Trying To Understand - Poem by Laura Fullerton

I am trying to understand why you won't look at me
I am trying to understand why you won't kiss me
When everything seems just fine
I find you in the bathroom, wounding with a knife

And I stand there motionless, hoping the sky, which has become all dark, will return back to it's natural colour.
You have changed in a way, which I cannot explain
Please just look at me and maybe I can feel your pain
There shouldn't be this much shame, don't blame yourself for not feeling the same

I can't understand you, but at least I am trying...
