    When the world turns a cold shoulder,

    I am here for you,

    When I am alone, waddling in my misery,

    nobodys there for me.

    Jim Bean, and Jack Daniel..

    have always been friends of mine,

    It hasnt been until recently,

    That they have been comforting me,

    The world has been my biggest advisary,

    Yet everyone depends on me,

    Im here for her, him, she, and he..

    Yet nobodys here for lil' old me.

    So I reach out to a friend or two,

    ones so involved in her own world,

    she dosent even see the pain that has become me,

    The other has busied himself,

    planned the month out... for time with everyone,

    cept' me.

    These two special ppl in my life..

    Are there for everyone but me,

    I pray to God to set me free,

    Because the world is such a cold place,

    No place for a warm person like me,

    Momma asked me the other day,

    whats wrong, with me,

    The thought of pouring out all my problems,

    overflowed my eyes,

    and all i could do was sigh,

    Theres so much to it,

    my heart is still broken..

    they say time heals all wounds,

    but its been 2 years.. and 2 years just aint do.

    I was thinkin the cure to a broken heart,

    Was to start to love a new,

    So many new starts,

    Id see none of them thru,

    Stressed.. and depressed..

    I no longer know what to do.

    Existing isnt enough anmore,

    I want to be happy..

    Im so tired of being blue,

    So tired of watering my soul with whisky,

    till i cant feel the pain,

    so the night I can sleep thru,

    So I pray,

    each night to sleep, I lay..

    me down to sleep..

    praying to God..

    my soul hed keep,

    protect me from my own misery.

    Im a fighter..

    I surive while the weak plunder.

    All I need is support,

    from under.

    So Jack Daniels & Jim Bean,

    I wont be seeing,

    any more,

    Its time for me to support my own misery.

    So the pain,

    the heartache,

    becomes history.

    Hi Dear Sister
    You just brought me to tears as I read your flow
    And indeed you are very loved. And sometimes you
    has to be a best friend to yourself. I just want to sent you
    some love with a big old hug..:grouphug:.and tell Jim Bean and Jack Daniel
    you have other plans. And broken hearts can only mend
    when you become your own best friend....so support the postive light
    that shines from you, and only you and Our Heaven Father have the clue
    and then perhaps your world won't seen so blue, because happiness for you
    is over due and it times for you to cut sadness loose, and then you will find a brand new you
    ..now I need a tissue...much love to you dear

    Peace and Love

    This was so emotive, it really touched me. Yes, I've heard folks say that the way to get over a broken heart is to find someone new, but it just doesn't work. Someone new has to be able to stand on their own without any ties to the past. And as far as that bottle of brew, many have used that potion, but eventually we become our own sedative. Feeling this write.
