You can look at this as married or just life in itself...
I once knew a couple like this...


Broken

 

No matter what you do in life
Nothing seems good enough
Always being told you can't do it
Whatever you do is always wrong


  You're not good enough 
  You're not going anywhere
  You're not going to amount to anything
  Your life is stuck in a rut


Your spouse puts you down
Daylight to dark
Arguing when you wake up
Arguing when you go to bed


  Always trying your best
  But your best isn't good enough
  Finally one day you just give up
  Not caring about anything


Or what happens to you in life
Realizing one day
I've finally been
Broken~

Michael~

This poem is very deep, honest, and
just mind blowing. Your very honest its very true
What your words captured Always negative
And always telling that person your a nobody
You will never amount to anything in life
Life is to short if there's no love they should go
Their separate ways!!
Excellent message within this great write!!
Love And Peace To You Always..Morning Star

"Your not good enough
Your not going anywhere
Your not going to amount to anything"

In these verses, you mean to write "you're." I know these sentiments that you share, Michael. Help me as well when I make typos, please. I always appreciate it. Love and peace to you,

Regis

Although we may love a person, a negative relationship doesn't do anyone any good. Best for both parties to go their own way. Life is too short and we deserve to be happy.

Love & Light always and in all ways,

It is like reading what my mother alway said.
She bend me, but couldn't broken my spirit.
Well said my friend, well said.

when the spirit breaks down, the heart and soul are torn into shreds ... it's the role of a poet, through words and actions, to put it all together again ...

You described well the dance of two people in an abusive relationship.

Broken to move on towards wholeness...
A realistic write Michael, about oh too many lives in the habit pattern of negativity!
Thanks for sharing.
Love, Suzie :-D

It can be short lived as well. Broken means apart. Put it back together. A little soul glue works wonders Michael.

Geez oh man, no one should live like that, Michael -- a very powerful poem describing an all-to-common existence. I do hope it isn't a personal account! Well done.
Love & a hug,

This poem spells negativity with capitol letters, and anyone living
like this is in misery.Very sad, but excellent poem Michael! Eileen

Sad write, but a write that describes so many today...for there seems to be so much dispair and bitterness in our world today, marriages falling apart, families disolving before our very eyes...sad write, but well written my friend!
Blessings,

Michael,

I certainly hope this isn't based on reality, but have a feeling it is. Words can hurt as much as fists, but leave deeper scars...a poignant, heartbreaking write.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

I know how this feels--went through it myself.
