Loss of choice

by Amber Bryan-Noppe

I was young, naive, and vulnerable when he entered my life. I was swept away with the idea of love and wonder. My inner thoughts screamed at me to get away from him, but I did not have a justifiable reason to escape. I ignored the red flags. He took away my choice and left me feeling powerless, dirty, and alone. It wasn't until years later that I truly understood what I was put through.
