Cycles
I want out

Conflict to threats
Make-up period

Slow build-up of
Passive aggression,
Disrespect,
Lack of trust,
Criticism and judgment thru actions,
Stubbornness that wears me out to giving in to his way,

I reach a limit and speak out,
Outbursts, yelling, vocal criticism,
Judgments.

I can turn us back to peace
But I’m tired…
Of the never-ending cycle.

My numbness to makeup period –
Interrupts. The cycle can end.

Cycles
Exhaustion
Numb.
I want out
