    ON THE EDGE
    we are on a precipice
    ready to fall
    one wrong move
    and we lose all
    of this fragile relationship
    for what it’s worth
    we are tumbling down
    towards the earth
    wher we’ll land wit a bump
    if we don’t take care
    because soon you’ll turn round
    and i wont be there.

    Beautiful poem Gran.
    Do jump off the cliff, but arm yourself with a parachute, let him jump from it without one.
    In concrete terms that means, make your exit plans without him knowing anything about it and go get your freedom whilst he rots in his own hell.
    Keep posting & take good care of yourself 💕

    thank you all for your comments, i wrote that poem at a low point, my marriage can get very difficult but i probably wont leave him after all this time, we are now at the final stages of life and i guess i just hope i can have a few healthy years without him. i believe he is mentally ill, not evil.self love i am so sorry about your loss, i too have lost a treasured child to suicide and understand your pain lots of love to everyone love gran x*x

    thank you hope life and joy, the funny thing is that i feel like a prisoner who was innocent but jailed for over 2 life sentances, and am now looking at the possibility of living a life by myself, my husband is older than me but there are no guarantees of who goes 1st, we had a large family but losing our youngest child in their 20s devestated our family and i worry about the mental health of them all. in some weird way not living my life seems to have kept me young, though i wouldnt advise anyone to live like that. i am still living in hope for my life to start there are so many things i want to acheive, so many things i want to do for the child who couldnt finish what they started, they were so talented and amazing and loved.i love your name by the way. love gran xx
