Why do my words sound like ramblings and nags to you?
Every time I speak to you from the heart you accuse me of accusing you.
A simple, “hi honey, how was your day?” translates to you as “Who did you see?, Who did you talk to?”
Your guarding tones crush my soul as I try to decipher the difference between defensive guilt and defensive nature.
I realize that your past was filled with deplorable jealousy.
Is that what causes you to retaliate against me?
You ask me to trust you. I do.
You ask me to love you. I do.
I feel as though I am walking a constant tightrope around you.
What can I do to have you stand up for me? Stand up for us?
You will forever have my heart and my future.
It is up to you what you do with them.
Again, I am taking note from my wonderful hubby, who I do matter to, and linking up a song.
