A Poetic Story About Ending an Emotional Love Relationship
Explanation of the Poem That Follows
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.
For the sake of healing, 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 have found that creative writing can help make sense of the confusing thoughts and hidden feelings that are buried deep inside of us.
I know that in my case I can do this by letting the various thoughts in my mind emerge in a poetic fashion. It helps develop an understanding of what took place and conveys to the reader the essence of the romance and the emotions of the breakup.
The following short poem is a story about breaking up and ending a relationship of a short-lived romance.
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.
