The roller coaster of your love

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This roller coaster of your love has had many ups and downs,
Three years we've fought the voices in your mind.
You've been away for up to three weeks at a time
Trying to get better, to heal, to overcome.
Each time you lost a little more - as have we.
But we have lost *you*.
Bits and pieces of you that you gave up along the way;
your laugh, your real smile. Not that fake one that says, "look, I'm okay".
You also lose things we can't touch - hope, trust, the will to keep trying.
And now you've gone farther than I ever imagined possible.
We've fought for you, for us, for three long years, but how do we come back from this?
How can I trust again? Can I? Should I?
I want to so badly. Am I to give up nearly thirteen years because of one horrible night?
Do you know how hard this is? Do you even care?
I have no idea how to do this.

Thanks for sharing. I love the finality and rhythm of the last line.
