A space in which the world is not.

Your stuck in the sticky trap of personal time
saving a few hours for yourself
and slipping within exhaustion.
Marriage is giving yourself
and breaking away from that part
the part in which defines an individual.
Time is fading
exhaustion it overwhelms
and as your lover
I myself forget to take time
to hold you
to tell you I love you.
Simple words to speak
and when I speak them
I choose times in which
they’re not always spoken for free
because I use them during arguments
which is unfair to you.
I’ll try to pay better attention
to your pain
to your personal space
to your feelings
and when you say
I don’t want to talk about it
I should respect that
rather than fall within patterns
because I fear it means
you rather not hear my thoughts.
I know the truth
that you want a space
in which the world is not
and I’ll try better
to answer that prayer.

Thanks for reading.
