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

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
