A Man

A Man

You feel it
I conceal it
No proof it’s even there
But the feeling is so apparent
You can’t stray from the thought
It has taken control of you
I love you
I just don’t know how to explain it
Looking for the imperfect time
Because no time
Is ever a good one?
I don’t want to do this
I don’t want to hurt anyone
And that fact…
Stops me dead in my tracks
Disappointment is inevitable
Broken hearted
Prayers for strength
Because I feel I lack
The necessary courage
To speak
I’m weak…
So I continue to sit and wither away
Rotting from the inside
Pretending to be something I’m not
Whether it’s my happiness
Whether it’s me just being me
I’m not free…
For the benefit of the smiles of others
And in the process I’m losing myself
Who am I?
I no longer know
All I know
Is I am a man
An imperfect man
I would like to think I’m supportive
But in the midst of supporting
My support
Is dwindling beneath me
A husband
A provider
A protector…
It’s said that a woman’s job
Is never done
But being a man that takes on so much
I can vouch that it’s the same for us
And I don’t even know who I am
I’m lost in a world of complacency
A set schedule
To do what’s required of me
And if I’m a second too late
The world falls off its axis
I’ve lost me

About Mr. Watson

I'm a person who believes in Happiness & Love... I feel that it empowers us to unimaginable heights... Not just the aspect of Romance... But a Love for Life... Beauty & the Unknown! However, As Positive as I try to be... the struggles of Life are relevant in my world... Perfection doesn't exist and Wise Choices haven't always been made! I try to describe those things in full detail... Bringing u visual imagery through my Poetry ! I Love Feedback... GOOD... or BAD.

  1. Very well written and such a common feeling among men and women in our society. It is never expressed so poetically as you did.

  2. Well written. The hole in the heart is a place to go to to communicate with the Divine.

  3. Great write…seems there are times we think of all we have taken on….all we are responsible for….all we are judged for and it overwhelms…

  4. Beautifully written, free flowing and very touching!
