Thread: A poem for my husband....

  1. #1

    A poem for my husband....

    Something I have done from a very young age, is to put my feelings into poetry. I am having a very hard time explaining to my husband at the moment how I am feeling, so I am leaving him this to find in the morning:

    I get that you have the black dog
    of depression on your head
    I get that you can't help rip apart
    the things I've done and said
    I get that you need a friendly ear
    and I know that its not mine
    And believe me when I say to you
    I've tried to give you time

    But what I don't get is what I've done
    to deserve all this pain?
    I cannot just stand by and watch
    12 years go down the drain
    I try to be supportive
    And do whatever I can
    But I am just one person
    And I can't help who I am

    I've tried so hard there's nothing left
    And now I'm numb inside
    And all I want to do is run
    And find somewhere to hide
    But there are children in the background
    And no matter how I think
    It is simply impossible
    For both of us to sink.

    Not sure it will do any good, but at least he might get just a little inkling of how I feel.

    What happened? Did he say anything when he found it?

    Sorry I didn't come back to this. I chickened out. Got out of bed and ripped it up. Not sure it would have got me anywhere. Just one of those...where it seemed like a good idea at the time. Thanks for asking though x

    Suzi's right. I wasn't willing to tell my hubby that I am seriously struggling. I felt I needed to keep quiet because he's just started a new job, 12 hour days etc. I had a complete meltdown last night and it all came flooding out, sobs, snot and all. What I'm trying to say is that if I'd talked to him before, we could have avoided getting to the point where I'm currently in a bad way, if I'd have just been honest. I know your situation is different but, like me, you're only going to hurt yourself if you continue like this ....

    "For both of us to sink."

    felling kinda... bit paralyzed now. Siking is a moving metaphor.

    Thanks for all the constructive words above, I'm getting all emotional while reading things like that, even tho artistically it's miles away from what I like.
