    that a broken heart is far from painful,
    it is devastating

    that pain remains, and the sobbing continues
    long after the tears cease to fall

    That life goes on without me,
    should I choose not to participate

    that faith brings me joy,
    and with joy comes hope

    that life is an adventure
    to be embraced with courage

    that I am never alone,
    I am mother, daughter, sister, friend and teacher

    that I am loved in spite of,
    and often because of, who I am.

    All of this I have learned and with it I look to the future and all the wonders in store for me!


    I wrote this in 2005 after a very painful divorce and a very enlightening recovery from the pain.

    That was wonderful. I commend your writing skills.

    Do you publish?

    Thank you :D

    I do not publish, but maybe someday - I've never really thought of it. I do have more, but not too many that I share; I get really emotional (there's a suprise!) when I write and so a lot of what I put on paper becomes really personal. I will try to find something else post worthy ;)

    There is also the problem that a lot of what I write is in Spanish, like the one I put on the Spanish forum.

    Dear Lord, hear this prayer
    The words of a lonesome heart

    Dear Lord, head the cries
    of a humble soul torn apart

    What is it within me that I fail to understand?
    Why is it that I fall, and yet I stand?

    Am I cursed to be alone?
    Or am I waiting to be born?

    Please send me a sign, just lead the way
    to a brighter future without pain and dismay!

    I wrote this in 2004, two days after walking out on an eight year relationship that left me devastated. After a while and with the help of wonderful friends that never left my side and called me daily to make sure I was ok, I recovered and wrote the first piece I posted on this thread. I guess this is the prequel.

    You have to submit that to a magazine, an editor, or something to that effect. HAVE TO.

    thanks! but in cruising (or trolling?) the board recently I came across works by others and they were way better than anything I can come up with, especially not on the spot, lol!

    I think what is attractive to you is that when I do write I am usually in some sort of emotional frenzy and I write exactly what I am feeling and thinking, so its a more 'real' piece than something made up for the sake of writing. Usually these poems are part of my journal ... I can copy some journal entries that might make you tear up ... maybe I will start a faux-blog on this forum ... maybe not, ESTP rambilngs can be confusing and very scary ;)
