Dear John (no.1)

by kelleyana   Jan 13, 2011


Dear John,

Another man entered my life in the months you have been gone. In the beginning I was happy being your devoting wife, but those years was when you were by my side. Since then, i'm lost within my dream. Lonely nights scream when i'm under my sheet and in the darkness I sit absorbing it all in. The the pain of you being away surge throughout my being, and i succumb to its sting.

I have cried a river and with my strength, I've build a bridge and i get over you. Believe me, marriage is not a word but a sentence, a commitment, where two beings came together to form an heart. I know that the grass is not greener on the other side, but greener where it is watered and natured.This reality i learned since my new love entered my life. Since then you have being replaced both in my heart and mind.

We have had our fair share of happiness and now you and I are all the past. All memories of you and I are all escape from my thoughts. That simple because true happy moments will never be possible from now on, when the magical moments has long gone. Harsh it may seem but I want both of us to be happy. If I can't feel it in my heart, neither can I give you what you truly deserve.

That being the case, go and seek your own rainbow, I have found mine and I'm sure yours will appear when the time is right comes.
Life is not stable, this wind that blow in my direction and showered me with so much love and affection. In my heart we are far from each other as the sky and the earth, and no more memories of you will flow in the air because nothing is left. Now I'm focused on my love who makes me smile, share my dreams and make his presence worthwhile.

I wrote this poem after reading Dear John, by Billy Rob.

    Sounded like it was hard for the protagonist of the poem to say those things, but she realized she had to let go of what caused her pain and finally find happiness.. Inspiring, good job.

    Well, receiving a letter such as this would make a man grieve less, Kelleyana:)

    Very beautiful how you worded this, but I am glad to know it is just a poem, and not reality!

    If all people dared to be this honest, this world would be a far, far better place.
