Havenít you all seen how hard Iíve tried?
Even after the one I loved most died?
I know now that you lied when you told me
That Iíd make it through this tortureÖ

Because Iím just existing
Anymore,
Seems Iím resisting lifeÖ
So, ignore
My helpless pleas
And see that Iím
Just a tattered wreck
Of something that someone selected
Years ago.
It was long ago.
And now Iím broken.
But havenít you all seen how hard Iíve cried?
Has anybody watched me when I sighed?
Even after the one I loved most diedÖ
I realize now that you lied
When you told me I could make it through this torture.


- And so it was that time stood still -
     (blink, breathe, stand, fight)

Oh but Dixie,
I'm not sure.
Time may suppress a wound.
But the affects, the pain, the still bound love exist in the heart forever.
I'll hold on though... seems I've gotta.
Thank you, for your compassion. Love you, too.

Always, Alyssa

Alyssa,

Your piece speaks very well of the pain..I understand and loved the writing..

Hang in there...you just never know what life is going to offer.

GG:  The fact that you're able to write about it is a good, healing thing.  Writing will also help you to be open to the other things that life has to offer...
Take care. ~K~

wow sorry I'm so late getting back to replies on these... wanted to reply though still...

Susan,
thank you and you're right, you never know what may come before you in life... sometimes though, things really are just plain bad...

Kahlill,
yep I found that once I was finally able to write about it, it helped alot. Not with making the pain go away,  but with understanding its fragility and just knowing what to do with it... thanks

Hey Shara?
thanks...

Sey,
thank you,

Always, Alyssa
