Poem: The Me that hurts you

Updated on December 23, 2010

Couple Fighting

Source

I'm still going thru a difficult season in my marriage with my wife. I often feel that the way I am consistently hurts my wife. Therefore it is impossible for me to be "me" without hurting her. Whether I am being sarcastic, attempting to be funny, or simply being the absent minded person I am, the end result is the same. To make matters worse, I am a horrible verbal communicator. Especially at communicating my emotions. The only way I am able to be 100% true is thru my creative writings.  I wrote this song in one take as I wanted to express all the racing thoughts at the time.


The Me that hurts you

12/23/2010

[I]

Oh when

Oh when did our love drift and go away,

Was it apathy that took its place

A smile, a loving glance laced with I love you

Now memories suffocated by excuse


[PRE]

Will I ever see this place

Will I vacate this dark space

A place that keeps me from you now

Afraid cause I don't know how


[CHORUS]

How do I change me for you ....

How can I try to show you ....

Intentions were always to love you ....

But I can't bear to let me .... hurt you


[II}

Oh when

Oh when did I stop hearing your soft sweet voice

Frustrated indifference, I made my choice

(and) I just stopped caring instead of being true

To the words I promised when we joined from two


[PRE]

Will I ever see this place

Will I vacate this dark space

A place that keeps me from you now

Afraid cause I don't know how


[CHORUS]

How do I change me for you ....

How can I try to show you ....

Intentions were always to love you ....

But I can't bear to let me .... hurt you


[BRIDGE]

How do I stop me

How do I fix me

To make you see me

To help you forgive me


[CHORUS]

How do I change me for you ....

How can I try to show you ....

Intentions were always to love you ....

But I can't bear to let me .... hurt you
