Enough…

An alien environmentseparation-clip-art_csp11653128

is where I now belong.

A nose cut off to spite a face,

too proud to right the wrong.

 

 

 

.

 

Love and War…

bad-marriages-heart-attacks-01

Threats are made.

Promises broken.

In the heat of the moment,

cruel words are spoken.

Tears are shed,

The anger is loud.

It’s time to make up,

but we’re both too proud.

.

Wallflower…

The wallflower prepares

for a night on the town.

He’s slow picking her up,

but quick standing her down.

She watches the fun

from her place in the shade,

he ignores her all night,

she becomes more dismayed.

Why does he invite her

to be at his side?

It’s clear to all there

she’s just along for the ride…

 

.

 

One side ride…

A one sided visit

from a one sided man,

with a one sided dinner

as the one sided plan.

One sided business,

then some one sided pleasure,

throw in one sided snoring

for one sided good measure.

 

 

 

.

 

Alone…

Detached from his heart,

I’m floating alone.

Everyone so busy with life,

I’m on my own.

force a smile on my dial,

sympathy is not my style.

I’m left alone.

I can’t help hoping you I’ll hear,

but passing days say you don’t care.

I’m on my own.

 

 

.

 

Remote Control…

A brick wall of hostility.

Impossible to break through it.

Any attempt is wrong.

No attempt is rude.

The silent treatment.

A most powerful tool.

The last straw…

 

It takes a lot of courage to stop the cycle of misery.

Admitting how bad it is, and asking for help isn’t an easy thing.

Pride struggles with accepting support and care from friends.

Questioning yourself weakens determination…

 

“Where things really as bad as they seemed at the time..?”

 

Yes.

Things really were that bad.

 

It’s scary how easy it is to just give up, and return to the cycle.

It takes a lot of courage to break away from the cycle of misery.

I’m so proud of the steps you are taking, my friend.

You are not alone.
