Many readers haveMoreThe story of my healing from sexual and ritual abuse begins in the book, My Tears Fall Inside, and ends in The Silent Cries. Hear My Cry, a compilation of poems or writings from my soul, is a companion to the other two books.

Many readers have expressed a desire to read more of these poetic writings, which is why this book was born. Also, some who have read My Tears Fall Inside have wanted to know a little bit more about what really happened to me. Many of the poems in this book provide more details. By reading this book from cover to cover you will get a clearer picture of my story and how it fits together with the other two books, since in this book, you will also see an occasional blurb describing the situation when certain support people came into my life or when they left.Until I was in my mid-thirties, I had totally blocked out and forgotten the sexual and ritual abuse I had suffered at a very young age.

As an adult, memories began to flood back through nightmares and flashbacks. When my healing journey began, I discovered that I had been protected over the years from the memories of these horrors by young child parts that I had spontaneously created during the torture and abuse. Normal young children are very creative and many have pretend friends. My abuse was so extreme that it was unfathomable to my young mind, so I created many pretend friends to help me. In my mind, those terrible things happened to the pretend friends and not to me.

In that way, I was able to separate my conscious self from all the horrors that I lived through. These wonderful pretend friends or parts kept all of my horrific memories hidden from me until my mind determined that I was strong enough to take back (or process) those memories.A few months after I began therapy, my therapist was very concerned because even though my parts were willing to begin revealing what had happened to them, all of my emotions were completely blocked.

My emotions were actually being held by other inside parts that were well hidden. These emotions were so massive that my inside parts did not dare to let them touch me. As I discussed my abuse with my therapist, there were no emotions whatsoever and I realized that over the previous ten years, I had quit crying altogether while my body suffered from severe chest pains, other body aches, and developing ulcers.

My therapist was very concerned and told me I HAD to find some way to release my feelings because those locked up emotions were injuring my body.The next time I felt chest pain, I decided to just write what came into my mind. I wrote four poems in an hour and the chest pain went away. The writings poured out of me as if great flood gates had opened and the water could no longer be stopped. I found that I was compelled to write because it was the ONLY way I could express the feelings that were locked inside.Over the years, as I have occasionally shared a poem or two, I have learned that all people can relate to much of what Ive written.

Everyone experiences pain and heartache at some point in their lives. The feelings I expressed in these poems are feelings that all people experience. The fact that my feelings were separated into so many parts and were so extreme gave my parts the ability to write how they felt in ways that might help a person without my background say, YES! This is how I feel but I have never been able to put it into words!

For this reason, the book has the potential to help anyone who has ever felt pain, sadness, betrayal, anger, fear, depression and a myriad of other emotions. I hope that by reading this book, people will find a voice for how they feel and what they are going through in their own lives, and be able to share a poem with someone else in order to help others understand their own feelings.

I hope this book brings you a greater understanding of yourself and your own feelings and also a greater understanding of those around you.
