Who is wise? He that learns from everyone. Who is powerful? He that governs his passions. Who is rich? He that is content. Who is that? Nobody.
-Benjamin Franklin

Being with you

Drains all of my energy

And it takes everything I have
to hold on to my sanity

Every snide comment

Disguised as a petty joke

Reminds me of the monster in you

Hiding and Waiting

Until I do something to set it off

Nobody sees

But I see it all.

I know your insecurities

And you make me feel every emotion you feel

The creature in your heart

Is taking over

The man
I thought I knew

I was blinded

By the potential

Your smooth lines held.

But now

I see it all
