I am troubled
Loving you so much
I forgive behavior
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
Now spewing forth
and on you bestowed
In the silence
an aftermath of devastation
breaking of hearts
Living in condemnation

Sometimes we all need to let things vent.
I seem to hold things in too long 🤭
There is just that much a person can take. Great poem
Yes, unfortunately 😕 Thanks Sadje
You’re welcome Christine.
Ex Partner got a hot cup of coffee thrown over him when he pushed me too far.
So funny Di…it’s easily done 🙄
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 💕
