I'm sitting here wondering how did it get this far.
Emotions allowing conflict this is not who we are.
How our love drifted , was it meant to be this way.
Yesterday had some promise, today we're standing still,
thinking about tomorrow my spine feels a chill.
I'm alone here waiting for you to understand.
I never promised you a rose garden
Just be my friend Just hold my hand.
My dreams and wishes I have learned to overcome,
That's just a fairy tale never to blossom.
My heart is cold now as I wait for yours to warm.
I'm feeling alone now there's a chill in this home.
Reaching out to love you will only cause more pain.
I'm not ready to repeat this pattern over again.
I'm trying to be patient since I'm the one who understands,
But somehow you don't notice all this was never planned.
My loving heart you often bruised with some of the words you used.
Somehow you just never understood how that made me feel abused.
I know you never meant to hurt me in this way.
Abused is something that I felt not the game you meant to play.
The words you say are your shield when your hurting deep inside
When will come the time you put down your masculine pride
You don't seem to have the ability to see things as I do
and even though you try I can't seem to get my feelings through.
I will sit here patiently because I know your one great guy
but somehow you can't seem to understand how we can both fly.
I will never leave you even though I said I would.
Some of those hurtful words I'd take back if I could.
You also said some things to me that I was not strong enough to hear.
You never knew how much they hurt even though I thought I made it clear.
I know that you have some fears, Your life had hurt you some,
but those fears are yours not mine to overcome. 
So all I have left to do is patiently await
remove your fears open up your heart don't wait till it's too late.

A compelling read that guides the read from line to line. Well done with a real feeling to it.

Sounds like she's finally noticing the warts on the handsome prince, Helen. Even if it isn't meant to be, both parties can ignore the warts for awhile. When it comes to the point where the warts are all you see, then it's make a new plan, Stan time..len

Beautifully revealing  write that shows your heart...and the pain inside that was so evident when this was first written...

Times like this are miserably hard...and I admire the strength you are both showing!

Hugs and love to you all...

Helen its difficult when it comes to this stage of not understanding each others needs. I hope you are managing to compromise with each other now love. A lot of harsh words are said in anger and it pains the heart to wish they had never been spoken. Hugs

Writing from the heart as you have done (or did) here is a

good way to sort things out. That's one of the great things about

this site...there is always someone out here who listens and

Pride can destroy a relationship. We always seem to hurt those closest to us...the very ones that we should nurture the most. "too late" happens but it comes at a different time for every couple. I know how much it hurts to revisit this kind of pain. *hugz*
