    The art of walking alone in a crowd
    When everyone is so used to seeing you with him
    The notion that you just left your best friend and maybe the one
    the single triumph over the fear of being single
    The emotional know how to know how
    to not get emotional
    ( Wait I like that line so I'll say it again)
    The Emotional know how to know how not to be emotional
    The goodbyes that you prepared for
    The same ones you used to be scared for
    The day you gave back the ring
    Because you realized that without trust it don't really mean
    a thing
    the strength to look in his eyes and have him look away
    Why beacuse uncertainty is running hot in his veins
    the smarts to know that he can't hurt you
    Any more or less than you can hurt him
    the satisfaction in knowing
    you knew when to say when
    the comfort in knowing that
    When the dust clears and the new day dawns
    It may sting a little but you still know how to move on
    The brilliance in seeing that you were wise enough
    to get up and walk out because he didn't know what he had
    the happiness in being glad and
    the never wanting to go back
    Because you deserve more than that
    The art of be
    lonely
    is no longer the feeling
    Now I am
    Free to express
    The art of
    BE

    I had the notion to just write the usual piece but he gave me a reason to love single and to be honest single loves me so I'm not worried I have a lifted head i go for the gold and I like being the only one in my bed. And nothing he could ever do could change that.

    This is a really nice write. You would be amazed at
    the number of people who do not know how to be alone
    or single. They feel they have to be with someone
    all the time. They go from one relationship to another
    without giving themselves time to heal, breathe, or
    anything else. There's nothing wrong with being
    single and free lovin'. Very nice scribe.

    Much luv
