Circles

This short work is an examination of intimate partner violence experienced by the author. Through the creation of Circles, she finds similar patterns in the chaos and pain created by different individuals. "If I had seen or heard more examples of intimate partner violence, maybe I would’ve known what was going on. I used to wonder if perhaps knowledge would’ve made it easier to escape. It’s like a formula that I could never put together but that I can understand in hindsight."
