Emotional Blackmail

Another drunken night
Another night of craziness
Another time reminded
That ignorance is bliss

It’s only been three months
But I know it won’t last
I once again try to tell you
That you’ll be put in my past

Another psychotic reaction
Another suicide attempt
Another traumatic experience
To add to my contempt

Threats to jump off a bridge
And razor blades have been tried
I can’t count all the ways
That you have almost died

I pin you to the bed
To prevent this devastation
You seem to calm down eventually
And exude relaxation

A trip to bathroom
Gives me the chills
It was all the time needed
To consume a bottle of pills

Tears flow freely
Paralyzed with fear
You smile sadly
You shed a single tear

You tell me not to worry
That my problems will end
In the morning you’ll be gone
But my heart will never mend

We both wake in the morning
I promise to stay
Bittersweet memories
Of what happened that day

Things turned out
To be for the best
Because we had twins
Who would’ve guessed?

The scars remain
The cuts ran deep
Many painful memories
For this mind to keep

  3. Very cathartic. I can feel your pain and frustration. Very relatable. :(
