I like it and it makes sense to me. I’d rather see “cause” or “because” instead of “cuz”. Just seeing it written looks better in my opinion. But otherwise great work!

Makes sense. I started writing at work so had to write it down fast. Thanks for the input. And thanks for reading it.

I liked it. I enjoy a bit of poetry but not as much as reading someone’s heart.

I like it. The repetition of “I’m tired of” speaks to me (I’ve been there too). I agree with the “cuz” to “because” comment above. Other than that I liked it!

It’s good that you’ve been able to express so many feelings here, so much ache and pain.
I think you might consider reducing the repetition “I’m tired…” so it could start a series of 5 or 6

What do you think?

“own that shit my friend”
Yes! So right!

Thanks thats kind of what it started evolving into. Definitely have a lot more work to do on it

Are you doing anything to make these situations that are making you tired different for yourself?

I like that idea. I’m going to try it out and see how it works.

Most of them yes. Some of them like the situation with my wife I can only do so much on my own. She doesn’t see there is a deeper problem than what’s on the surface. If that makes sense to you.

I am super excited that patrons and people with time in sobriety have read this and understand where I’m coming from. People in my very small circle of family and friends say I need to consider writing on a regular basis. I think I hold myself back from that because I personally feel like I’ve got nothing if interest to say. Maybe after seeing these replies i couldn’t be more wrong.

Exactly! Keep creating, keep experimenting. You’ll be glad you did :innocent:
