I tried very hard to please you.
I spoke as I should and was careful with my words.
Until I got tired.
You reminded me of the shadows, told me to be quick.
You shouted with a victorious cry when you thought you’d won.
You belittled my mind.
And I wonder if it makes you happy,
when you make me small.
When you come out the winner, while I am the loser.
I know I do the same thing again and again, I repeat and take too long to explain… but I had hoped you’d be kind.
What happened to the vows?
I will love you in the good and the bad, in sickness and in health…. etc etc etc
Do I believe you lied? No.
You promised me a promise I secretly wish you’d remember, but understand why you do not.
Maybe I’m not easy to live with. Maybe I make life hard. Maybe my mindlessness is not easy on you. Perhaps, it’s my fault as well
for the hole we’ve stuck ourselves in.
I just wish we knew how to dig ourselves out.
