    The burning orange rings of the smoldering sun
    Have finally set on our love
    And I look above
    To reminisce in it’s glow
    That offers no apologies
    For the broken hearts
    It takes with it.

    Nor the Sun or the Moon
    Make apologies
    For anything they take with them!

    They only promise
    To rise again.


    The sun is not my friend.



    Displacement over comes me
    As my mind tries to make sense of it all
    And I look to my wall
    Of calendar months gone by
    9 months
    I cry
    Wanting to
    Run into your arms
    And glue back a plate
    That has been dropped a million times
    There are too many pieces now…
    Unable to hold anything
    Except the tears that slide into the cracks
    And off the edge
    To a cold and familiar ground…


    I look around for you...
    No longer can you be found.
    The world looks so different
    Now that your not around
    But I will admit....
    I smile more now
    Than I frown


    I never thought
    That I could love someone
    As much as I loved you…
    I surprised myself.
    At first, I did not know what to do
    Oh, setting sun!
    Your no friend of mine!

    But everyday

    You made good on your promise

    To rise again

    And with time

    you illuminated my sky

    slowly gave me reasons not to cry

    Gave me new wings, so that I may fly

    And make peace

    With your setting sun

    Good-bye’s.


    The Sun is Now a Friend of Mine.

    AS BRIGHT AS THE SUN SETS
    UPON YOU
    ALLOW THE RAYS TO PENETRATE AND HEAL YOU
    NEVER TURN FROM THE SUN
    FOR IT'S LIFE GIVING ENERGY
    IS SURROUNDING THEE ABOVE
    CUDDLED IN THE BOSSOM
    OF LOVE
    :hearts4:
    MY FRIEND​

    i felt the same way

    cursed the "sun" and all

    you're too strong to give up

    and i don't expect anything less from you

    stay strong, what is, IS

    everything doesn't appear to be going how we want it to

    but in some quirky way it actually is

    it took me a long time to understand that

    hopefully it won't take you as long as it did me

    peace

    stop beating on yourself

    IT'S NOT YOU

    trust me

    Hi Apple...


    Each
    rise of the sun
    a new day has begun to
    distance us from yesterday's pain and
    sorrow and envision a chance to change our
    tomorrow

    I adore the sun as I do the sincerity in your expression.

    I felt these lines, in particular:
    People can become habit, when even a welcome change is hard to do, because of how good the relationship used to feel. Your expression was on point poetess.

    To say that I loved that piece, is a understatement,
    But this smilies avatar actually expresses it better
