    I've been to that place where I inhaled all of him into me.. And lost myself
    I've been to that place where love ruled all, and clouded my mind, judgment, & wisdom..
    I've been to that place where future in laws took me in as their own, relationships kindled and binds grew stronger..
    I've been to that place where these newly formed binds had to be torn apart, ever so abruptly..becuase of him
    I've been to that place where love grows & stalls, paints & stains, mends & rips, consoles & cast down, rubs & stabs, nurtures & neglects..
    I've been to that place where love allowed me to care for his seed as though it was my own..
    I've been to that place where the shhyt hit the fan, glass was shattered, and dreams deferred.
    I've been to that place where I've learned to let go, move on, EXhale him out of me, and grow….freely...

    Luved this piece. I am sure many
    can relate to That Place.
    but the end to the journey is always
    ever so sweet.


    "I've been to that place where I've learned to let go,

    When you can do that you have truely grown and moved on.
    I felt this deep.


    Much Luv

    We may visit this place more than once, not knowing for sure where a relationship's road will take us. You shared this pain so well, with your use of vivid adjectives. Feeling this Nubian, well done.

    Well done Sis Nubian! "That Place" is one well-traveled and seems to extend a welcoming mat to its visitors pretty regularly. It's avoiding "That Place" that is the mission but that would be like avoiding LIFE. Sometimes, it's inevitable and you just gotta go there. But even "That Place" makes us stronger!!

    You hit a home run with this piece Sis!

    P.S. Great to see you in chat as well! Don't be a stranger!!!

    I KNOW OF A PLACE...

    ~A secret place
    Where hearts
    And
    Minds
    And
    Dreams
    Come to meet

    Where love grows
    And flourishes
    In midnight’s
    Quiet.

    I’ve visited this place
    ~The secret place
    Where strife was banished
    And stress resides
    No more

    As I looked on
    An island of calm enveloped me
    Peace and tranquility
    Overwhelmed me

    I was entreated to the most
    Wonderful feeling
    When…An abundance of ease
    Embraced me
    …Holding me close
    Within the warmth of its
    Bosom

    When I peered into the heart of
    This place
    ~The secret place
    I saw You {peering back at me}
