A Poem by sette

Seven years ago,

I was an emotional mess.

I have loved him too much

That I can’t think straight.

 

I was praying to God endlessly,

That please make my heart stop beating wildly,

Let my heart be tired from loving him.

Let my mind rule this time.

 

It took seven years,

To realize that loving him

Is a mistake and nothing more.

The pain he left me was unbearable.

 

When I have the time to reflect,

Where had all the pain go?

Why the tears stopped flowing?

Why the loneliness ebbed slowly?

 

Perhaps,

I am now emotionally healed.

I am stronger than before

Most of all I start loving myself more.

thanks Karen for the wonderful review I always appreciate it
Knocked it on the head.
Love yourself first.
Let only true love enter.
Never reflect on past relationships. No point.
Get back in the game quick.

hopefully I can thanks for the wonderful review Paul
Love or being in love can often, unfortunately, be very painful.
Glad to see, it seems, that you have risen above the pain and
anguish to appreciate yourself.

Take care - Dave

We know that love can be blind, but learn through heartache that it can also mess with the rest of the senses too. There is no rule book for how long it takes to heal, unfortunately.

so true lorry thanks for the wonderful review
Derailed--and spinning your wheels--for seven years?
Seems like way too high a price to pay.
Glad you're chugging along, once again.
Cheers!

The healing process takes too long as we are helpless to speed it up. Though life never get slow down. Great creation Indeed!
