A Poem About Breaking Up
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 in a creative way 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 pieces fall together in my mind. These pieces appear on the surface as a rhythm set to narrative poetry.
So without further ado, here's my poem - telling a quick story about a short-lived romance that came and went, and the reasons why.
Synchronicity leaps at 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.
