    The pain has come back…tugging on my chest…like a massive heart attack...it is so real…I awake in a sweat…tears in my eyes…thinking this is all a lie...gasping for air…I reach for you…only to feel a void…where you once had been…I get up to get a glass of water…looking in the mirror…I think I see your shadow...I follow your footsteps down the hall…only to run into the wall…I scream and cry and fall into a ball…wondering what you are doing…where have you been…do you think of me…do you have sleepless nights...are you alone…is someone holding you tight…thinking of you …thinking of him…I can’t take this pain anymore…I want to take my heart out…do my own open heart….if the pain could only go away…if the memories would just fade…if the lies had never been told…if meeting you never happened…if seeing you I only... walked away…if I never let you in…if I never looked into your eyes
    If I never believed your lies…If I never left to start a new life with you as my wife…I keep asking why
    Only to face the tears I cry...

    Rico..
    I understand this pain
    I have been thru the strain
    It breaks your heart into half
    While she's out there, on a date having a laugh
    I have been here before;It ain't nice
    For all that apin youre feelin..heres some adivce
    While your in your bed crying
    She's downtown about to be lying
    So I suggest that you start to heal
    She cares not about the pain that you feel....

    .....Man, My heart goes out to you Rico b/ c I truly understand and me myself, I am still getting over it and truthfully, I think that I have been over it.....I am so mad that she's ddoing you like that..Nice scribe cuz I really felt you

    Hi Rico,

    I feel your pain. I have been there before many, many times. I suppose we all have. Hang on and one day the pain will subside. I promise it will. Soon joy will enter your heart and erase all the hurt.

    Rico, this is a wonderfully expressed poem!! Keep writing. Writing is a fantastic way to rid the soul of sorrow and pain.

    Welcome to Destee. I look forward to reading more of your work!!

    ~Sierra~ :heart:

    To know the pain of a broken heart..
    searching for relief, that no medicine could ever provide..

    To lose a loved one is painful, but look to Him...
    He who provides the strength for you, to continue on..

    have faith in He, who knows your pain...soon my friend it will pass
