When you turn away from my loving gaze,
with disgust and contempt in your eyes,
it cuts like a knife.
Deep and true,
the cut may never heal.
Once upon a time, you might have reflected the wonder and awe I saw in you.
But now you possess knives in your glare.
Severing you from me.
Chopping away the memories.
Slicing the feelings you might have once felt,
into little ribbons of hate.
Bleeding ribbons of angry love.


 "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

May I offer you this in your time of sorrow

"Today is a day of change for me
I'm no longer looking back
I'm going on to find my destiny
my future to attack
No more waiting for things I've left behind
no more living in the past
I know someday I'll find true love
In the meantime I'm gonna have a blast"

Ouch Skittles, what a wonderful comparison.
And, I feel your pain.

Use life's experiences to learn from -
brush yourself off and move on --)

Take Care
