After The Murder


Our Darling, Kay

Our Darling, Kay

What do you do when you discover written words that excite you, cause you to reflect, and make you say aloud, “I get what she’s saying here. I identify. I’ve been there. I’m not alone in this crazy world.”


When I come across writing like this, or dialogue, or poetry, or stories,  I want to share it with my friends. I want others to feel the way I do, because when you think about it, it’s all about the experience, right? The flow of syllables melting inside your ears; language, which forces us to rise higher.


My latest discovery is, FEMININE-COLLECTIVE , a site created by supermodel, JULIE ANDERSON . If you assume supermodel means uniformed and just pretty, think again. This site is diverse, empowering, provocative, intelligent, and knowledgeable about what is happening in our world.


At any rate, my piece, After The Murder is featured there today, so I hope you click over to read, comment, examine, and PLEASE take time to look at some of the other essays, poetry, interviews, and stories.


You may even want to submit some of your own work, darlings.  I know you all have a LOT to say!    xxX

    I have to be honest. I began to read and had to stop. I could feel myself getting worked up. He was/is a bastard. Pardon my language. Domestic violence is a cause close to my heart (nothing to do with my dad, but others).

    Your language is so beautiful and yet I cannot stop thinking of what motivated you to write those words. I don’t know what else to say now. I really don’t.


    Greetings from London.

      Dear, Cuban,
      what motivated me to write those words is
      “I am now my sister’s voice”
      And I shall NEVER stay silent about any kinds of abuse.
      Thanks for stopping by! x

    I was in an abusive relationship for ten years. It was my first real relationship and I was afraid if he left I’d be alone. I was almost murdered a few times. Eventually he left me for someone else, married her and made the news for trying to murder her in front of their 5 kids. I see him maybe once every 5 yrs and we say hello, whatever…I’m not afraid of him anymore. I drive to where we lived and the place is deserted but I sit and think. The place almost talks to me. I use the negative energy positively to help others. No one should have to go through what I did. When I saw him on the news I tracked down his wife and offered help. I gave a statement online and to a psychiatrist for family court. His mother got him out of jail and he never paid for what he did.

      It looks as though his mother is part of his problem.
      Thrilled you left your abuser before it was too late.
      Applauding you in MN. x

    I just went over to the site and read your article. I started crying on the first sentence. By the end I could hardly read the words, the tears won’t stop streaming. I am a domestic violence survivor. I am so so sorry for your loss. What you are doing with your words and with your blog is so important.

      I’m applauding you for being a SURVIVOR.
      You see, my sister never knew she was being abused…
      because it was mostly verbal, emotional, psychological. THIS IS ABUSE.
      He saved the violence for last.
      Hugs from Minnesota. x
