How could I have missed it ... I was looking right at you and still I didn't see,
I never saw it coming ... never saw you walking right out from under me.

I know I never looked away ... and this aint about love making me blind ...
its about wanting somebody so much that you completely lose your mind.

God, it was just so amazing to be on the receiving end of you ...
I could have just stayed here forever taking in the beauty of your view.

There is still so much of you left here inside of me ...
every place you touched me left a mark ... made a memory.

For just a little while I thought I finally had contentment in sight ...
but now all my dreams are replaying in slow motion, black and white.

All I can taste are the things Im doing without ...
I guess I thought if I held you close enough ... it would quiet all the doubt.

I know we had no right in trying to hold on ...
some things aren't meant to be,
it's just that I got so used to you lying here next to me.

Now I'm alone, yet it's like your still here in this bed ...
how do I get you out of my heart, and out of my head.

And I'm not sure but I think a person can die from this kind of ache,
just how much can a heart bend before it finally breaks.

How do you get over someone who has gotten under your skin,
how do you let go when its something you've held so damn deep within.

Some days I wake up and it feels just like I been kicked in the chest,
yet there's no anger here ... under the circumstances we both did our best.

Even now ... I'm still sitting here completely in awe of you ...
and I know that from this point on ...
there will always be a little part of you in everything I do.

Dearest Jan; This poem is so beautifully romantic and sad. I'm human, so would you please e-mail me and tell me this story? Only if you want.
I love your poetry and this one is heavenly!

Janet, another powerful poem filled emotional honesty. Fantastic,  

How do you get over someone who has gotten under your skin,
how do you let go when its something you've held so damn deep within.

Janet, this read like a soft country song to me. Questioning, sad and beautiful to hear. lately i've been letting Sigmound Freud take apart poems and get to the real issue, maybe i'll let him out again. He just has this thing about everything relating to sex or something. Like thats all the women think about or want, but I know they just want to talk.....
Great emotional poem, loved it.... hey Sig got any comments....
He'll get bact to ya. Run.

     My dear, You leave me in awe.  It was not too long ago that I was asking myself the very same questions.  I know what you mean in this one.  It is hard to see until it is gone.  Very powerful piece, dear!



Love Ya~

 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

Hi, Butterfly Slippers.
I'm human, and gator and squirrel and who knows what else! But you don't need to e-mail the story -- it's all right here in precise, heartfelt language.

Glad to have read it. It made me smile as much as reflect. What more could you want in a poem? So thanks.

Yet another lovely piece created by you. I understand the words you write oh to well.

You got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
and show the world all the love in your heart
Then people are gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That your beautiful as you feel.~~~ Carol King

Remarkable, JM....I stand in awe of you once again.  Such beauty, such sorrow, but without anger or bitterness.  This is exactly how I felt before I found it in me to let a very special person to me go.  Thank you for showing us a part of your heart and letting me relate to it so closely yet again.

Oh, I've been there.  I've been there.  My heart aches for you.  Beautiful, haunting, poignant poem.  My favorite of what I've seen of yours so far!  Very strong.  Well written.

JM-

wow. i am left speechless. this was fantastic and captivating. (i sound like siskel and ebert.) you just vented for me!! i printed out a copy to put on the bulletin board. or my "inspiration board". this is truly great.

someone told me once "you vent with class". it is one of the most gracious compliments i ever received or could bestow. i'm so happy to tell you that, girl, YOU vent with class!
