The danger of you being in this state
makes me weep with fear and sorrow
again you have been distressed outside
and likely it will happen tomorrow.
I asked you to seek medical advice
but you shrug your shoulders with contempt
uninterested in being asked to go
wallowing in your own torment.
We have never fulfilled the goal we had
when we met many years ago
at first we were happy, content
for many years in a row.
But now I need to detach from you
as I'm brought down to this state
if no one helps to resolve our woes
we will be meeting at the gates!
It is like living with two people, one I do not know
the other is dark and despairing
listening to you cry in the middle of the night
makes me feel cold and uncaring.
I will watch over you in your hour of need
care for you when your at a low ebb
but you need to agree to help yourself
and we both will escape the fine web.
This is a poem about people who suffer from split personality, this is from the partners point of view, when the other person cannot or will not recognize they have an issue,what they have to realize is, with help they can lead normal lives before they destroy everything they have or have built in the years.I know someone similar to this poem and I am sure many of you will know someone too.
Do you know anyone who has suffered from this, how did they cope?
