Here we go again

I can honestly say I love her
But not the shut that comes out of her mouth
Been thru many things many games 
Sex ain't what it's about
Maybe from the dumb chickens that left stitches 
I'm falling apart
And as I try to give my all
I'm mistaken my brain with my heart
Apparently I'm dumb founded in ways that make me behave
Like home training been lacking these days
Now confusion settles in 
Watching things go around the merry go round 
And my will bends
My pride I amend
My knees are made to kneel so I'm back down humbling again
But yet it's not enough 
I'm making more and more
Apathy between the 2 of us as I implore
That a change must happen
But whenever the mouth open
Seems to be felt that I need a duck taped wrapping
To shut the trap up
And deal with the uff 
Maybe I need to go back to seal all the thoughts
That wanna spark another altercation 
And just remind myself to be patient
Because I see all the others in line just waiting
But if I verbalized that I'm stupid j/s
So I must shut my trap 
Say nothing
I think that's been the reason for all the other mess
Because every time with everyone I'm relating the same shyt
Thinking it's better if I eat 38 sandwich
And be less of a problem for everyone
So they can live rich
I try and make my life with my wife
And be selfless 
To adhere to the words that flow from her quick
And have an understanding of the other half 
My half my partner my addition against the division in which
I subtract myself from the mass and even one day multiply 
If it's seen thru the eyes of what the lord have in store for this guy
I don't know what it is I do wrong 
Or even why 
But my emotions is what has me to write.......peace
