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

Great poem! :) This is so sweet and bitter at the same time. It’s a very horrible feeling when think like this.

Thank you Brenda... I will have to check yours out :) Thanks for the review :)
Isn't it so much to become a much better you and show the other person what they're missing out on? surely though, this world wouldn't be a better place without you, cause nearly 800 people couldn't have read this awesome poem. You're gonna make it through whatever happens, you're talented and you gotta keep on writing :)) sorry if I missed the message here I just say what's on my mind.. kind of my problem

wow honestly this is exactly how I'm feeling right now. this is a certain place of emotion that many people experience, and somehow you just said it so simply and beautifully in a way many people might pick up a pencil and stuck without a word to write down.

Thank you Norah... I am glad you liked it :)
Even though it feel so, there's always hope bro. Just hold on to it and slowly that piece of you that died or faded away will re-emerge with time...
I feel your pain here and for you- there's nothing wrong with feeling such a way, but do know and trust that it'll all work out my dude.
