100 Word Challenge: Give

Give Me Strength

It’s not easy hanging out with her.
She looks at life through the wrong end of the telescope,
And whatever what I do, it’s wrong.

Friendly chit chat is a challenge.
She hears everything from deep underwater,
No matter what I say, it’s garbled.

I have so much trouble with the eggshells.
No matter how gingerly I walk with her,
I always seem to break some.

Just when I think I’ve gotten the hang of it,
And the relationship is finally good, I say or do something “wrong,”
And poof - it’s right back to square one.

Give me strength.


Thoughts? I would love to hear from you.
