An Unpromised Vow by Desiree Cady

An Unpromised Vow

It was a day of laughter
A day of smiles
When she put on her white dress
And walked down the aisle.

And as she walked toward 
The groom in his black suit and tie
The church filled with friends and family
You couldn't find a dry eye.

As she whispered her vows 
Till death do they part 
She had no prediction
Of the hell that was about to start.

But as soon as the crowd was gone
And he carried her across the threshold 
The threats and abuse reigned down 
Leaving her dead inside with an intense cold.

As time went on she became a prisoner 
Trapped in her own private hell
So much pain she held inside 
It wasn't long until...

It was a day of sadness 
And a day of tears
When they buried her body in the ground
After just a few years.

I am a 33 year old mother of two beautiful girls who have been my saving grace. After a brutal attack a few years ago, I have been plagued by PTSD. After the attack and a few suicide attempts, I vowed to tell my story and help inspire others to get help and to know that they are not alone. 
I am currently wrapping up two manuscripts for publication and am set to be published in an upcoming anthology that will come out mid - November.
