Still hurting like that day,

There is no cure; there is no way.

I feel it deeply inside my heart,

My self-esteem is torn apart.

 

I can’t forget; I can’t forgive,

I’m building up my will to live.

I’m just moribund; agonizing,

What you’ve done is paralyzing.

 

I’m stuck; I’m hurting; I’m a mess,

I feel this anger in excess.

What can I do; what can I say?

My love for you just makes me stay.

If only getting over someone was as easy as changing channels on a TV - find something else to capture your attention in a matter of seconds instead of spending years struggling with the pain and confusion.
Well done, Lisbeth. Strong words and stronger emotions.

I really admire, how you summed up the pain of what the heart tends to go through, and the aftermath of its silent cause when reflected through the eyes of a woman. Nicely stated!

Love and Hugs,
Kemy

Sometimes it is impossible to just forgive and forget. I know that all too well. You have captured the raw emotions of a broken heart very well. Simply loved it!

LeParadisNoirPoetique

Me and you are the Ying and Yang of being tortured. I'm starting to feel that there is no escape for us. Your landscape is always changing, and it isn't giving you the sky that you deserve. Your poem reflects perfectly that you will never forgive or forget, and you shouldn't, because it seems that this person is an unforgivable sinner. Life is like one big movie, and there is always a cast of people who will paralyse you. I truly hope that your heart will not become paralysed, because I just want to see you honestly OK. If you can make life just your movie, you as the director can cut out these unforgivable sinners from your masterpiece. Exceptional poem of emotion, and your rhymes are a dreamflight. You write everything from the heart, and you will last forever, while these people will not.

You will come to realise that we are all human beings, we all have our faults. Whether you forgive and forget, that's a personal thing. Life still goes on. The poem is sad, but written well.

But love can’t be the only reason. You have to love yourself more. Fighting for something is good. Who wants to walk away from something saying they gave up easily? But is this stronger than you? Have you done all you can? Are there more positives than there are negatives? And if so, do the positive aspects overpower the negative ones? Love can’t be it all.
