    It has been said that love is so painful. However, nothing can be further from the truth. Love is not painful, it is the ABSENCE of love that is so painful. Love, in and of itself, is so wonderful on all of it's levels from Agape to Fellio (I ain spelled dat right). But at it's absence is undescribable pain, then healing...hopefully.

    In this haiku project, J'hiah and I shall scribe on the subject of broken relationships. We hope that the married and the single person will recieve some insight into relationships that are not working out. In this particular project, we will be posting from a "Woman To Man" perspective. In other words, the woman who has been hurt by her man. Hopefully, J'hiah will be able to offer some insight into why so many men hurt women so easily. In our future project, we will scribe from a "Man To Woman" perspective. In this I hope to scribe some insight into why so many women have hurt men...for I was once this way.

    For some, this will be a time of restoration, but for others, it will be a time of...going on. In either case, we hope that these little haikus will be a great blessing in giving strength and hope to go on living despite the pain.

    Trippin'

    Trippin' over you
    You swept me off of my feet...
    Into a dungeon.

    With amazing ease...
    You dropped our vessel of love.
    Your pieces pierce me.

    You've sentenced our love
    To everlasting heartache.
    My question is...why?

    In my humble opinion

    I find no fault in this excellent collaboration ~ and no two poets more able to edify with such dedication to spiritual beauty and dignity.

    Class is in session. (got me a front row seat) Teach y'all.

    Space????

    So you need space huh?
    No I don't understand you.
    I don't believe you.

    Like snow in Summer...
    You deceived me with your lies.
    My heart has melted.

    We should discuss this...
    But all you want is your space.
    Babe...my heart is void.

    Don't play with my heart.
    Let's talk about the pieces.
    Fill your space with me.

    i need direction
    Only God above knows where
    sometimes- i don't care

    don't blame me for us
    you cry?? o.k i cry too
    it is not just you

    alright, so i've lied
    i've lied to you, me and us
    ...... whole thing is a lie!!

    though i didn't mean it

    truth is, i love you
    but look, i have so much stress...
    like you, leaving me

    That's another lie!!!
    Stress because I left you babe?
    YOU asked for space...right???

    I question your words.
    Your words are weeds...choking me.
    What are you planting?

    Dandelion Spores -
    I guess they needed some space.
    Just like you...they fled.

    see what i'm saying?
    that's what i hate about you
    you never listen

    you bring up my past
    .. times i didn't spend with you
    you don't let it go

    maybe that's the space i need

    i remember when
    our love was wheat among tares
    now it's just that- space.

    lesson:
    when a man needs "space"
    it doesn't mean you should leave
    just give him his space!

    you call my words weeds??
    your understanding's like thorns
    i must pluck them out.
