Something Has To Give

No intimacy anymore what does that mean?
I feel lonely, depressed with no self esteem.
Whatever happened, from lover to flat mate?
I've been patient so long, how long can I wait?

I respect your wishes, but I can't figure it out.
I'm left frustrated, confused full of self doubt.
I have been faithful and loyal, I will to the end.
But I just don't understand, why lover to friend?

Hard words to write, not sure if I should share.
But I think I'm looking for some help out there.
What's not important to you, seems it is to me.
How much longer can we let our feelings be?

I feel undesirable, embarrassed, tired and low.
I hate to bring it up, because it annoys you so.
So my emotions build up, this is no way to live.
I still love you loads...but something has to give.

Heartbreaking poem that is more common than you may realize. Growing apart often happens slowly over the years without much warning. Thankfully, we have writing as a release. Write on! 🖤
