let's talk about what the problem really is.
by Emily G Myers
you will tell me
or to run
or to medicate properly,
but i've done all those things
and i'll still never be enough for you.
Author's Note: because taking care of myself doesn't take care of you.

You certainly know how to put your cards on the table. Nicely put.

This brief little poem is quite profound when I think of relationships and their quirks. Thank you for also reminding me to check my own mirror.....

So few words, yet so much said. This is brutal and honest and I think alot of people can relate to it, as much as they may hate to admit it.

...emily, succinctness: a virtue. gal, you did all what the folks above said, a well-written treatise of relationship...clean your own house before you come over and tell me to clean mine!
