Exhausted

Today once again we did not agree, Utterances of emotional anger exchanged between you and me. Once again the reason ‘why’ escapes logical thinking, Drowning in confusion - sinking. Flowage of streams attempts to come to my eyes, I say to myself- You promised not to cry. I feel that I am treated more like a stranger than your lover, I observe the differences when you are entertained by another. I regret allowing the grief of what you bring, I am so depleted of you as I wear this ring. I believe that my feelings you must devour, When to your commands and will; I do not cower. Once again you apologize as I look in your eyes and ponder the question, Can this be? With tears in my eye I know that there is no more you and me. @ Tunisia Torres 3/12/2009

Tunisia, sometimes pain enters our lives and brings us down. And many people, as described in your poem, put on a different face to non-family members. It's sad. Keep writing, God bless you. Always, Dane
