Who hasn’t lived this scenario? I think as humans we are destined to experience heartaches, how we survive them determines our future.
You are no longer my beloved
You are not my adversary
You still produce strong feelings
I am still grappling with them
My mind and heart unsettled
The solution remains hidden
What is it we are now?
No definition seems to exist

I simply loved the raw truth of a woman’s strength in this piece. It reminds me of the current cultural motto “Nevertheless, we persist!” RAWR!! And the title – awesome! Great play on words. 🙂
what feels seen
but only in spirit
we’re hidden in shade
like phantom pain
I recently read these gems, very touching and heart-felt. This poem (published over three days) expresses well the emotions dealt with at the end of relationships. Might evoke some tears for those who can relate; you’ve been warned.
In silence I hear your voice cracking,
You whisper your final wish;
“You and I are lacking.”
So simple it was for you to say.
Beyond my mind,
beyond my soul,
I was lost for you not to stay.
you said; “You knew it would happen one day”.
The burden I felt streaming through my vein,
the voice I lost in my pain,
the wish I never had imagined in my brain,
The waves were still and waiting for their remain.
Silence is what kept us wondering,
to wonder; “I Was not afraid to ask!”
To tell; You did with no mask.
To tell; You did with no mask.
Face to eye,
body to linger,
We grasp like there is no tomorrow.
For there shall be a next sorrow.
you said; “I’m sorry, but I have to.”
We were in a flow,
but you had to grow,
beyond your dreams you stayed,
but in pain we weren’t made.
You had to grow,
we weren’t in a flow,
….. anymore. You said your goodbye,
“You had me at hello.”
while we both disappeared into the blue sky.
Desire of the best,
you remained you
Whose Liability was caught by atmospheric beauty.
At the end of light, in the beginning of time,
I rise with thou gazing moon to seek for wolfs cry.
By dint of howl I reckon my faults eye;
“Thereby I fought/ I arise/ I wander
To clamber through life in gallivant of night,
A butterfly of dawn,
nor battles cry,
I Amplify my music of spheres through, but why?
To ask, but not to answer.
To seek, but not to find.
To touch, but not to feel.
“To not deny the truth from my goodbye.”
Raise your hand if you’ve experienced this. Why do we do this to ourselves?
She loved until she lost herself
She gave until she was empty
She hung on until her fingers bled
And her hourglass was hungry
She was an inveterate long time lover
each chapter in her life
sewn together neatly between each love
Never knowing how to say goodbye
Never knowing when enough was enough
Letting go in such a mature and heartbreaking, but loving way. May we all aspire to handle those moments in life which bring upheavals our way.
I see you playing games
with my already frutstrated mind.
I can not help but wonder
if you are still the same guy
who made me believe in love
and that we’d build a wonderful life.
The song you used to play
to praise my eyes and smile
have suddenly vanished away
for I haven’t heard it in a while.
Well, I guess,
now the melodies have changed
and your words have lost their rhyme.
Your heart might pe the purest of all,
and your good deeds might be infinite.
But I think you aren’t aware;
breaking beautiful hearts can cost you
an irrecoverable loss for a lifetime.
I still don’t wish any ill for you,
for I’ve loved having you by my side.
my words may seem harsh sometimes,
I would never want you to feel lost
like a raindrop in an overcast sky.

Heartbreak my punishment, loneliness my reward.
lethargic, depressed, tired
and by my side
you need me
to get you to functional
engaged, up, happy
and still not by my side
there is loneliness
with or without you
you’re just not there
