When I posted, “he binds her to him,” I included a caveat about sex and violence, a warning that the prosetry might trigger memories for those dealing with a violent abusive relationship.
Even if someone is strong, has a support network to turn to, & learned to deal with the visible and invisible scars, something small as a grain of sand — a trigger need not be as large as a sand storm/ can act as a trigger. To bring you back to a place you don’t want to be. I have my triggers, and as I loose my strength or regress, I discover new ones. I’m learning to face them as part of my healing process.
In my own convoluted way: sorry if you read “he binds her” and it’s ugliness contained triggers that caused pain.
