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.

Thank you very much :) I am glad you enjoyed it
Very well written piece. There are probably so many people out there in the worldwho feel like as described in your piece. Very touching sad and emotional but brillinatly executed.

Thank you very much Mark!
Good to hear from you Aaron! I often write things like this as well when life seems troubling. It really does help to write these feelings down, in a way to helps you come to reality about how you feel. Remember, there is always the possibility that the right one just hasn't come along yet who can make you feel again. Never give up trying! :)

Heartbreak is the nasty thing that could make you dwindle between the thoughts of maybes. Liked the simple powerful piece.

"At least I have me."
Very relatable.
As for the genre, maybe you can put it under catharsis?

We have to depend upon ourselves in the end....we have to make ourselves happy. We can not rely on anyone else to do this. I liked your rambling. Love finds us when we are not looking. Lydi**

Life is odd. Sometime opportunity for love and sometime love seem a impossible task.
"Yet, I stop to think that it's still just me laying alone in this bed. At least I have me."
I like the lines above. Sometime we must find things to make us happy and hope someone fall at our feet.Thank you Aaron for sharing the excellent poetry.

This is good Aaron. Thanks for being honest with us. I've written many pieces based on feelings just like these. It gets better. Great piece.

As painful as this is to read Aaron, it is nice to read you today :) Those moments seem infinite at times but there is always the nagging voice inside the heart that reminds you that you still have you, a reason to keep turning corners right there my friend :)
