Ending an Emotionally Romantic Relationship (a Poem With Explanation)
Explanation of the Poem That Follows
Creative writing with poetry can bring hidden feelings to the surface and begin emotional healing. It can help one make sense of the confusing thoughts and hidden feelings that are buried deep inside of us.
We need to get in touch with the grief of a breakup and we need to understand the painful emotions that follow the loss of someone dear to us.
I found that I can do this by letting the various thoughts in my mind emerge in a poetic fashion. It helps to develop an understanding of what took place. It also conveys to the reader the essence of the romance and the emotions involved with the breakup.
I tend to become poetic when I experience strong feelings, especially when involved with a romantic relationship. This creative side of me only appears under these conditions.
I include an explanation below the poem describing the meaning of each stanza.
Synchronicity leaps on the very first day.
Much to discover and thoughts of what may
Be it a friendship or lovers to be
Sure is a mystery for you and me.
Our voices harmonized but never repeated.
Nevertheless, we were never conceited.
Three months go by with being ourselves.
More sharing continues and overwhelms.
A puzzling past that is hard to conceive.
The desire for explanation leaves little to believe.
Attempts to clear the confusion lead to dismay.
Saying Goodbye because there's nothing left to say.
The Meaning of Each Stanza
“Synchronicity leaps on the very first day.”
The relationship began with the discovery of similar interests, hence the synchronicity.
“Much to discover and thoughts of what may.”
We quickly discovered many common values and desires.
“Be it a friendship or lovers to be. Sure is a mystery for you and me.“
It started as a friendship, but wondered if we should keep it that way or move forward.
“Our voices harmonized but never repeated.”
We loved to sing together.
“Three months go by with being ourselves.”
In the beginning we each accepted one another as we were.
“More sharing continues and overwhelms.”
As more was shared, we both became overwhelmed with feelings.
“A puzzling past that is hard to conceive.”
As past lives and baggage emerged, trouble pursued.
“The desire for explanation leaves little to believe.”
Trust and distrust began to become an issue.
“Attempts to clear the confusion lead to dismay.”
Failure to communicate became more common.
“Saying Goodbye because there's nothing left to say.”
Finally giving up, knowing that nothing could be resolved.
