About the Poem

This poem is short, but says it all. It is about the confusion in a relationship and giving more than you're getting out of it

Misunderstanding

why do you pretend like
I don't matter to you
when you're all that
matters to me?

I love this. I'm feeling restless, & I couldn't express myself better than this poet. I'm not in extreme pain, but my partner is. His Dad is very ill, cancer has metatasised all over his bones. & every few months, for the last 3 yrs, my boyfriend has to hear the doctors prognose only another 3 months for his Dad. Meanwhile, he locks me out of his world. He won't dicuss his grief, his fears, his plans. My own world is turning increasingly empty

Sheree
This poem is excellent. I just ended a relationship with someone who i love very much. His Mom won't allow us to talk anymore even though he is 18 and I am 19. I gave him everything he wanted and more, and in the end it all turned out to be for nothing. He was and still is all that matters to me, but until he realizes that he can make decisions for himself without his mom, he is never going to be truely happy. hopefully in the future he will see what he has lost. I just hope it isn't too late :)
