getting over you

getting over you

A Poem by MandarinOranges

a familiar sense of loss

wraps me up tight tonight.

it holds me fast in it's arms

of longing and regret.

 

 

it seems everytime i awake

from these intoxicating

dreams of you, i feel the ache

tugging at the corner of my eyes,

pulling on the strings of my heart,

weighing me down,

with an intolerable grief.

 

 

i struggle against it

trying to fight it off, whispering,

'it is nothing, nothing at all',

but i fail to shake it everytime.

 

 

i've come now  to accept this as a loosing battle;

 

that in love,

you can never win

and in this life,

there will be no

getting over you.

such a familiar feeling...so relatable...its just not easy to put such feelings into words...painfully sad...

"i've come to accept this as a loosing battle;
that in love you can never win
and in this life,
there just won't be any
getting over you."

deeply touching...and the bitter truth! "there just won't be any getting over you"
these lines just seem to have stuck with me! and a tear drops...
a great write! thanks for sharing...

How unfortunate it is that we all must go through this. It was beautifully written though.

Very touching, and well done. It pulled out my emotions right along with it, line by line. What can I say? Awesome job. :)

Love is a four letter word, with that hard edge of another four letter word - with the stink of another four letter word - and with the pure vitriol of yet another four letter word... yet, in the end; we go there again and again, foolish in our belief that it might be different the next time... it will be what it will be, and it may be glorious and earth shattering - or - it may be dismal and earth shattering, whatever it is - that is what it is...

This is pretty. I read it through a couple of times and liked it better the second time. It grows on you in a good way. Its sad and got such a sense of loss that you can't look away. Nice job.
