He Will Take It (Day 178)



You smile and then 
you sulk and then 
you are hungry and then
you resent me and then 

your mood swings 
wild and I 
try to manage this 
and worry 
and think
yes actually it is 
your fault 
i have too much 
right now

now here i am 
in fucking bed again
and what should 
i have been doing
taking care of myself?

and the shame 
i feel is pitch black dark
deep black so 
no one else will see it
then he will take it
then he will lay it out 
on me and
no one else will see it
