A Poem by ChemicalMadness

i don’t now
     but i tried to
then

something seemed
     so worth it
when i believed

it was ours
     like lightening 
     (wildfires)

days spent
     nights….spent
     we had
everything

like pilots 
     we flew
     never needed
line of sight
     having sighted all we needed
     charted
          and hand held
no gps to get us there

but now
     now
          we can’t find home
     without a compass
or a 
         watch

too tired
     to believe
     or try

Awesome thanks!
Having been in a similar situation relatively recently, this poem certainly made me pause and reconsider exactly what the key moment was before it all went sour so quickly. I think expectations dont always meet reality. Tensions build along with frustration, then for some insane reason, we may lose sight of the other and grasp that it's actually not "all about me", but other's have feelings too. I love how you unpick each stitch in the fabric of complexity. Well written :) Penny

Thank you so much, penny. people are complex creatures...what drives us is never as clear as we thin.. read more
i went through this a few times...what started out so perfect, turned so rough..

like carol king sang "it used to be so easy livin' here with you, you were light and breezy and i knew just what to do/ now you seem so unhappy and i feel like a fool"

sometimes we lose sight of who we are as a couple, and the more we drive trying to find our road again, the more lost and further away from it we get.

how sad, the lost of hope in something once thought to be special.
