Battle

Shards of glass
searing my soul
Biting emotions
commence overflow

A mind full of turmoil
rushing this way
Am I going to make it through,
even through, just one day?

Questions cloud my mind
Still, no answers can I find
Has it been destroyed?
Has the ammunition been deployed?
Is a battle on it's way,
Do you think it will it be today?
Will I have to run for cover
From the one I call my lover?

Flowers use to bloom,
Sunshine filled the room

Now...
Acerbity fills the air
Spreading anger here, then there
Resentment is everywhere

Battle lines are drawn
And the love has long been gone.

So beautifully written Sam,and i agree with Auspicious give it some time and it will work out one way or the other,either way you can start to live your life again. I hope you are feeling better today, you are in my prayers every night.

Thank You Whopper :) Have a great day!

Your verse is beautiful.



You need to find a resource without emotional ties to either of you (marriage counselor, pastor, etc.) to help you reestablish and maintain communication. You each need first to become aware of each others needs and second to take action to meet those needs.



My wife certainly deserves most of the credit for keeping us together. Her patience and forbearance were monumental. She was primarily responsible for the church centered activities we share. She made it a point to share my interest in railroads. She helped us through the small obstacles that might have destroyed our marriage. My male ego made it difficult to accept her point of view, especially when I knew in my heart that she was right. She made it a point to be seductive and interesting for me but she frequently required some guidance to learn what was most effective. We made an early decision to do as much as possible as a couple. We always held hands in public. She chose to be a homemaker rather than a career woman. That diminished our income but it meant that there were only demands from one career straining our marriage. It meant that there would be time when we were both free to spend with one another.



The really big and important obstacles to our marriage were never a problem. It was easy for each of us to give 100% of our effort to overcome them. The most strain came from trivial obstacles. These should be the easiest to overcome but in many cases we invest our egos in these foolish positions. You both need to find someone who can help you sort out your important differences from the unimportant ones. Try to rediscover what it was that attracted you to each other in the first place; you may find in them the basis for continuing love and understanding.



I am so thankful that my wife was there for me when I finally was in a position in which I really needed her. It was easy for me to return the favor when those roles were reversed. I love her and I will always be there for her so long as I am physically and mentally able. I wish the same for you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond with such helpful info :) I agree with this statement that you said, "These should be the easiest to overcome but in many cases we invest our egos in these foolish positions" I think this is a big part of our issues.
Thanks again for your help; I am happy that you and your wife are still together :)

What a powerful and evocative description of your emotional pain! I am so sorry you are experiencing this. I hope you find peace soon.

Thank U Perseverer, love your name btw :) Does anyone ever find true "peace" though? I often wonder?

Sam, you can win. Just be understanding, and give it some time.
