I feel as though I'm being punished
for what, I do not know,
but this feeling has been with me
since you said that "I must go."
It hurts here in my heart
not knowing your reasons why,
but a smile I wear on my face
although inside my heart does cry.

I know your hurting inside
and it's best that you went away,
but every breath I draw inside of me
whispers, please come back to stay.
I know that I'm being selfish;
that this is something you must do,
but how do I teach my heart
not to still be in love with you?


On the wings of words our spirits fly....and our souls are free.

Years spent teaching the heart to trust and love, then someone tells you it's now time to turn it off. I'm sorry!!!!
Oh so sad!!

felt every  word of this GS,
an emotional,honest poetic declaration of the heart...
much emoted in a few perfectly chosen words.
sad but beautiful.

tis not easy being the flame.
what some never see is--
sometimes ... most times ...
they are one in the same.

Sometimes it is the heart that teaches us....remain strong, it will work out, and if not it wasn't meant to be....

Oh, you know this is the hardest thing to do, to teach your heart to stop loving someone. If you get the answer, please let me know. Its been 7 months for me, and my heart feels exactly the same. Very sweet and well done write.
Take care.

Hang in there, GS.  It does get better with time and a little soul searching.  May you find the peace that you seek one day very soon.  Nice write.  

All writing comes
by the grace of God.

This is such a hard situation, GS...but you've shared it with us wonderfully...

sp  

to be with you...
I've tried to hide my passion,
but it's just no use...
piece by piece I lose it
when you walk in the room...

I have no need to be in your shoes
Nor do I desire your pain
But much luck to you
And much wisdom you now stand to gain
