    It’s been…a year
    Been over two million tears
    And so many fears…
    That came back to haunt
    As I failingly put on a front
    To mask the emotions
    To cover my oceans…
    …of grief
    As I soured high into you
    And you molded into me

    It’s been a …..year….today

    And the phone has yet to ring…..
    I remember as my heart sang
    And wailed as the
    Throne of our love fell
    And you threw me into hell
    Not giving me a lifeboat
    So I thought it was a joke
    Til I loved you so hard
    That my heart simply …broke

    It’s been a year…today


    And yes, I am over it
    I think I have covered it
    And put it
    Back in my mind
    The days when you loved my behind
    Caressed my chin , kissed my neck
    Had me feening, I was at your beck
    I made naïve *** plans
    Just maybe a thought…you could be my man

    It’s been a ….year …today….

    And true I still care about you
    I lay down and think about you
    How you will always be number one
    Even though we are forever done
    There are so many words….
    But I can’t give you my time
    So I guess this is ….goodbye
    Forever this time……..

    It’s…been a year…….

    And I still remember….


    But I’m letting you go

    the healing ability of words sometimes still cannot touch what only time can, the release of pain, feeling you, thanks for the view into this peice of reality.

    Well said and well done!

    Very mature point of view my young sister, not many of us elders can even put it down quite so
    eloquently and with such conviction. I love it! Keep doing your thing.

    Blessings On Your House!
