The way the world moves
turning round and around
never stopping for a pause

Suddenly you and I stood still in time
and as the world moved on
I was caught in grief and anger
I couldn't free myself of these emotions

As time progressed I finally understood
you are just another side of me...
And it was then I found the strength
to carry on without you

    I love the simplicity of this,
    I also love how you come to the conclusion that you could indeed carry on, you found strength in yourself to do so.

    The use of the world spinning while you paused was a great analogy. It shows that you were so absorbed in this break up that you withdrew from life slightly you became distant from others.

    luckily the poem finishes on a high with the strength you gained.

    great write.

    Hi Ingrid,

    Loved this one as well. You are a talent! I think this nicely touches a common human emotion, albeit a sad one, but those make us stronger as well, says the poem! really enjoy this..thanks for posting.

    I had to go old school...and see what you were writing way back in the 'olden times' as my 6 yr. old calls it.

    I liked the simplicity of this poem in contrast to how hard it is to move on from someone/something that we once loved. A beautiful write, I particularly enjoyed the ending. 5/5
