You Are Everything But...

"I'm in a bad mood".

I can feel the hurricane coming
and I will be in it's treacherous path

Not even a minute
and all of my failures
are lined up for discussion

But I have nothing to say
accustomed to such blasts
over these past eleven years

The wedding ring that I never gave
a haunting reminder
that my actions are offensive
and I am leading us to a path of unhappiness

There are few rewards to my companionship
and I often pray that I should be enough

We built this home together
and yet these fractures keep happening

It takes all my might some days
to wear the brave face for our little girl
when I just want to sob
under this pressure
that one thing would make it all better
that I just can't seem to pull together

So easily we glide into love
programmed that it will be a certain way
only to learn that the enchantment can dull
the further we seclude from each other

Maybe, I have fucked it all up.

Maybe it's simply a bad mood
that's been transferred.

And maybe I am just an asshole.
