    i was sitting outside alone
    on a bench
    crying
    autumn was being cruel to me again
    and it was barely october
    but it was barely october
    with its orange-red days
    and cold dark blue nights
    when a broken heart sought a soothing fix
    in a night of false love false passion
    creating life
    creating chaos and confusion in my body
    that would soon be torn away from
    my nourishing young womb
    though the air was warm
    with a bright yellow sky
    i felt a definite chill in my soul
    my soul still mourns for the loss of that offspring
    my body reacts
    and
    october will never be lovely to me again...

    Okay, personally? Get outta my life and get outta my head! I could have written that exact poem and have those same feelings...October...girl, don't sweat it. With time, you will love the season once again.

    please...must you bring up these memories that I have long since tryed to repress...then again, perhaps it is good for me to encompass them...shedding tears for you and sending prayers full of blessings from a soul that KNOWS where you are coming from

    Wildflower7- From "A woman my age", I can from experience say, time will pass as healing begins, but memories will last eternally. But know that where ever you are a woman is not far that has been down your path and is living to laugh again for all seasons. You are not alone on your bench.

    thanks much for the love, y'all...
    really, i was remembering the pain i
    used to carry but with all the time
    that has passed, i don't feel that
    emptiness anymore,
    God has filled it...
    so for those of you still experiencing
    that hurt, God will deliver you
    but you have to forgive yourself first.
    peace... love... blessings from above...
