Leaving Him

Leaving Him

A Poem by Susanna F
"

For my married friend whose wife is making his life a living hell - to his wife.

"
Sympathy, psych meds and wine, your drugs
Screams, guilt and fear, your weapons
And you say you will leave him
Because he needs beer to stand you.
Go, return to your sick family
Of abusers and users like you
Tell the Facebook world every detail
As you suicide on his pain medication.
Pull that rafter from your eye, girl
Nothing is ever your fault, is it?
Maybe if you just once said "I'm sorry,"
You could begin to deserve him.

I've seen it before. I'm always puzzled when I see a guy who looks like he has a head on his shoulders dating or married to the type you speak of. She probably has control over him in some way and has done things for him he couldn't do himself. In any case, good poem Samantha.

Beautiful writing, even though the subject matter is highly emotional. Some people just blend perfectly, and then there are those couples where everyone asks...."How on earth could they be together?" Even worse, like you correctly point out, is the irony of why great people maintain a status quo of suffering in unbalanced relationships.......

Sad situation, then again maybe his love for her is worth fighting for to him. Maybe he wants to help her, but the problem is the change MUST come from within. wish him luck. Thanks very well written.

Often for the same reason a nice girl will put up with abusive men. If a person has your heart in thier hand, they can do pretty much whatever they want. If you take over someone's heart, its easy to take over thier mind and body. You won't think it can happen to you, until it does, and if it does happen you will understand why others put up with it. It takes a LOT of will power pull away from someone like that, and most people just cant. Hence the abused often returning to thier abuser.
