Where Are You When I Need You

Don’t pretend to understand me When your frustration and anger, comes first Don’t pretend to nod and listen When all you hear, is what you want You treat me as if I am a brainless idiot! Blaming me because I don’t agree with you Because I won’t let you control me I am a big girl living an independent life So, don’t pretend to know how I feel When you only believe the lies you convince yourself, I am Don’t say you love me, when your ego takes precedence over my feelings Dreaming of what you want us to be Dreaming of me, from a far Leaving me alone, to problem solve, on my own I do this to show I care To show you I am responsible All I want is for us to be on the same page, sharing our love again Laughing, kissing I need your love and attentiveness I need to feel your nurturing warmth Instead of taking it away from me Knowing my vulnerabilities Deliberately hurting me You told me you were my knight in shining armour Where are you, when I need you?

LOL Actually, this piece of writing did make me feel better after writing it Ruby. I cooped this raw emotion inside myself for 4 months after my boyfriend & I broke up after 6 1/2 yrs of being together. Glad I finally had the words to purge my system clean LOL Give it a try sometime even if it is just pure emotion. Helped me move on. Thanks for commenting Ruby :)

it feels very personal I enjoy that is written fluidly enough to come across as an open flow of thoughts
