Shattered

We so desperately
hold on to any pieces
of love that we shared.

Even when our love is shattered
and pieces are scattered everywhere
we still hold on and we still care.

But someday
we will have to let go with a sigh.
Cause love may take a long time
to go away but even love can die.

Hi jmlee12345
To let go of something is too difficult and I feel. Why it is that way when we still hold so much love ? I guess pieces can be grouped with faith and care and I don't know why I still believe it. I'm sorry its just my idea.

Sincerely
A_L

Thanks for your comment Amazon_Lover.  No need to apologize about your experiences with love.  We all have our own opinions and experiences.  In my experiences I have always lost everyone that I love...probably my fault.  I still have hope that love is real and I feel like if I could find someone that valued me and accepted me as I am that would be love to me.  Of course I would feel the same way about them.   James

Love will come your way James.....One day you will be walking along and then "BAM" you will fall and be totally completely lost in love.  I guess it is being shattered too in a way.  This is a moving poem with feeling.....Time heals all Best wishes  

 It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

So true James ... sometimes we hold on to love too long for fear we'll never find it again.  You will though ... it is real, and with a heart as tender as yours, you will find it.  Well done.

Best wishes,
/Kit

James,
Mourn not at the loss of love, for another one will come around to hold your tender feathers together, creating new wings for you to fly high...

you have written a heart-felt poem, here.

My best regards to you,
Sudhir.

 Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a fight.
Hey you, out there on your own,
Sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall,
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home....

by Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) - The Wall

***In my experiences I have always lost everyone that I love...probably my fault***

---No more than 50% James...so don't beat yourself up for all of it.---


***I still have hope that love is real and I feel like if I could find someone that valued me and accepted me as I am that would be love to me.  Of course I would feel the same way about them.   James***

---THAT IS LOVE, hon...seeing someone's value and accepting them as they are.---


James...The wanting/needing of love, does not die. There is someone for you.Keep looking and she will find you...that's the way it happens.Just be yourself...you sound like a nice guy to me.

Thank you ethome, First_Night, Kit, Sudhir, Magnolia, and ParisGirl.  
I was thinking about when you break up with someone you love even though physically they are gone...you still have all the memories and feelings..they are still alive in your heart...even if your heart is broken..and you don't want to let go...and it seems like the effects of love take a long time to go away...and if we hold on too long we feel the pain of love or sorrow of love...so we let our love die...this is only my experience.
Magnolia you have a way with words that makes me feel better.
I am mounrning lost opportunities to love in my past and also opportunities I have right now that may or may not work out as expected.
Actually I am in love with Lena.
ParisGirl are you from Paris?  
James
