    This poem is dedicated to Mr. X.........

    As I open my eyes
    it hurts to see
    yet another day without you…….

    Feels like my hearts been shredded
    can’t cry no more
    been drug through 12 rounds with Tyson
    knocked out and numb
    bleeding
    scattered on the floor
    sucked out my chest
    guess I’ll stick it in my shoe
    already been walked on…..

    Is it possible to live through this?
    somebody please tell me what the hell the lesson is…….
    and why I had to be the one to learn it
    and how forever turned into 2 years
    and why I cant seem to move on
    why everywhere I look,
    couples holding hands
    makes me nauseous
    thinking of you with someone else

    It’s so hard to see the big picture
    through eyes filled with tears

    If I could just get a grip
    long enough
    to stop the bleeding
    to save myself
    i would see the other side

    I would see that
    true loss
    is holding on to summer in the fall
    I would see that
    emotional bondage
    is yet another box
    sent by the matrix
    to control me......
    And that
    setting you free
    would also free me…..

    Turning the page
    ive decided to surrender…….
    step out of the box
    back into the light
    back into life….

    No mistakes
    only lessons
    and growth
    and change
    movement…..

    WHAT WILL BE WILL BE…..
    Peace...

    So Touching...

    This piece has such a saddening tone. Very emotional; yet, the ending exudes overcoming. I know I can relate to such a week...

    I feel you ma...

    Im at a loss for words wishing I could comfort you but truthfully I cant. I feel your pain but somehow I wonder whose loss was greater...

    You will find one worthy of you and you will be his prize possession ma!

    Believe in love...
