you for this. Thank you for opening your soul and letting us in. A big hug for you, lady.

    If something happened to either one of my sisters there would be a hole inside of me that could never be filled. I cannot begin to imagine the heartache you are suffering over the loss of your not only your sister, but your best friend.

    I did exactly what you asked the first time I read this post, and told all of the people closest to me how much they mean to me. It felt really good….thank you for that.

    A friend of mine recently wrote a piece about her experience with abuse. I referred her to this post, and now I am referring you to hers: http://expatspost.com/creative/essay/murder-of-the-spirit-a-tale-of-domestic-violence/

    The more voices that are heard, the wider the message spreads.

    613 Days of you and I think of our friend Coach on the Edge- but it is you who have been living on the edge and living for two. You have become – what is it when we are cooking- REDUCED! LOL Like reduction cooking- in your writing you have boiled out all the unessential ingredients and been left with emotionally rich and potent words for us that have not walked in your high heels. And like you, your words are so very, very wise.Many hugs and we will see each other some day,too. xxoo Susan
