Tombstones

Love should not feel confusing. Communicating how you feel towards your partner shouldn’t be constantly amusing. Ask yourself why you’re experiencing a roller coaster of different emotions. Is having tunnel vision worth experiencing low levels of oxytocin? You’re drowning in tidal waves of constant conflict. You’re free to roam the world as you please but you still feel trapped like a bird in a cage. He’s love bombing you to distract you from his outburst of rage. Pretending you’re happy on social media doesn’t dismiss what’s happening backstage. Why are you pouring in when you’re receiving nothing? You’re choking on verbal abuse that he’s shoving. If a relationship is with two people why do you feel so alone? I’m speaking for the names that are now written on tombstones.
