    i have no words
    for the sorrow

    when touching
    is like
    fingernails
    peeling back
    fresh wounds
    of tender skin

    when keeping
    out is as painful
    as coming in

    & kissing
    is a cruel
    reminder
    of what rhymes
    with
    "m-i-s-s-i-n-g"

    ooh how it hurts to feel
    a broken heart

    and so hard not
    to caress the
    damaged part

    we try to predict
    but so
    uncertain
    of the next day

    ...whether it finds us
    standing or
    blown ...completely away

    yet still close
    enough to
    remember

    the holding
    and sharing
    and the shifting
    blame...

    the loving
    then the learning
    we're not the same

    tho sweetly
    tied by offspring
    and this good name

    (intended for--ever
    not just to borrow)

    i can't find words
    for the sorrow

    how real...how real! I feel this scribe...it's funny how, when your single you want to be in love and have somebody..but when you have somebody and its all wrong...you wonder which is better, two halfs in their own worlds and no longer in this world that they built together...is just painful! lovely stuff my sister.

    lo'

    The title alone is a wonder of words. This SO describes the feeling of when what was supposed to be a life long loving relationship, doesn't turn out to be that way at all. I am beyond any more words for this one.
