Default Struggling Mono Poetry

Hi all, I just found these again.
These are my own poems, written in the first two weeks of becoming a V, and when I was overwhelmed by everything. I wrote them for myself to get my feelings out; my wife never saw them.
I don't know if they will be of interest to anyone; I don't feel that way any more. They are just a snapshot of feelings in a time of change.

You Are

You are their father
You said
Nobody else can be that.
You are the best
You should be proud.

You are my best friend
You said
That hasn't changed.
We have done so much
And its true we still laugh.

You are still my lover
You say
I still want you
You say
But only when I ask
And sometimes you look away
As if I ask too much.

You Broke

You broke my heart
The pieces you hold in your hands
Held together now only by
Your kiss
Your smile
Your words
Too fragile by far my heart
I never knew till now.
I want to trust
You know I do
To believe in you
And build us anew
Your love seems to run and hide
From me
When I need to see it most.
What am I to you?
I don't know anymore.
