Amoung the stars in the sky, shines one so high,
That star is you, my wife we part,
stories told, shattered hearts.
Another chance, another time, I can't face you being mine.

No contact between us, my hand reaches out,
I called for you with desperate shouts,
Turned away by foe-in-laws, I have no choice,
the crying has ceased in my voice.

Time to travel, time to live,
the affair you had I can never forgive,
Never expected this,it came from the blue,
I thought our love was deep and true.

I'll die if you said go,
I'd scream if you said stay,
as I have suffered in many ways.

Rich~
Such a sad thing to have to write about.
But, if forgiveness isn't in one's heart ..
then you're right .. it's time to move beyond the pain.
Best of everything to you.

I know little about love, but more about pain.
A powerful and sad poem. The only words of help I can offer is that how ever much the pain hurts it is not worth letting to take over you. I hope that tomorrow is a brighter day for you.

Powerful words my friend. . .

The pain is evident. . . time to bring up the sails and chart the ocean again. . . good luck to you my friend. . .

Very intense my friend...I hope you are doing o.k.   I also have an issue with infidelity.  I based my choice on the total picture.  I lost all hope for our marriage before the infidelity...so I figured that was her final message to me...and don't get me wrong...I believe forgiveness is important...but choices are important also...and she made her choice..and it wasn't me.    James

It hurts me deep,
the wretched pain as I sleep,
slicing away my love, crushing my heart,
for now I am destined to part.

Rich,

A very touching poem, the pain is evident.....I hope you find the strength to move on with your life and never give up hope on finding love again.....

Remember, there is nothing time can't heal.

All the best

Hi slashed one......
Do not lose hope, have faith in the goodness of people, cause they are there, and life is too short to waste on people who are not worth our being...

I thank you all for your words of comfort,
yes I loved, I supported,I cared for my wonderful wife, but Alas 'tis no more.

Seperation leads toa whole mix of feelings, and if anyone reads this - remember to always talk about problems with your love!

Pain ebbs away slowly and the sun still shines.

Rich~
Very sad, you will learn to forgive but to forget is entirely different. I've been there and it is an extremely difficult time, you will need strength so I'm sending some your way.

Oh Rich...
wow...powerful words - I understand pain also...there are many things one feels compelled to say of comfort, but I will just say - I admire your strength.

I also understand the pain and hurt and your powerful poem brings back memories

Never give up hope, for I have found a new love stronger than any before.

It's hard to trust after something like this happens because you still love the person who lost your trust.  No one can tell you what to do, or how to heal.  You just have to remember that the person who hurt you was flawed in some way.  The flaw is what provoked them to be untrue, not you or anything about you.

crikey!,

If we all sat down together, we could cry a river....

I feel the hurt, the pain of marridge broken.
I know I will survive this, but I wonder if my other (ex)half suffers the rollercoaster I am on..

Hi Rich I'm back
I read your reply above and I just wanted to say that I don't think you gave your all for nothing as you must have dearly loved each other at some stage and you must have some fond memories that you will always treasure. The hurt is tremendous I know and the deception is the hardest to get through but when we love someone we do give our all at the time, never think that that is a bad thing. In time your heart will heal maybe not all the way but enough for you to move on and make a new start with someone who deserves your trust and love and you hers. I hope in time your heart learns to love again.
Love and Hugs
Tracie
