Trapped

I finally had to take her to the ER.

She had gotten to a point where I couldn't even tell if she was breathing anymore. Her days would be spent in what looked like endless slumber, I could only just see her thinned out concave chest move up and down. It was bad, like she thought she would be safe from him if she stayed hidden in her world of dreams.

To her, it wasn't safe to come out to eat.

To her, it wasn't safe to come out for her health.

To her, it wasn't safe to come out and see... me.

She trapped herself in her own mind to be safe from his clutches, even if it meant never seeing me again... that's how scared she was.

When I picked her up, her body offered no resistance at all... it just went limp in my arms. If I didn't cradle her head, it fell back with such force that her eyelids would recede just enough to see the whites of her eyes.

When they asked me what was wrong with her, a part of me wanted to scream out that I thought she was dead. Another part of me was hoping she would open her eyes, laugh, and tell me she was just taking a nap... irrational and stupid, I know. The nurse kept looking at me like I should have a better answer than silence.

All I could think to say with any certainty was, "I don't know".
