"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Beneath the surface


…Beneath the surface… that’s how you made me feel so many years. I loved you, I wanted us to grow, to make something out of this life, yet you have always drained me.
Every day I struggled to understand you, but every single day you demanded more and more, turning me from a strong beautiful woman into a sad pathetic shadow…
You should have loved me for what I was, you should have cared, without projecting your frustrations and anger on me.
Beneath the surface you kept me for so long… Stay there on your own. Now I am free.


100 words + …Beneath the surface…

    • This is a real description of life. Whoever lives in such a relationship should think of defending himself, never harming himself and stepping away from the person that drains them.
      My friend, you are the most important person in your life. Whoever does not love, protect and respect you, does not deserve you. Keep this in mind.
      Many thanks for reading and for your comment.
      Take care, be well, be blessed and safe.

  5. Could so relate to the sentiments of this piece …. a woman lost under the confines of a relationship going nowhere.

  8. haunting and yet I can relate…often we yearn so much for things to be “right” that we forget we are not breathing our own air, but the needs and desires of another… may all be well for you.
