Insanity ain’t my thing #Poetry #Relationships


Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is insane.

Insanity ain’t my thang!

But what must I do to remain sane?

Not to blame others for my choices.

Not to listen to the voices in my head…

Remember what he said!

I’ve tried to lead when I know I shouldn’t I wouldn’t let him win

I’d defend… my path

Not having done the math

I realize I’m not right…

Yet, I still fight for my opinion to be heard

Like a squeaking bird.

His patience with me I fear runs thin…

Again, I’m shown a new path to success…

Can I finally say yes?

Give up on doing it the way I know…

Stop just being an average Joe!

Ready or not here I come.

I’d like some of the future he talked about.

No doubt… in my mind

I’m going in blind.

So, he’ll do what he does best

I expect nothing less.

He’ll be the alpha male

And I’ll stop setting us up to fail.

Seems simple, eh?

Temper-Tantrums for Adults #poetry #relationships

A snippy comment here
A snide reply there
We seriously couldn’t make a better or worst pair

I dare…
To tell the truth
He’d throw up things from our youth

I threw daggers right back
It became a full on attack

He’d had enough
And he called my bluff

He said, “I’ve let you push and push, and now I’m done. Fix your attitude.”

He said, “You’re being a dick”
I stuck my tongue out at him with a flick!

That’s when I finally laughed
How could I be so daft?

I was being a fucking child!
Believe me that’s putting it mild

I’ve since “fixed my attitude” and stopped fearing I’m not enough
It was some heavy stuff.

Take my advice… Don’t do what I did
It makes you look like a bratty kid!

Just sayin…
