The Happy Couple

Go away from the pain but you can’t
Because it’s living inside and
All around every part of you
Trying to be loved deeply
Trying to be considered
Met with a feeling
That barely
Scratches

The surface of who we are as a couple
Relies on our ability to touch one
Another with our words and
When the words you speak
Leave me out of our
Equation because
You’re so busy
Making us
Believe

The truth is something that it’s not
Something you’ve made up for
Us to argue about and I don’t
Have anything left to fight
With I just want to be
Capable of enjoying
My day and I
Can’t even
Do that

With you asking me to answer questions
About yourself that you already know
The answers to, what is this?
Your attempt to make me
Lie to you so you don’t
Have to know the truth
Because the truth
Would set us free
But only if you
Accept what
It means
