A peom by Mickie500

Faithful (Tears)

My tears are faithful

They never leave me wanting

Whenever I summon them

They come prepared

They fill Up my eyes

And if it is safe, they sprint down my face In a maddening rush

Gather at my chin

then they leap off

and land gently on my blouse

My tears are dependable

They lie in wait

Ready to release me

(If only for a moment)

Sometimes they summon

My gut to engage

if they need the reinforcement of sound

that can only come from the pit of my stomach

My tears are created in my gut and yet they have my back

Sometimes they take center stage and silence everything In my body

They subpoena my nerves, cells, and bones

And like a conductor they hold everything in suspension

Until they decide to move in silence

And they gently cascade from my eyes

so tender, that sometimes

I’m unaware that they have been there for me

That they have been delivering me from a silent pain that needed to be liberated

My tears never run out

They remain

in joy and pain

They don’t question- they sequester

they don’t ponder- they don’t fester

They don’t resent- they present

They don’t fluctuate-they alleviate

They don’t switch up- they show up

every time

They are faithful

The thing is, I know I’d be ok without him. It’s the being ok WITH him that is taking work....

You don't have to like your boundaries. You just have to set and enforce them.

From HouseOfPlane:

...we all live an arranged marriage. In my case, it was arranged by two hormone-fueled 20-somethings who had no clue about anything.

From Karmafan re: a thread on profound loneliness.

Boom 💥!!

Every day I think of re-joining a dating app, to numb the pain, the hollowness, but then I remember why I am doing this and I push through. Because I want to get to a place of self-love, where a relationship feels like a choice and not a last chance saloon.

From Buffer

Most of all she will expect you to change for her unicorn fart land mind palace.

I've been laughing out loud for a while just trying to visualize what this palace might look like and all the while feeling certain that NTV might have the blue prints.

From HeHadADoubleLife

I think many of us have come to find out that our spouses who we thought were real, authentic, self-actualized people were not much more than a bunch of maladaptive coping mechanisms stacked on top of each other wearing a trench coat

From Jorge, and it doesn't matter what thread it comes from, because it fits in multitudes of contexts:

I appreciate the fact that she had a rough childhood but it shouldn't come at the expense of you having a rough adulthood.

You can bullshit yourself, you can bullshit your OW, and your can bullshit your wife, but you have to wake up pretty early in the morning to bullshit SI.

Thank you Bluerthanblue

From gmc94

Mowing the lawn can become it's own form of therapy... think of the grass as tiny cheater penises you are cutting off!

A "perfect marriage" is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.

With God ALL things are possible (Matthew 19:26)

I AM happy again...It CAN happen!!!

From respect comes great love...sassylee
