    Will he ever see
    what this is doing to me
    the shear difficulty
    of ending this life
    even one so full of strife

    Letting go
    with no ideas for
    tomorrow

    Into an abyss
    I'm throwing marital bliss
    but was there?

    This is happening
    and must continue
    for us to grow

    This is such a strain
    I am so full of pain

    Because I love him
    and have to let him
    go

    my eyes are still fixed on your bottom line....
    I fear I shouldn't speak about this... it is one of those scribes that holds you in its palm... allowing every syllable of every pharse to completely marinate.

    *soaking*

    Sad but inspiring. So many women are in this very position, having to make this very decision...

    This is such a strain
    I am so full of pain

    Because I love him
    and have to let him
    go

    girlfriend, at least you have a man to let go of...but a on a more serious note...'you know that saying "if you love someone let them go. if they come back to you, it was meant to be if they don't it was never meant to be"? Rubbish I say!!!! if they come back, they lonely as hell and they realise you're a good thing, if they don't comeback, hey, we'll nurse your broken heart...either way...I'm talking rubbish so don't listen to me...I'm just in a silly mood! hahaha :angel1: :angel1: :angel1: :x:

    but not to invalidate what you feeling gal..I'm with you which ever way the tide turns.

    Tears roll down my cheek.
    I need to wipe them away.
    Excuse me a moment,
    your passion is so strong.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Gaylee, your words, your words! I can only imagine the purest heart from which they flow. In agreement with all before me. Touching, and inspiring.
