A blog sharing my love of God, the love He has for women and my frustration that the Church often doesn't realise this


Cracks in the Ceiling

Posted by God Loves Women on December 23, 2011 at 5:50 PM

May 2007

I look at the ceiling seeing a small crack

I hear in the distance someone hurting a lot

I stare at the crack as it slowly creeps out

Hearing distant grunts and terrible pain

The spidery lines of the cracks are growing

I count them as the sounds grow louder

Quickly they become an uncountable amount

The sounds have dulled but their pain intensified

As plaster dust falls onto my face

Crevices, fissures and chinks open above

While the sound of hurt can no longer be quieted

As the ceiling falls in pieces smashing against my body

The man I married gets up and starts to redress
