Just sitting here feeling so blue
I really just want to get thro to you
The feelings I tell you arent just for show
Its everything I really need you to know
Without communication we will never grow
You mean the world to me even tho you feel it doesn't show
It surely kills me to know I hurt you inside
I never mean for my words to run throughout you burning you alive
All I ever want for you is to strive
Can I do this and swallow my pride
I do my best to just keep you by my side
Just know that it kills me inside but still I'll try

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on October 25, 2019:
Its difficult sometimes to communicate with the people we love..it's like they don't understand your words.
Sometimes actions speak louder. Maybe try to be thankful for little things they do and voice it outloud. Most people love to know you are proud of them.
Think of yourself, build a life for you so you won't feel alone if they are silent.

You can sense the struggle and inner turmoil in this thought provoking poem.
