How depression can affect a relationship

I watch you from my red raw eyes,
sadness within me, myself and I,
large purple tear drops i cry.
you draw in a breath, a heavy sigh.

i put each hand over one ear,
all in attempt that i will not hear,
the sadness, it's not me it does sear,
no, because it is for your life i fear.

I don't remember the last time i saw you smile,
i want it so bad, even just for a while,
i feel were stranded on a never ending mile,
i feel we are put together like a bad style,

I am mostly happy, and mostly your sad,
myself for ommiting good vibes, i feel bad,
i try to be happy, but with you like this i can't be glad
i want our relationship to develop, even just a tad.

you in yourslef, you are always glum,
i can see in your face that inside you are numb
i wan to us to be close, i want that time to come,
please i want you back, i really love you mum!

Heart-breaking... I thought throughout the poem that it's another love poem, but the ending is just out-of-the-herd... Watch out for spelling mistakes my friend. You misspell you're to your, we're to were... Watch out... Keep writing. It's a good poem.

This is a very emotional poem with great flow of words and good rhyming. There are a few typos. I like it.

you should give this to your mom. it couldn't help but make her smile. when pointed out, you really should go back and fix your typos. they're distracting and take a little away from your poem. your first stanza is fantastic, and there's nothing more important than a strong ending, which you nailed. might i suggest rhyming every other line? it will soften up your piece. you seem to be stretching so hard to find a way to rhyme the next line that sacrafice the line's flow. you have the talent to give it a try.
