END

NUMB.
AGAIN. LEFT
IN THE COLD.
NO MORE APART
THAN YESTERDAY
THOUGH MORE ALONE.

DUMB.
NO; BEREFT.
NOTHING TOLD.
WHY SHRED THE HEART
THAT WOULD HAVE STAYED?
THE SOUL IS SEWN

SHUT.
AGAIN. NOT
OPENING
THE DOOR TO START
THAT GAME AGAIN,
THAT PAIN, MY FRIEND.

JUST...
KEEP YOUR HEART
SUFFERING--
IT'S NOT MY PART.
IT FIN'LLY ENDS.



to v.j.t.

RE:

All day long I've had the joyfull sense of ONE digging thru my words.
This poem was penned first thing this morn, to another.
Then a note to the prior ONE, (coming shortly via email :D ), saying today was one for ending old, distracting dusty ways.

SO MOTE IT BE...Cygnus

Oh, ouch...and I'm sorry...and I hope it heals clean and swift.

Shade and Sweetwater,

There is no healing needs be done-- the vjt responsible has played Swan as a yo-yo for a decade and a half. That he-- I-- let it continually proceed, cyclic, is beyond tolerant.
Love is, but will no longer remain game. This mouse is out. Elsewhere, kitty.

String severed; Yo-Yo rolls to Yew... as it should be.

Wow Cygnus, sorry about this. Sounds like a knife to the heart. Don't have any original words of wisdom for you. Hang in there. If you need to talk I'm here for you.

Felinae said...

I'm sorry that you have to go through this my friend, it is never easy, if you need to talk, you know how to find me.

Hugs-n-Smiles~Felinae~

Livia-- much, much appreciated, Lady.
there ain't no hurt. Relief. That says it better.

Thank you for the comment-- and offer, Lady Indica.

So... here I come..

"New places of faces..." ...

Indeed, SpottedWolf.

Thank you for the compliment. And .. for the beyond.

Sarah said...

Sometimes the stepping away is a relief. I can certainly understand this. I hope you are doing well here and breathing.
Blessings, Sarah

Sarah-- thank you, Lady.
there is a line in the Celtic Woman song "Caledonia" that goes:
"Lost the friends I needed losing..."
Things are EXCELLENT here.
THANK YOU for taking the time to look at these writings, Lady S...
