MEMORY LAPSE

 

You were pissed off

even though

I hadn’t said

anything wrong

 

and it began

to dawn on me

that you weren’t 

pissed off at

what I had said

 

you were pissed off

at something

I hadn’t said.

 

Problem is,

it’s hard enough

for me to remember

all those things

that I actually said

 

It’s damn near impossible

to remember

all the things

that I haven’t said.

 

I just wish

I could find a way

to make you understand.

Reading this was eerie

Reading this was eerie because it describes so well one of the major problems my first sweetheart and I ebcountered, causing her to end the relationship---an emotional devestation that lasted sixteen years.

Yes.  From Jan 9th of 1978  thr -ough December 18 of 1992, her absence left a gap in my life that not even my first marriage could fill.  Then I met the woman who became my second wife, and the gap closed in a matter of days.  It is still a huge scar, but no longer seeps tears or unbound emotions.

time heals all wounds but occasionally a few scars remain.  Glad you survived and emerged stronger (eventually)

Wow

I really like the way that you wrote this 

Its so relatable

And i could feel the frustration 

Along with a misinterpretation 

As if i was actually watching the conversation

Turn into an argument

Well written.

O.K.

I hope I was supposed to laugh out loud, because I'm now down to a strong chuckle mixed with some snorting and snickers. Good job! - slc
