tilt

everything feels wrong.
our world
has tipped off its axis.
we push and pull in opposite directions,
forgetting we're on the same side.

what we thought was real
exploded
what we knew was real
disappeared
our guides have been taken away,
and it's hard to think
with our hearts torn out.

I would pull our world back
singlehandedly
but I'd rather do it
with you.

for the man I cherish,
on the occasion of my most recent mental breakdown

((((hugs))))

What a blessing, though, that Stu and you have such a solid foundation. Even the minor "earthquakes" won't crumble your family.

Stu said...

I'm not planning on being anywhere else.

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Awwww, Stu is such a sweet man! Steph, I'm willing to bet he was expecting/planning on the mental implosions, knowing you are NOT a good (long-term, ok???) patient. It could not have been much of a shock for him :) ♥

Lisa said...

I love you and Stu equally.

Hugs, precious.

Nice. Maybe I'll try writing a poem the next time my husband has to endure one of my mental breakdowns.
