A Poem by AaronFreitas
"

Just some stuff I wrote and decided to share since it's been forever!

"

I try to pick up the pieces of my shattered heart left crumbled on the ground but defeat starts to set into my mind. Emptiness is a feeling all too familiar as I lay here and contemplate what the rest of my life without love would feel like. Nearly two years have passed and women come and go... not one has chosen to stay and accept the love I have to give. On the other hand, maybe they see that this heart is empty and while I lay here believing in what I have to offer, the women of the past see that there's nothing left. No love, no compassion and no reason to love me. I lay alone without a tear in my eye, without an ache in my heart. Yet, I caress a crack in my soul as the pain and hurt from life without love is beyond affecting the body I reside in. It's much deeper than that now. It's taking a slow, torturing toll on my soul that will last eternity. An emptiness and loneliness that bruises the very thought of my own existence to a point of feeling completely gone from life as we know. Yet, I stop to think that it's still just me laying alone in this bed. At least I have me.

An interesting write caught between an itch you cannot scratch, a hunger that won't go away and maybe just maybe,slow down and let love come to you, its all about being out there socially and something happens when you least expect it. apart from that i feel your pain. Hi Aaron hope all is well.

Well my dear. This piece hit a nerve with me.
You and I have had many, many personal conversations about love, life, and everything in between. It is a long and hard road... We both know that.

I like how you explore the reasons possible loves have come and gone. It was brilliant sweetie. As usual

I say if someone can't love you when it's just you
then they don't deserve the nine yards
Where have you been Aaron ..... missing reading more of your work
Its been way too long .....

Jesus are you still alive buddy..its been forever.

I love the rawness and painful insecurity in this piece...I think you sumed all those feeling really well. I liked how it resembled some of my own lonely thoughts. Well done buddy

This is somewhat 40% people in this world are feeling right now.. miserable and lonely.
This was painful yet beautiful..
Keep writing :)

Raw pain---swollen until it is numb. Last line is a powerful recognition of self worth and perhaps hope for healing. Such a heart gripping piece. I pray the sun is shining on you once again.

I really dig the achingly numb content of this piece. it really invites us as readers to soak in it.

Thank you Crystal :)
I like this poem, I feel like I'm getting a peak in your raw, unfiltered brainstorming and your thoughts, and writing like that takes a lot of practice and skill. Nice!
