When You're Weary

MichaelS36

131 views

And I am … weary that is. 

There are times I just want peace, selfishly for myself. Fighting tim's depression, mood swings and self-loathing, wears me out, it tires me and breaks my heart. And today when I bent to pick up his ART meds, he no longer wants to take … today I wondered why I continue. That scared me, that question, because never before have I asked it.

Valentine's Day is the worst day of the year, for him and so for me.  It brings memories to my sweet husband, things, time and people that are lost to him. The lack, leaves holes and dark empty spaces no one and nothing can fill. 

I beg him to take his meds, remind him today is only one day and it will pass … that tomorrow will be a better day.  he takes them, but I can see the disappointment  in his eyes as that lie passes my lips.

And I wonder for how much longer I can do this?  How much longer will he bear what he does before he chooses to stop his meds?  

And I give myself a shake and go to shower. It's Friday and we have an appointment to keep.

      Love
      when you see the smile from someone feeling the same.
      or the warmth in your chest from the mention of a name.
      Love
      your first thought in the beginning of a day,
      and the last thing you feel when you're hitting the hay.
      Love
      when every moment you're waiting you seem to ache,
      so afraid that from this dream you'll wake.
      Love
      the feeling so strong time seize to exist
      Yet even those moments blow away like mist.
      Love
      filling you up 'till you feel so strong,
      yet so small that you feel you'll do everything wrong
      Love
      when the smallest thing can send you into a rut,
      yet the same thing will pull you back up.
      Love
      when you warm up by the mention of a name
      knowing by their smile that they feel the same.

      i count every hour 
      every minute
      every second
      to see your face
      to touch your hand
      to feel your skin
      to see your delighted eyes
      to see your smile:)
      for just a second...
      i just want to die after these 
      i want to take my last breath from your smell
      iwant to take my last look of your face
      i want to have my last touch of your skin
      i want to kiss your hand while dying,having your hand in my fist
      just
      let me die slowly...
      concentrated in your eyes....
      yes, i want this.

      Better late than never might be the motto hanging over the entrance ...  Oh well ... As the story continues to progress, maybe there'll be things you'd like to chat about, complain, moan. Whatever. 
       
      First though, I've an announcement about Tony and Geoff, and the next few months. As a serial which is written as it's being posted, T&G needs discipline as well as enjoyment on my part. Over the past couple of episodes, that discipline has felt more like a constraint, something that holds me back from writing other things. So the next chapter, 17, about the meal, will be the last for a short while. It will finish Part 1 of Soul Music. I love the characters and I have plenty left to do with them, but I need a break. Both to do other things, and to recharge that part of my creative battery. I expect Geoff to be having that conversation with his mother sometime in July, probably as the opening chapter of Part 2. Sorry to keep you hanging on that one, but the meal seemed the only point at which I could call a temporary halt. @Parker Owens as my editor, and the person with the most invested in the story after me, has agreed with my decision. 
       
      So, there it is. It will allow me to write more for GA - about Eric, amongst others, and another longish entry for the next anthology. In the meantime, there is one more chapter to write (and it may well turn out to be long one  ). I hope you've enjoyed it so far and that you'll rejoin me when I announce the start of Part 2 in this thread.
