Hey girl, I'm sorry for what you're going through! It's unfortunate how everything may seem so great, yet it's the complete opposite and we wish we would have known better to let go sooner.. it always seems it is harder to let go when you should have long ago; but that's always easier said than done. If this is indeed true, I wish you all you deserve :)
I feel we all go through this at some point in life...unfortunately. But though these relationships have the tendency to break us to our very core, they also teach us what it is we truly want out of love. Wonderful peeve of poetry!!
"Lies I turned into love notes
to help me sleep at night."
^^These lines hit me hard.
This is so heart wrenching, so smoothly expressed but every word has a heavy weight in it. So many emotions in this & it's so very relatable.
Congratulations on your well deserved win :)
I am coming on this part of site's section after a long time...so finding it hard to surf & come across good old friendly poets....I get a feeling that you were also in Phoenix Rising group once which was headed by Cindy back then...am I right?
Lady Nik, you've got mail, it say's that you have talent! I like the stark comparisons between the spurned one, and, the uncaring, heartless one. Truly a sad write of a broken hearted lover. I hope that it is not a poem related to yourself? Congrats on your win, added to my Favorites.
Life is such, it gives you the good and the bad and somehow
we are left alone to find the strength to deal and be able to stand
on our feet. This has the many shades of love which your heart gave
with pain...take care
