When I stabbed him, I didn’t know he was going to die. I know that sounds plainly stupid,  but I murdered him for reasons best known to me. Murdered? That sounds too subtle for what I did; I massacred him, I stabbed every living part of his body and it still surprises me that I could do that to the same person I would have laid down my life for.

I stood for several minutes, holding the knife I used to butcher a living soul like myself but instead of me feeling guilty, I felt fulfilled and really wanted to stab him all over again, making him feel the sharp yet gradual pain he inflicted on me. I walked slowly towards the door, still holding the knife firm in my hands but a gun pointing at me made me loose my grip and I dropped the knife, covered in fear. I walked into the van without fear or regret and a major part of me was beginning to feel I had lost my senses. The torture room made me know I haven’t, because it was there I was conscious of the unforgivable crime I had committed and I knew I was going to die but it didn’t matter, or maybe it did. The execution room brought back the feeling of anger and I wished again that I had actually stabbed him all over like I wanted to but I kept asking myself if my justification was right.

 With tears filled in my eyes, I looked at him with the knife still held firmly and his pleading eyes still searching mine, lost in explanations and apologies. I looked straight into his eyes and realized nothing could stop me from loving him, yet, I dropped the knife and said to him; “I hate you” as I ran out of the house. Still running with tears flowing uncontrollably from my eyes, I found myself feeling how much I love him despite all.

About what he did, my mouth is too heavy to speak of it but it was worth me letting him go, if not killing him.

despite d love she had, still went to d extent of butchering DAT one she wished to be for d rest of her life….
taken to d torture room is not d best option.
any individual shud not butch his/her fellow irrespective of any issues…
her cognition needs to be reconstructed.
second,we actually don’t know why she committed d act #DiWUra#…
third, like seriously nowadays men ar d victim of domestic violence….
ar women doing d act out of jealousy, protection or wanted to be feministic in nature???????

    Oyeronke, there are so many unbelievable issues happening out there, some of which many cannot explain. Regardless, anyone who sees murder as an option will not go unpunished.

      Will go unpunished according to the law, am not ruling out the fact.
      Truest, there are so many things happening in the closet that cannot be described or explained In public.
      But any individual who sees manslaughterry,butcherry,sucidery and particularly muderry as the last option is actually irrational in her/his thought, anger was mentioned in the writeup…
      Agreed she will go unpunished but at d same time she needs psychotherapy….
      #gold# can you vividly remember the case of mariam sanda who did the same to her husband by seen messages despite the awareness of sharia law.
      However, there so many local cases that looks like this…
      What am trying to pinpoint is that her thinking, feeling,intuition and sensation is severely irrational.

        Good point raised. If you read the story well though, you will realize she only thought of killing him in her head. She didn’t kill him although she was that angry. On another note however, in real life situations where these things happen, the victims should flee before they become psychologically damaged. I hope we all have the strength to take such bold steps.

I am against and will always be against domestic violence, but an eye for an eye leaves everyone blind,in this case I guess it’s a soul for an eye,that’s just wrong on all levels

    Two wrongs will never make a right. I hope we all learn that as humans. However, the lady in the story wanted to kill him but thought of the consequences, then dropped her knife instead. There is a twist to the story.

Great piece. There is no icon to “like” the piece

I do like the manner in which you have framed this particular problem plus it does provide me some fodder for thought. Nevertheless, from what precisely I have observed, I simply just wish when other commentary stack on that folks continue to be on point and not embark upon a tirade associated with the news du jour. Still, thank you for this exceptional point and even though I can not concur with this in totality, I respect your perspective.
