I am writing this as a tribute to a great man I know. He only made one mistake in his life, and that was to love someone who wasn't free to be his. He is a beautiful person, inside and out. So basically what I am trying to say by this poem is.......
Please let go of what isn't meant to be, learn to love someone else. You can, in time, I know! You'll be ok, I promise. Please just believe that I have only ever wanted the best for you. You deserve so much more than I could ever be free to give. And it is unfair to you, to let you continue loving me, when clearly it will only bring you pain. You know I worry about you, please don't internalize this, find someone to talk to, cry, scream, I don't care, but just get done with it and move forward. Step by step by step by step.
I will never forget Twin Rocks, or what you have done to make me a better person, thank you for my life.....I owe you, so does my family.

if you look deep
deep inside yourself
you'll find a well
of cool, cool water
from which
to draw your strength

it's suicidal to your heart
to wait for the rain
which rarely falls
on this desert

relax and let go
of the pain
my dear friend
and open your heart
to the wonders
and beauty
and sanctuary
of your own soul

never take less
than the very best
strive for the goal
of peace in your heart

find someone worthy
to give your heart to
and love freely, wildly
and passionately

let the feelings
that threaten to
engulf you
into the butterfly
that I know you to be

I hope that you both know that I love you dearly - and I'm here for you - either of you - whenever you might need a friend.....

Izzy: Bless your heart sweetheart, but when some people love, they can't see beyond love and everything associated with those feelings...eventually what will happen is that you will bury the love and communication begins to get harder but those feelings still need to be talked about...kind of like when someone dies because in essense that is what happens...but you can't ask someone to stop loving you, they love you without permission to do takes time and people to talk to and take your mind off everything, the memories, music, name it...why do I say all this?  Cause I'm there myself and it's hard, hardest thing I've ever done in my life...the way you want to keep saying "you love" to the thought they can't love you otherwise they wouldn't want you to suffer...but, I guess we only think in terms of our own needs at times like this...I tell myself regularly that I'm selfish to want someone to love me when it will cause that person pain, time, good friends, and above all else, remember it's not because you're not worth loving but circumstances and a 1000 and 1 other problems that makes love impossible for some...I'm here if it helps...I may have to edit this because I spoke from the heart and haven't thought through what I'm saying...

But it's not easy for either party in this situation...both go through the worst kind of hurt and guilt...keep talking, keep busy and cry as often as you need..

Big HUGS to all concerned

I don't think loving someone can be a mistake. We are here on this earth to love each other. You are both better in some way for having loved each other. Though it's very hard right now, don't ever forget that you've touched each others lives in a special way. We are here for you both!

This is deeply moving, and I wish the best for the situation.

Hugs, K.

(And I agree with PdV - we are here to love each other, it can take many forms I think)

I have read this poem and the comments several times. I would like to help but I feel that anything I would say would be received in a negative manner. I do not know enough about the situation to delve into it and give advice. I do know that it is a law of physics that any action creates and equal opposite reaction. That's what makes space travel possible. I will go no farther than that.

Whoever you are, sir, I feel for you. I've been there and it is not a good place to be. In fact, it's a rotten place to be. Time, and space, are your only allies. Let them help you, for your own sake.

there are only two ways to go about doing something after a break up (as I assume this is through wording).  First is that you can mope around and never move on.  This option leads to depression and eventually can include drug use, criminal activities (stalking, harrassment, etc...), and even suicide.  You will never be happy if someone is trapped in a situation they don't want just because you want them there.  I've dwelled there and it made me the type of person that I really didn't like.  Always watching them, always wondering what they are doing and if they aren't going around behind you.  It wears you down to do that.  The other option is to continue on with your life.  If you continue on with life, then you will find something that makes you happy.  Whether it be something you already do, or something you find out about later on, it makes no difference.  The entire point is that you will be happy.  I never claimed to have all the answers, just my opinion.  I've made alot of bad decisions in my life that through some weird twist by God has made me a better person instead of one completely destroyed.  He has taken me from the desert of lonliness to the oasis of friendship time and again.  I am now the happiest I have ever been, and with some of the best people I've ever known.  All because of God and my not wanting to sit around and think about things I can't change.  You can't make someone else change their mind once it's already been made.  You can gain their respect and admiration for being able to accept something and move on even when it tears you up inside.  Something will always come up that will get you.  That's the way life is.  the only way you can get through life being happy is to take it and keep going.  To put it in some younger terms, it's just emotional baggage.  leave it with the desk clerk and let him deal with it.  You don't have to take it with you.  

Sorry for the length, but I'm just home on leave, I'm not going to be here long enough to send email replies or anything like that.  I like being a friend, and though I do say things that get to be offensive, I never mean to be offensive, just honest.  So I'll let this go and wish you all a merry christmas.  and remember, no matter how bad it gets, it can always get much worse.

 shine a light so bright that all can see
and you will find the joys that echo within me

A beautiful poem, as usual  
The gift of your words over the past two years has been very precious to me.

I will reply more fully by email when I have had time to better compose my thoughts. Until then, however, I will only say that loving you was no mistake.

Very touching piece, Izzy.  You know my feelings well on this manner I know, but first and foremost I want you to know I am always here for you.  My heart goes out to both of you right now.  I pray peace will find you both.

Unsanctioned Love

A love that's born of sudden storm
Of that which came not of the mind
Is one of life's mysterious moments
But truly is a gift divine

It matters not what course it takes
What steam it follows, how swift the flow
Nor what the fathom of the depth
Nor what the hue in morning's glow

Love cannot be taught a measure
Its own volitient wing it flies
But it never needs apology
And no dishonor should it decry

Unsanctioned love in all its longing
Should be cherished for its worth
Whether or not it consumated
For the time it has on earth

No guilt or shame should pass its doorway
So let it be there in itself
Celebrate its silent presence
Allowed to consumate itself

Pray that he moves on, finds love, and always celebrates the love he has for you
