A single tear in my eye
does not mean I will break down and cry
so please don't whisper so I cant hear
being kept in the dark is my biggest fear
tell me the truth I need to know
if you keep these secrets I will go
I don't need your cotton wool lies
so don't hide me in your stupid disguise
let me taste the world outside
or is it my freedom you cant abide
does the thought of me feeling life scare you to death
are you worried I will want more with every breath
no more of your nasty lies
tonight I stare at the stars in the sky
and if I fall and I know I will fall
I will dust off my knees and again stand tall
so don't tell me the world is bad
its not the worlds fault you are sad
the oceans so pure and blue
did not a thing to hurt you
the sparkling stars in the sky
did not make you have to lie
the soft grass I long to feel
did not make you this unreal
you may think you know what is best
but I only get one shot at life and I'm going to give it my best
so close your eyes if you must
but living life is my idea of lust
my world is an amazing place to be
at last I can now feel free

Dear Jenna, this plight sounds lots like the situation my niece is going through. She's been with this guy half her life, and she's only 32! He's so controlling, sabotaging her every move. And yeah, I think it is out of fear on his part. I have been advising her for years to move forward. She loves him, but longs for the freedom every young woman deserves. So finally she got a job! She told him he was not going to mess this one up for her. (In the past, she'd get a job and within days, he'd make her feel so guilty she'd quit.) No MORE, and guess what? It's working. It comes in little steps that seem BIG to the person making the moves. But the impact is worth the stress. She used to say she avoided confrontations with him because she didn't want to hear his mouth yapping at her. I told her to put her hands over her ears and WALK away! She's doing it Jenna, and they are getting along much better.

Just my two cents,
Babs ~

AWESOME poem Jenna, it's difficult to be in a relationship when there is one trying to control the other, I WAS in a relationship like this, till one day I packed up and moved out, I was living my life, going places and not being being near the phone when he called.
There are times when one has to "left up their wings and fly." Like Like Like a Star @ heaven

Babs, that's great news about your niece, I hope all continues to go well with her, and the family...my best to her.
