It’s Complicated

 

Are you feeling trapped?

Could you live like this for ever?

A lie is a lie;

Pain is pain.

Why do you live with his deceits?

And go back to being passive?

He may change,

or he may not change;

but something has to change.

You can’t change him;

you can only change yourself –

So, will you?

For all his apologies and promises,

all his apparently sincere remorse,

the wound would be deeper next time;

and, inside you, you would feel

cold and dead and numb.

You are only attempting

to piece back together

the shattered fragments

of trust

for the hundreth time.

Life is complicated

enough right now.
