I feel helpless and powerless
Watching your marriage fall apart;
You are starting to avoid him,
As he is avoiding you.
“You’re ungentle, irritable
and unreasonable,” he says;
You retort he’s worse than that.
He says you are roasting yourself,
In a self-imposed tragedy;
You belie his laidback lifestyle
And lackadaisical attitude.
Will you both find a middle ground,
Or will matters just execrate
Until there is total chaos,
Or when everything breaks down?
