Without you

Without you

A Poem by AaronFreitas
"

Watching one of my fav shows... wrote some stuff for fun

"

This is probably a little past due,

but as I keep waiting for time

to heal these wounds… I only find

myself still missing you.

 

I know I was so far from perfect,

No matter how hard I tried…

I could never find happiness... yet it

kills when I see tears in your eyes.

 

I never wanted to hurt you,

Only a chance to love you.

But the harder I tried the 

farther away I pushed you.

 

Maybe I was never good enough.

 

So I found ways to cope and to

be happy momentarily… never

realizing the path of destruction

and heartbreak I would leave behind.

 

Maybe the world will be a better

place without me… I’ll never know.

What I do know is that I’ll never

be a better “me” without you.

Poignant piece. The pain and loss of relationship; something every human being experiences. Here you have captured its essence. The pleasure and pain, the truth and blame, elegantly written and evenly delivered. A wonderful poem from an excellent poet. Thank you for rr, and sharing your art.

Peace, Todd

"So I found ways to cope and to
be happy momentarily… never
realizing the path of destruction
and heartbreak I would leave behind."


...and with these lines...oh,,that thing..you tried convincing
yourself you'll be fine...though you know way deep down your heart you miss that someone so bad..
that you've cry yourself to sleep just so you could atleast forget that pain...

The sphere and influence of love is wide open. Although the past holds so much pain and angst, the present and future hold new promises, fresh starts. Keep your hopes up and learn from the past. Sad but an excellent write on this subject.....:).....

Aaron, This piece so accurately describes the universal feelings of pain and self-disgust when a relationship dissolves. One always blames one's self, and tears a hamstring kicking themselves in the a*s. One will meet another, and though it may be different it can still turn out to be so much better, even though the sameness is absent. Keep your heart open. Open for business. When my wife and I met neither one of us was looking for a partner, both getting over bitter divorces. But love found a way to put us in each other's path. Hope, and love. take care...dan

A sad reflective and 'insightful' piece> How many of us have been there, can relate to this?

Lovely piece Aaron. Pleading to fade away in one's heart is not easy but man you have nailed it :)
