Broken with Black Veil

Therapy left me in a state of brokenness that is just beyond words. Art expresses what I cannot say!

The woman has long hair and her braids are undone. Her face is blue because she has forgotten to breathe. There is a deep red crack along her torso. Two black birds are putting a white veil over her head. The veil has a white embroidered edge. There is a squash vine on the woman’s right arm, the squash leaf on her chest and a squash flower next to her face.

He healeth the broken in heart,
And bindeth up their wounds.
He telleth the number of the stars;
He calleth them all by their names.
Great is our Lord, and of great power:
His understanding is infinite. 

Psalm 147-3-5 KJV

I am not a trained psychologist, but as a human being with a certain experience of life, I can see just how devastating the effect of this toxic trilogy would have on an unsuspecting victim:

First she is pushed into contradicting goals by being encouraged to abandon her husband while ignoring her pleas for help to save the relationship. Secondly her expectations arising from the multiple relationships are intentionally thwarted. And then Thirdly she is given the blame for the disastrous psychological results.

As a result of reading Kit Balane’s rebuttal, Fatima’s recent behaviour and her many cries for help to undo the damage caused by Kit Balane became completely understandable.
