Venting Today

Words that bounce off of his chest.
I would have preferred that it permeated through skin and skull.
I would have preferred that it saturated his thought process.
Words that reach a deaf ear.
I ask questions that are heard when turned towards me.
His definitions are always on point if they were to incriminate me.
They change when they point the finger back at him.
I don't want to lay blame for the sole purpose of pointing the finger.
I want conviction to sink in.
I want change to ensue.
This doesn't feel like the talk that will inspire change.
This doesn't seem like it is effective at all.
So I pretend as if I just needed to vent.
I pretend as if I weren't looking for a change.or a positive reaction.
I pretend it doesn't hurt that you act like you don't know how to make things right
I pretend it doesn't hurt that you haven't made the changes that we discussed.
I know that if I made you do it, I would be mad because you didn't want to
And I'm mad now because you aren't making the changes that we discussed.
You want to talk...can't stop talking about getting the business off the ground.
Sometimes I can be attentive, sometimes I just have to walk away.

Same shoe walking the same route ..

So true... And tiring to have things alway turned around so that you are the one at fault. Hang in there and you truly have a gift of writing honest inspiring poems.

Hugs honey....
