My wife, Stephanie, who blogs at Dead and Domestic, has written and published a few poems over the last week that deal with some struggles that are very real to her, and I believe are very real to many other people. If you have a chance to check them out I’m sure she would appreciate it. They are very honest and, in my unprofessional opinion, extremely well written. I have posted the links below with an excerpt from each.
You know why I’ve come.
My ball and chain
And My freedom.
They tell me that i’m worthless
I have nothing left to give
They ask me why i try so hard
to sleep, to breath, to live?
I see the saddness in your eyes
your confusion grows and grows
but you understand the hurt i feel
is more than anybody knows
