The pain you cause me is impalpable. I can’t begin to describe the inner anguish you stir when you tell me I’m not good enough. I’m never good enough for you. I’m always trying to prove myself, to be better than I was the day before. It’s never enough. You always unearth another flaw; another inconsistency woven into my fabric.
Well, thanks to you, I’m unravelling.
Free me for a moment, tormented mind, from your unforgiving shackles. Free me of your own impossible expectations and of others’.
You are only one woman, you can’t take on the world.
