Is Love Hiding

broken20heart11How the hours change things. The night is so different from what is here now in this new day. Last night we were in love and today it seems to have evaporated away. What is real and what is not? Was last night love or illusion? Is love hiding or are we hiding love? JR

rumpled bed

The sound of sunshine shouts,
Across my window sill;
A drum that echoes through,
A world that once was still.

Gone with the morning;
Where did the feeling go?
What was here,
Is here no more;
Leaving only shadows
Of the night before.

Two daytime strangers wake
A long way from the night.
We couldn’t make the journey
From the dark to the light.

Gone with the morning;
What happens I do not know.
The bed is warm
Where we slept.
Sunshine came
And we were swept away,
Leaving us victims
Of the new day.

What was here,
Is here no more.
We are shadows
Of the night before.
I wish I knew
Why love just fades
Away and dies;
Like stars that live by night
And tumble from the skies.

I Thought I Could Imagine

broken20heart11The love in my heart does not care if we are together or not. You no longer being here does not diminish my feelings; that only increases my pain. I dreamed that you came back. One day I think you will, but will I still love and want you then? C.B.

I think you still love me,
but we can’t escape the fact
that I’m not enough for you.
I knew this was going to happen.
So I’m not blaming you…
I’m not angry, either.
I should be, but I’m not.
I just feel pain. A lot of pain.
I thought I could imagine
how much this would hurt,
but I was wrong.
Haruki Murakami

So Many Times

broken20heart11We’ve broken up and gotten back together so many times. You did things you should not have done and I forgave you. Each time I took you back my heart was open. But you finally did it; you hurt me so badly I can’t be with you anymore. J.B.

Just because you see me posting online
doesn’t mean I am feeling better.
I am in a ton of pain, but my choices
are to sit and cry or try to distract myself.
Posting encouragement for others
or being encouraged myself is how
I face one minute at a time
when everything hurts.

I Just Feel Pain

broken20heart11All your little secrets, deceptions and past unfaithfulness have accumulated into a heavy jagged weight in my heart. Now you just get mad when I question you. Maybe its time you had the freedom to find out what life is like without me. C.B.

No Boundary

broken20heart11Our is strong, but so much has happened to scar and injure it. Can we survive it all? We’re going to spend some time apart and I hope it brings healing to both of us. I can’t imagine life without you in it. There is no boundary between who I am and you any more. T.G.

When I think of you
I think of happiness…
Happiness you’ve brought into my life.
When I think of you
I think of tenderness…
The tenderness of our first kiss.
When I think of you
I think of caring…
And how much we care for each other.
When I think of you
I think of sharing…
Sharing all our thoughts and feelings.
When I think of you
I think of love…
Love I never thought I’d feel again.
When I think of love
I think of you…
I love you with all my heart.
