Empty Nest

I experienced this in house , which was torture way to early due to the distortions of ex and psychiatrist and the effects of this and trauma on our children

The empty nest was barren energy , as I was removed from home and hearts prematurely; and other ” mothers” took over the character assignations


My nest is as it should be now, empty.

Tidy, ordered, calm.

My babies have grown, beautifully, and flown.

Just the way I taught them to.

And my heart is full of pride, and love, still so full of love.

But oh there is an ache there, a throb, a pang.

I have given of myself in a way that only a mother can.

So consuming is that gift,

there is scarce room for much else to thrive.

So what now?

My empty nest feels hollow,

the echo of my own breath rings in my ears.

My worries have not flown with the fledglings,

they linger still,

but now without the comfort of a slumbering head on a pillow up-stairs.

My imagination tells the tales I don’t want to see,

and my spare time,

once so coveted,

is now my enemy.

My nest is as it should be now, empty.

But I will not be empty little one.

I will fly, just like you, find my new place in this story.

Play music, bring friends, make noise and laughter and fill the house with life,

so that when you come home, you see nothing to worry about here, for that will clip your beautiful little wings.

And you will remember how nurturing your nest once was.

And you will crave the feeling of it, just once in a while.

This nest will never close and nor will I let it lose its love.

Fly, my loves, fly.

And remember the way back home.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
