Reading old love letters
forgetting to believe
you never loved me
my throat tightens
I swallow hard…resist
distract myself
from the memory

to sleep with your love, again
only to wake without it, still
would drive me mad

survival demands
I believe
you never loved me.

Oh Duncan, this just aches!  *Looks like it could be linked to mine too.*  We are both writing sad songs tonight.  Hugs.

"survival demands

I am nearly speechless after reading this line, Duncan. It says so much.

In truth we will all only believe that which we can live with, is something I decided lately.  You express that well.  Nicely done, Duncan.

Duncan,

       Oh This is so heartbreaking! The pain is so easily felt... I hope this is simply fiction ... and if it's not.. I send my strength to you. *squeeze*

Hugs,

                                                  would drive me mad
=============================================
(I call it "mad crazy")
Oh Poet Duncan....impact be thy name.................

I ask why you come here, you say just because
Could I live without it if I knew what it was
But it really dont matter when you look at me that way.

Duncan - You may hear that because somebody else denies the truth.  What better way to illustrate a total lack of character than to say, "Sure, I said I love you, but I lied and used you instead."?  The poem is well written.

*sigh* I know the feeling....we must convince ourselves that there was never love on their part and then the pain is not so great for otherwise the confusion and not understanding can drive us crazy. **big hugs** My heart goes out to you, Duncan.

Love I leave with you whether it is in your life now or yet the essense of your dreams.

The truth is indeed too realistic and hard to accept. But it is better to accept the truth and go on with our lives, than to be in denial, eluding ourselves into weaving our dreams with the lies.

(tears fall down my cheeks) Oh Duncan, this is so so sad, my heart cries out to your lost love and pray with all my heart you have found true new love to replace the pain and erase the lies of those love letters! (sad sigh) Our hearts go out to you, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Duncan, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Every once in a while I stumble across such well written pain.  It's hard to comment on, saying it's good.  But this is very good.  Here's too less pain in the world.

Duncan, sorry you are feeling enough pain to write this. You know, I can't decide what hurts more, to think they never loved you, or that they did, and somehow you or they ruined it. All of it hurts..
You wrote this well.
