    I know I need to let go...


    with that ring
    I was bled
    when you led me to
    the wedding bed

    bouquets fade
    and veils tear
    and daily life
    can grind and wear

    you said the vows
    but those were lies
    for many women
    caused you sighs

    you broke my heart
    my mind
    my soul
    then left me shattered and unwhole

    I’ve nothing left
    to give another
    no trust, no love
    no self, no other

    how much longer
    until I heal?
    how much longer
    with this grief?
    how much longer
    will that ring
    bleed my dry
    of everything?

    I, too, have felt that sting. My ex ripped out my heart, and proceeded to fill the resultant hole with excrement.

    Never, EVER, will I let anyone that close again.

    If the only way - and it was gaurenteed - to "fix" my depression, AvPD, OCD, and all others was to allow another close enough to love me............?

    ....... then I'd die still suffering from depression, AvPD, OCD, and all the others.

    The risk of that kind of pain is not worth a thousand times whatever imagined benefits one might get for allowing love through.

    Thank you lightbeam and Kharma. :arms:

    Kharma, there can come a time when we feel healed enough - perhaps I mean "whole enough in oneself" again - to let the love happen with another person again. I find the ache and sorrow come and go like storms. A rough wind tosses me around, but a pleasant breezy day keeps me alive. Hope this makes sense. The idea, Kharma, of your hiding forever is sad to me. I hope that you can weather the residual storms and find a calm place to lay anchor for awhile. You never know who might come along and bless you with strength, care, calmness, love. :hug:

    The content is touching, I like most of all the musical sounds of the text. If you read it aloud, it would sound wonderful I think. Thanks for posting.
