Reunited...

As the days grow cooler now,
I start to face the question, How?
It's been so long that I can't hear your voice,
But as the day draws near I'm left with little choice.
To tell you now just how it was,
That you took my heart and then hit pause.

You never knew and I don't blame you for that,
But in misdirected anger I still hissed and spat.
On that day - so late in November,
The sights the smells - your smile I still remember.
Merry and Jovial we relaxed by the pool,
The evening breeze welcomingly cool.
As the sun set and the sky filled with stars,
I started to feel like I was heading for Mars.
The feeling was alien overwhelming me so,
A feeling of love ...
I couldn't let that show!
And I'd never let it go!
It tore at my heart and split me in two,
Surely this could not have been all because of you?

It's closer now the time we'll meet again,
I know it won't be easy - a meeting of pain.
I have my plans and I'm sure you have yours,
But I'm not going to force open those doors.
I'll tell you my truth on the hold that you had,
It was not a craze or in passing a Fad.
It was what it was but I want to move on,
But that's now not to say that I want you gone.
Understanding and Acceptance is part of us all,
It's just how you cradle the rise and the fall.

It was never your fault it was me through and through,
I should have just come out and said it to you.
I loved him then and would have given my all,
But time and again I stood up just to fall.

I'll never forget you I don't think that I could,
But moving on is something I should.
I'm not looking for feet sweeping kisses and a lifetime together,
I just want you to know my life isn't over.

What I'd like you to consider is to offer the poems to me for publication rather than simply posting them in the forum. Of course you may not consider them as poems per se, but as cries for help? I don't really know either way.

Hi Morning timmy Smile Sending them through for publication sounds super thanks, how would I do this?

This poem specifically just popped into my head after our 'chat' on the forum the other day.
It is done in my mind now, I am going to tell him one way or the other. However like you said I am not forcing anything on him, I just want him to know - How It WAS Smile
I'm getting over it slowly and learning to build back up.

Much like what J.K Rowling says in her speech - 'The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination' - at Harvard a few years back "Rock Bottom is the best foundation on which to build the rest of your life"
(Or something like that... Link herein if you'd like to check - http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2008/06/text-of-j-k-ro wling-speech/ the video is also on www.ted.com/talks if you keen for 21 mins of inspiration Smile )

Email them to me, with lines separated by the new line character and verses separated by a paragraph break. As for being at rock bottom, you have far further to fall. May as well stop before you get there.
