Take a hold of me.

The insanity was taking over her.
Only wanting her way, she cried at the fact there was nothing she could do.
She cried at the fact she was stuck.

There was no more joy in her life, no more reason to keep going. She wanted to leave, wanted to run away to a foreign country and marry a man who was not her current husband.
But she couldn't.

She was being held back by a force stronger than her own desperateness. She couldn't leave her daughters, and no matter how sick she was of her husband, she couldn't leave him either. This feeling had been taking over her for along time, she used to think that as the kids grew older, the less dependent they would become, and then she would be able to leave. It was true about her kids, but it was the opposite for her husband. He clung to her like a child refusing to let go of his hasty mothers hand.

It was true, she was stuck.

This is exactly how my dad feels.
