Your Word -------------------------------------------
My words come across to you as a foreign language.
The words that spew out of my mouth reach your ears and before I know it
They have transformed turned into something drastically different
So, here we are husband and wife
Yet, I am nothing but an annoying buzzing sound within your ear canal.
You have nothing but empty promises and consequences to actions in which you always seem to smoothly avoid
Your word means nothing to me ... itís nothing but a cloud of smoke covering up the truth
The truth being...
Your wife cannot rely on you
Take your word on serious matters
Believe you when you say things will get done
it is good that i read this.
some times i worry that i am the only person who gets frustrated about the lack of hearing ability of my husband.
we've been married two and a half years and for some reason [prolly hollywood] i think we should be all laughs and romance and quirky silliness but instead there have been so many moments where i get upset and he says im sorry and asks me to stop crying so i do only to repeat the progression a couple of weeks later.
i am quite sure we speak on different frequencies to which husbands listen. i dont think they go out of their way to not listen they just dont hear whats going on behind the 'constant nagging'...
can you come dry the dishes = i want to spend time with you but get stuff done around the house too
but all he hears is stop watching tv already...
as for his word meaning nothing...
my husband is from a different culture to me. in his culture a mans word is everything. after having heard him say im sorry im sorry im sorry i have no doubt that he is sorry but i dont think he realises im sorry means i wont do it anymore...
words need to be backed up with action. especially if those words have been heard too many times before... yeah?
You've captured what it is to be in a relationship with an unreliable partner so very well. I too have had these feelings over and over again. It is so frustrating, and yet anytime you say something about it, you sound like a nag and end up feeling bad yourself for turning into someone that you swore you would never be.
