its okay to go through storms in life. Dont let yourself be consumed by them. You'll get past this.
you might not see much change.
But the person you were two years ago
Would be so proud of you.
Never stop improving yourself. Love yourself. Take time in healing.
Years have passed since me and you
And yet, your abuse still claims my mind.
I think its about time I leave my past behind.
To live a life thats honest and true.

Because of what you did to me
I've sheltered myself in fear
I've never let anyone near
Never allowed myself to be free.

Your abuse caused so much hate,
I've lost so much time in this life
Dwelling on all the pain and strife
Thinking this is my only fate.

Well no longer!
You see this man?
He's got a plan!
And is so much stronger!

Far too long, from myself ive been gone
I forgive you for being so unkind
But no longer do you haunt my mind.
I, am moving on.
first poem in years. Be kind to yourselves.  Don't let your past control your present. You are loved.

I look at you
Laying in that bed
And I honestly wonder
What's going on in your head

24 hours ago
You attempted suicide
And now here I am
Sitting by your side

And while you seem oh so happy
But look at me so still
I think you've forgotten
Who's going to pay this bill.

You lay in that bed
With IVs and tubes
Wondering why I'm upset
When your boyfriend talks about your *****.

You laugh with them
And seem happy
But when you look at me
I see only sappy

You give me this look
Like as if you're blue
For having your *******
In the ICU next to you

Stop the ******* pity
I dont want any of it
I'm tired of this stupid game
I'm sick of this ****.

You're already making plans
When you leave this forsaken place
But when I ask to take you out
You give me a certain face

You only say maybe
And give me a fake smile
But plans with him
Doesn't seem to take a while.

Lord please forgive me
For the sins I will make
But this whole ******* game
Is starting to seem fake.

I'm so proud of you.
I love the things that you do.
Keep up the good work.

I received the worst news today
I felt my life start to fade away.
I rushed in an instant over there
Breaking multiple laws without a care.

I saw the nurses
The confusion on their face
As a crazed man ran through their door
Everything in him beginning to race

"Where's my wife"
I asked in fear
Scared for my life
Of the news I'm about to hear.

They took too long
I saw her in her bed
I sprinted over to her
Thinking the worst in my head

She saw me
With a worried look in her eye
I held her in my arms
And began to uncontrollably cry.

So much has happened
The past few hours of my life
But it feels like forever
Since I last held my wife

And here I sit
Next to her bed
Holding her hand.
And kissing her head.

I'll sit here forever
If need be
Next to my wife
Till they let her free.

Until then
I'll let life unfold
And I shall sit right here
Putting my life
On hold.
I hate hospitals. I've been around them too much in my life
