One step forward
Three steps back
A 2 minute conversation
Throws my strength off track
Tears welling up
Yet refusing to cry
You’re not worthy
You’re the one who said good-bye
Love don’t live here anymore
My life’s refrain
Trying to move on yet
Suffering from an emotional freeze frame
Trying to let you go
With both hands clenched
Reflecting on our past
How did love turn to this?
Easily you moved on
Started a new life
And here I am still
Considering myself your wife
The bed is empty
The sheets long cold
Tear soaked pillows
Life seems out of control
Three months without
Tender kisses and hugs
My life now revolves
Around memories of what was
| Yo. . . after going through a serious break-up this past New Year's, I totally feel and understand this poem. And the part the mesmerized me was:|
Easily you moved on
Started a new life
And here I am still
Considering myself your wife
Because the reason why we broke up, wuz through miscommunication - clearly, the person I was with had moved on, and I was still claimining them as mine. It hurts, and I cried many nights because of it, but... you live, you grow, you learn and you move on. But yeah, this was hot, fa'real, fa'real.

You carried those feeling excellently throughout this poem. I loved the flow. I loved the way you described how it feels to be alone after being a couple. Everything is darker and colder to you. I'm sorry you went through this. This was a very good write.|

All I have to say is that...you have more strength then you can even begin to imagine. Everybody does. It's just going about finding that strength. You must look into this whole world that exists within yourself. Dwelling on a love that has foregone...I have been there too. You have to give up a lot it feels to let go of just one person...when in reality you don't. Love can consume more of a person then just their heart. It consumes your whole being. It takes over and you become dependent on it. It's addictive. Then, when the love is taken away...you have withdrawals. Love is the worst drug ever.
You have a beauty about you that you overlook every time that you look in the mirror. I know that there was once a day that you loved who you saw every time you looked at her...never lose that. NEVER. I look in a mirror every time I walk by one...it gives me a reminder that I am a beautiful person...and I don't say that from what I see externally...I say that from the whole person that I am. I WILL LET NO ONE TAKE THAT FROM ME! NO ONE!
Look within yourself sis and find the woman that you long to see in the mirror...the mother, the daughter, the sister, the friend. You are so much more then what you choose to find within yourself. When the saying is said that there are angels on earth...there are...mend that wing and fly. Fly before you forget how.
Much love, forever and always.

I love the way this flows. I can almost feel the heart break and the emotions that come with breaking up and loosing the one you love.
|| Posted on 2005-12-01 00:00:00 | by mimi | [ Reply to This ] || damn you... why i gotta read sad poems when i'm finally happy! nah, don't worry about it, my own stupidity (hello, look at the title, did you think it was gonna be happy??) |
when you come to grips with something in the middle of the poem, and then kind of lose it at the end... it's like you feel like your sanity's teetering... or that's just what i think. well, it may not be worth much but i have one thing to say.
NO LLORAS CHICA! TUS HERMANAS ESTAMOS AQUI PARA TI CUANDO NOS NECESITAS. M'ENTIENDES??! love ya! MWAH! ...bb...
|| Posted on 2005-11-30 00:00:00 | by Phoenix2004 | [ Reply to This ] || This is just heartbreaking, yet beautiful at the same time. Beautiful because underneath the sadness and the bitter loss, there's a glimmer of hope. It doesn't seem like it now, but life will be good again. If this is the same man who stepped up for your little girl, maybe there's a chance if nothing else, that you can be friends later. |
As for the piece itself, very good form, great rhyming scheme and the words you used brought every emotion out.
|| Posted on 2005-11-28 00:00:00 | by onetruesmartass | [ Reply to This ] || Well, I think I relate to this in a totally different way...because everytime the love of my life says goodbye...and every time he leaves me feeling empty...and alone...I always know there's going to be another hello in there somewhere. I loved your title of a silent cry...I feel like that's what I do every second of ever day...you can't show your pain...but it hurts too much to totally ignore it..and that's what we get..an ache..a silent cry that never really stops. I hope everything works out for you..take care...great write. ~hailie~||| Posted on 2005-11-26 00:00:00 | by loveispain | [ Reply to This ] || Wow, that is so sad.. I think the only thing I might have to say about the poem (other than it is very beautiful, and yet so heartbreaking) is that the words sometimes don't flow the same way... But that's just what I see..||| Posted on 2005-11-23 00:00:00 | by LonelyFlower | [ Reply to This ] || It does seem that when our heart feels the most is when our best writing comes out. This was was from the heart, sad and emotional.. and touched me deeply. |
Sometimes it's just too damn hard to "let go and move on", even when you know you should.
|| Posted on 2005-11-19 00:00:00 | by Intricate1 | [ Reply to This ] || Sad. Yeah, this was pretty worthy of that sentiment and a good perception of one aspect of the things that bring on that certain emotion. Dont you hate it when people lose faith in you? Its pretty sad, like you said here. But then ya just gotta grab a beer or do something that reminds ya..."Yeah, people may lose faith in me, but I always have faith that I can at least make people lose faith in me." HA! Get it? That keeps you from ever being able to lose faith in yourself, hee-hee!|
But then again, like you say..."Maybe you are just too sexy!"
|| Posted on 2005-11-18 00:00:00 | by hyproglo | [ Reply to This ] || This is awfully sad... wish people did not have to go through so much pain... I am currently depressed so anything I say on this one might be out of lashing out... I think it is a good poem... it shows your feelings of lonelyness and how you are stuck on this one person without being able to escape from love's grasp... It takes time and specially if it is as deep as you describe it on this one... wife... which is one of the deepest bonds there should be... marriage... life long commitment to one person... some people jump into it some people wait until it is too late... I think you just got to think about it a positive way... it is his lost anyways mami and you know that yourself... if he left you let him go because if he could not tell what a great woman he had in front of him then he is not worth your tears... Again nice write and keep writing|
