WHY can’t you let it go?

WHY is it so hard to let go of your hurt?

  WHY can’t I let it go?

maybe because what I believed to be true and real was negated

and to let it go means there was NOTHING

so to let it go, means I had NOTHING



hard to live everyday.

It is  just one more brick in the wall

of rejection

I cling to the hurt

because it is a feeling

and better to have hurt feelings


no feelings

better to think someone could hurt you

than to think you were not even worth that

love was a nest

and a new beginning

I gave my best

and now that it is gone

emptiness remains

and pain is my song


New Territory


Detour (Photo credit: spike55151)

It’s a new land and I’ve no map.

It’s a new you and I don’t know how to find my way back.

To the you I was so sure I knew,

I didn’t realize that there was a curfew.

And now confusion and questions are my neighbors,

disappointment, rejection seem to be the daily flavors.

Your plan eliminates me…I am dismissed…

I didn’t know it was going to be like this.

It is was not your intent but it is my reality…

Naively I went along…then the message came so bluntly.
