Incompatible

You’re drowning me
By any means
Issues
Sorrows
Insecurities
Things that aren’t even as bad as they seem
The misperception of your emotions
Prevents you from thinking logically
I LOVE you
And you KNOW it
But no matter what I do or say
You constantly fish…
For negativity
I can’t take it
Your burdens run thick
Like sap from a tree
Slowly gaining
Eventually concealing
Weighing down
Hardening…
Becoming almost impossible to pierce
Without shattering
You!
When we get along
Happiness is undeniably present
It shines brighter than the sun
And just like night and day
When we disagree…
You forget that there ever was a sun.
Uncertainty…
Runs deep in your veins
Constantly feeling attacked
Every word is an insult
Making it difficult for me to speak
Walking on egg shells
I’m at a loss for words
I lose desire to speak
Tension on the rise
Rage begins surfacing
My mind drifts from restriction
Now…
I lash out when I speak
Roles reverse
Now your feelings are hurt
And I become the agitator
But even in the midst
Of my so called harsh words
Degrading is something I’ll never be
I don’t tear you down
You just like to think things through and through
Until you convince yourself
That you’re being attacked
Abused…
That’s not me
It starts with you
But when you see red
There’s nothing I can do
Just know you’re drowning me in your sorrows
Makes me feel
Incompatible

Sleepless

Sleepless

I want to tell her
I love her
All day!
But she doesn’t hear me…
Maybe she doesn’t want to hear me.
I want to kiss and caress her
Every night
But I try to engage…
& she selfishly doesn’t want to be bothered.
I have a companion
Yet I’m alone
Thoughtlessness
The worst kind of neglect
Issues I’ll never be able to understand.
No communication…
She’s always occupied.
Sleepless nights
Yearning to be with her.
Not just passion
All aspects of affection.
We’re lying next to one another
Silence fills the air
It’s freezing in my home
Yet the heat is working fine
No desire for anything
Just lying there
Expiring time
Where has the love gone
I’m lying here in disbelief
As I find myself alone
Reminiscing on our indifference
On the matter of
What’s important to ME…
Those were the things she has been saying to me…
All along!
Another love lost.
