Lost wishes

I wish I felt good enough. I wish I felt like you cared. I’m sorry that ever went away.

I wish I felt like I wasn’t so alone. Like I had someone on my side, helping me find my footing.

I wish things didn’t turn to shit when they did. And I wish last night wasn’t the kind of night to traumatize me all over again.

I wish I didn’t deserve all of it. Or, at least, I wish it didn’t happen to me this way, even if I did deserve it.

I miss having that feeling of safety. That one place, where things just might be okay. It has messed me up, not having that.

I’m not okay right now. I wish I was, but I’m not. I’ve been fighting back the floodgate of tears trying to escape for the past 24 hours. It’s a battle I’m sure to lose sooner or later.

I’m not okay. Last night, I wanted nothing more than to give up. I almost did.

He almost won.

I wish I had a safe place. A safe person.

Shit, I’d settle for even just one safe second.

I wish things were better. I wish I had therapy tomorrow instead of Tuesday. And I fucking wish I was strong enough to go in there and be as fucking real and vulnerable as I feel.

But if I did that, I can almost guarantee that I’d break down. I’m not strong enough to hold it in. Things are too heavy, too intense.

I’ve been in therapy with her for over 6 years. And I’ve never cried in there. Not once. And I don’t think now is the time.

Even though I wish it was.

But I don’t feel safe. I don’t think she cares. I feel so out of place and uncertain.

Everything is chaos and confusing and hurtful. He hurt me again last night. And I hate him for it.

I wish I felt safe. And I wish I felt secure.

I need someone. I need my safe place to be safe again.

Because I am not okay. Things are fucked up. They’re more fucked up than I can handle on my own.

And I wish I wasn’t so on my own right now.

I need you. I need someone.

I need there to be somewhere where I can exist in safety and security. And I’m so afraid that just doesn’t exist anymore.

  1. I’m so sorry. You don’t have to do this alone. Release it to Divine Love. This book is helping me, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles, by Marianne Williamson.
