Who Are You?

Who Are You?

What happened to you?
Spouting allegations
I recognize you no more
You are a strange aberration
Like a two headed monster
With whom am I dealing
An anomaly of a man 
Who can leave me reeling
 
Unable to collect myself
when you turn on a dime
My feelings muddled
Being slow is now a crime
Confidence has been lost
I bounce off your arrogance
Spinning and confused
I doubt my relevance

    Reminds me of my former husband – really knew how to turn me inside out and upside down. Good write, Christine.

      Why and how does that happen V.J.? An intelligent woman can be reduced to a heap of blubbering fool 😏

        Seventeen years I lived it. Only in hindsight do I see what happened. I think my parents’ relationship set me up for it. Heart and mind are separate entities.

        I’m sorry. You are right about our parent’s relationship. That is who we learn from 😔

        But we do learn, and that’s the hopeful part.
