I don’t know if I’m strong enough to handle you. Not you, you, but, you in general. I don’t know if I can be the sounding board, you need. I’m unsure if I can withstand your rages. I’m uncertain if my caliber is up to yours. I don’t know if I can handle you.

I don’t know if I can weather you. If  can stand still and hold firm. I don’t know if I can be the one you deserve. I’m unsure of my own standing. Can I be as solid as I want? As solid as you deserve a wife to be?

I don’t know if I can be good for you. I’m not even convinced I am good for myself. How can I encourage you when my sails are barely open? I’m not even certain of what good means.

I don’t know. I don’t know what to do with you. Or even if I should do anything at all. I’m unsure of the next steps to take. How many steps away are you?
