    this pain u caused
    is such a lonely distraction
    i thought i'd fall out of love
    & fall asleep
    but neither one seems to happen

    i've taken inventory of my emotions
    and cleared room for other things
    now my chest
    has nothing left
    since that broken heart
    wasn't worth salvaging

    we were 4 years deep
    into this forever thing
    with potential of making it five
    but with 1 phone call
    u threw away it all
    i guess my cell phone lied

    i saved your name as "can't do wrong"
    your number was 1-4-3 (i-love-you)
    you gave me chills
    and pupply love thrills
    mixed with grown folks tendencies

    i gave you effort
    and genuine progress
    covered you in my prayers
    when you were faithless
    i sold you dreams
    with realestate
    opened up my life
    and said make yourself
    at home

    my heart was a size 10 1/2
    a tailor made fit for you
    and no matter how big
    the next man swears he is
    he'll never be able to fit
    in my shoes

    When you truly believe it's forever, and it becomes clear it's not, it's an ache that feels like it's going to tear one in half. Somehow we remain whole, but the healing takes time. This piece was quite endearing, and well felt. Welcome back poet.

    And so the story goes....
    I feel you ever so deep on
    this piece. You keep your
    head up because tomorrow
    is always another opportunity
    for something/one great for you.




    Much Luv

    Nitty Gritt - Maybe it's written in the Book of Love that we have to meet a few wrong people before meeting the one that's right, perhaps to insure that we are grateful when we do. So don't cry because it's finish, smile because it happened. Take the frown off the face, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile whose size may be all that matters. Great work Nitty Gritt. Crafted well. Namyh

    So What Don't kill You Will Make You Stronger, Just You Keep Living And Watch Your Wisdom Get Longer. I Don't Sure If Your Writing About Your Pain or Someone Else's But I Think It's Beautiful.And When You Put It Like That, Size Absolutely Matters!

    With the death of a relationship comes a painful period of mourning and anyone who has loved and
    loss can relate to the emotions in each line of this piece. Thank God with time the painful period is done.

    I always enjoy reading your work... it reads real.
