Relationship Poem

I have been married for almost 16 years. We have 2 children ages 16 and 12. We are both questioning our relationship after the death of his brother. He was only 41.

Soul Mates?

What ever happened to us when did we end?
How long ago did I consider you a friend?

The pain in my heart has turned into fear.
I can't imagine life without you near.

I have known all along I love you too much.
I smother you and long for your touch.

I try to hide how much you mean to me.
Like a caged bird you want to be free.

I should have had other friends and interests too!
My friends I left so I wouldn't be away from you.

I guess I just need that one best friend to confide.
That friend that no matter what would be by my side.

I should have known that you wouldn't be.
You would never be that friend to me.

I shouldn't have allowed it to go on this long.
When I look in your eyes I see I was wrong.

I tried to force you to think like I do.
I wasn't a very good friend to you!

  • I loved the poem, great job.
    though it did hurt to read it.
    you have my sympathies though, for I was only engaged when I left the one I loved...
    you were married...
    you must have had so much more pain than I...
    it kind of makes me feel selfish.
