I Will Not Let You



Living with mental illness and depression is difficult. Having a partner who suffers, is also challenging, but I will not let him down.  I am proud of him and he is worth all my love and effort. 




I watch the ghosts of your past

Swamp and overwhelm you

Though I intervene, too often

Their pull is greater than my power

But always I will be your tether

And safety net,

I will not let you fall

I hope you find someone also.

Beautifully written words, Mike, but it’s the thoughts and actions these words speak of that resonate within me. 


Thank you, Reader.
