I am troubled
Loving you so much
I forgive behavior
and rudeness
so I may feel your touch
I am deaf to those
hurtful words you speak
choosing to ignore
it will stop soon, I know
I have become meek
I take it, and take it
until one day I explode
Everything suppressed
Now spewing forth
and on you bestowed
In the silence
an aftermath of devastation
Stinging, burning
breaking of hearts
Living in condemnation

    Sometimes we all need to let things vent.

    Ex Partner got a hot cup of coffee thrown over him when he pushed me too far.

        It was a waste of good coffee though. I left the relationship a year later.

        Many years ago, and I mean many, I remember cleaning spaghetti bolognaise off my ceiling for at least 6 months! 🤭🤣 We laughed about it a lot afterwards.

        Beats my coffee hands down. What on earth happened, or shouldn’t I ask? I did blow up eggs once, putting some on to boil for sandwiches then forgetting them.

    I often wish I’d grown a back bone and spewed upon my ex, but I remained too fearful…

      It’s so easy to lose ourselves in the shadow of others 😢

        Exactly what happened–I totally lost myself…by the end, I didn’t even know what my fave color was when I went shopping for a blazer. It was a shock, having to learn myself anew. Thank you for letting me share about things which are triggered by your posts and comments–I appreciate it, it’s really helpful I think.

        Yes, when we look back it is hard to recognize ourselves isn’t it? I do understand, more than you know. Thank you for sharing 💕
