Did some spring cleaning the other day.
Marked a box called "feelings" and put it away.

Tucked it carefully inside high on shelf.
Lest no one disturb it, not even myself.

Please don't go near it, please don't you tread.
For if it disturbed, I think I'd rather be dead.

Than live those "feelings" again.
There is just to much pain.

Told you I loved you right out loud.
Nothing I said made me feel very proud.

Told you I loved you, then I had to leave.
Knowing in my heart, I would be the one to grieve.

For in the end I knew I paid the cost.
I gave you my heart, and I had lost.

Now the realization kicks in.
Knowing you never loved me, and knowing I will never see you again.

Some things are better left unsaid.
There is now a hollow in my heart and in my head.

I'm sorry, I know how this feels.  Good luck to you, I'm sure one day you'll find the right one.

Nice post Gemini.  Although sad.  Sometimes we just need to tuck those memories away and move on.  Hope things work out for you.

How sad...it would be nice if we could pack all those feelings up and never have to remember or deal with them again, but I wonder in doing so would we ever learn any of life's important lessons?

Some times 'srping cleanings' are needed to be done, but like Ruth I agree that if those feelings are left to never deal with them again do we really learn anything?  Sometimes (I have JUST learned this) that just facing those feelings can help with getting over forgetting them, instead of just packing them up and harboring them somewhere close.  I dunno, just my way of thinking I guess *shrugs*  I enjoyed the poem though!!

tulip, Eloise, Paul H. and dsnyder:
Thank you for your thoughts, I appreciate them.  
hoot_owl_rn & Echo Rhayne:
I know in time I will come to learn that there are some lessons here, but also know I have to get through this healing and grieving process first.  Thank you for your input and concern.
The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears.
