What does it mean
To be in a
And also have
A life for yourself?

What if being
A support to your partner
Means needing
Emotional support
For yourself?

Do we put this
On a shelf
Table it
Until the next one
Comes along?

Tell a different fairytale
To ourselves
Dragons and witches
Assholes and bitches
To one another
Failed attempts
At interdependence

Just like

Self imposed handcuffs
We can’t
Find our
Way out of
But then…

What if
We can be
Singular together
Then we
Could still enjoy
What it means
To be a lot less mean
To one another

Find the keys

Less strained
We have
More love gained
From the freedom
Of extenuating
Back breaking

Look for each other
In between
No expectations
A glass of champagne
And an exit
From pain

Like good friends laughing
Every night
In sweet refrain
