Gone

She is gone…

Taking her fragrance with her, taking

My heart with her…

She is gone…

Like a bird she has taken flight and altered my

life…

She is gone…

The air has changed; every breath now brings me memory pains…

She is gone…

Loneliness has embrace my existence and

seeks to set up residence in my heart…

Her walk, my fault… Her walk, my lack of communication…

Blind vision and no trust in the power of love led to hemorrhaging

In the relationship…

Finger pointing, disagreements and infrequent physical contact

Led to departure and the sounds of bags packing…

She

Is

Gone…

Misery following me…Memories haunting me…Inside my soul

A huge hole and echoes of her name continue to bounce off the wall of my heart…

Like an apparition, like morning dew

She

Is

Gone….

Took all my joy with her…

Took all my strength with her...

Took the music out my soul with her...

She

is

Gone...

Words so many of us can relate to.

Thank's You, I took this from the eyes of other's who bare witness to what happens when love goes wrong.

Poetic Word Bird, Sounds like a love relationship that went bad and come to a typical end. I wrote about this in 2 or even 3 of my hubs. Believe it or not heartbreak is good when it happens because no one lives without it. It may happen 3 or more times in a person's lifetime before learning how to avoid more of them. You now must regroup so that you can move on normally without being afraid of having relationships. Curiously, how many times have you experienced breaking up like that or is this the 1st?

This poem is amazing. I stepped into it and lost myself, beautiful.

Beautiful introspective expression of love and learning. I am grateful that you have grown through the experience, learned the lesson, healed and transformed to now live a better reality of love in action.

Stay Blessed Word Bird,

Matters of the heart only heal when they are revealed..Pain don't know how to sit still...Thank you for your comments.

Uhhh, so painful. I can feel this one with each word I read, Poetic. I almost welled up. Immaculate writing and sharing of a lonely, brokenness that cuts deep after a breakup. Excellent job, voted up, beautiful, and sharing.
