Ending a Passionate and Emotional Relationship (Told In Poetry)
I tend to become poetic when I experience strong emotional feelings. I don't know why this creative side of me only appears under these circumstances. It's probably a result of the need to heal emotionally. I think that writing creatively can help make sense of the confused hidden emotions deep inside of us.
We need to get in touch with the grief and we need understand the painful emotions that follow the loss of someone dear to us.
I know that in my case I can do this by letting the various thoughts develop in my mind to emerge with some understanding of what took place. Then these thoughts appear on the surface as a rhythm set to narrative poetry.

Much to discover and thoughts of what may
Be it a friendship or lovers to be
Sure is a mystery for you and me.
