After Awhile

After awhile
a long while
a very long while
a very very long while
I started to realize
I began to understand
I could more clearly see
and I started to accept
the truth about me...

sadly
reluctently
with a great amount of hurt and pain
within the essence of a broken heart
through the acceptance of a loss of hopes and dreams

that it was me that was pursuing her
not her pursuing me

and so now I know
that I must let go
of my dream
a dream of her and me
a dream not meant to be...

Goodby my love
Goodby my dream
I must move
forward towards my future
forward to who I am today
and what I will become
as a man living
in the present.

I'm happy for you if you truly mean that you have had an awaking, otherwise there will be many sleepless night still in your future.

I understand this so well... Such acceptance carries an agonizing cost! I hope you're successful in moving forward and going on to other dreams. *S*

James,

You are a strong man to allow such a realization and then let go of the dream.  Your poetry has a place in this world - I have learned a lot about love reading your thoughts and poems.

Thank you for sharing.

I am in the very same thing james ... I still feel a void somewhere deep down inside ... I can't write .. I can't concentrate ... but yes sometimes its just right to let it go ... I think this poem is going to help me get out of it ..
especially the lines 'i was pursuing her she wasn't pursuing me' ... I have always been a fan of your writings ... thanks for sharing this ...
