Knowing your limits & the breaking point

"are we okay?"

by planetnic

You asked me if we were okay & I paused

Not because I don’t love you,

But because I am trying to protect my heart.

I am learning to be cautious.

I have gotten my hopes up & waited too damn long.

I made excuses I let promises be broken

& gave second chances ten times over

hoping things would change if I held on a little longer

This time, I am trying to realize what I need.

I am not going to drain myself to fill you up

I need someone to fight for me

as hard as I fight for them.

You are my home.

But I will not kick myself out to keep you warm any longer.

This is a wonderful poem. You clearly have done some critical thinking. If I may be so bold? It is just as important to set limits on other's behavior. Great post!!!!
