That's so sad
It's hardest to find the courage to do the things we know are the worst for us.
Nice rythm Elvira

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll be among the stars.
-Unknown-
So let the sun beat down upon my face,
It's warmth will dry my tears.

elvira, so sorry you are in pain. such a difficult situation you have written about.
I know somebody going through this same thing. she decided it was best to let go also.
there are some wonderful SINGLE men out there. keep the faith!

It's so easy to know what needs to be done... so hard to do the deed. Your poem speaks that agony very well!!

This was very poignant - and good.

As to why a woman wants a married man
That is very easy to understand.
We maried men have been trained,
A single man is unrestrained.

We married men know how to please,
We've learned by falling to our knees.
We don't argue, we don't fight.
And we always let you sleep at night.


well... I apologize for that - it just slipped out - I do not think your situation is enviable. Been there - living with that. Never again.

You know Elvira,
On the other side of the coin, it's extremely hard when there are reasons (I know it's not right), but if you're happy, then let it be, if it makes you miserable, then end it...pretty simple, but not really!!!

Wonderfully written Elvira, although such a sad situation.

That is a sad poem Elvira. I don't know what is sadder, the words you use, or the fact that you bite your tongue and don't say them.
A nice poem all the same, and a powerful one.

You write so well and you have a new friend.
You know what they say, smile and the world smiles with you.

Isn't it amazing how such a deep and strong passion can make you feel so fragile? Not wanting to settle for less and yet unable to let go. May you find the happiness you desire.
