I guess the first and last stanzas really hit home for me. Anybody that's ever lost..someone that they are so completely in love with...knows the emptiness and the hopelessness that you showed here in this poem. When someone makes you who you are...makes you be who you want to be..and then...they leave...it's just like you said..you lose a part of yourself...something inside of you dies. Whether you find it again with the same person or with someone new...love will take form in your life again...it always does. Great write and so emotional. I loved it. ~hailie~
WOW.....girl I feel your pain. We never notice how much somebody means to us until we either lose them or they lose us.
This was impactful. you definitely left me with the emotion that you had when you wrote it. Yet, I have been in and out of that same emotion for the last week, so maybe you just made it flicker a little.
Love is such a wonderful thing when we have it, when we hold it, and when we appreciate it. When it comes to a point where that love is lost, taken for granted, or just simply drifts away.....we lose part of ourself with it.
I hope that you keep your head up and know that the most beautiful things in this world don't come as on single entity. Just as a flower...if you see it once....you most likely will somewhere down the road see it again.
