You held me back.
Because you were lost,
you tried to keep me lost
as well.
You didn't know that what I learned
could have helped us both.
Marriage...a supposed equal effort
was not.
I spent my time trying to save you,
while no one was trying to save me.
And I died just a little
every day.
All I wanted was to be me;
to follow my heart, my dreams,
my instincts,
wherever life was leading...
But I was not allowed.
You would not let me.
I had to commit life
as though it were
a crime.
How sad.
And now,
no one may ever get the chance
to support me with that, again,
because you betrayed my trusting heart.
