The Missing Link


There is nothing that you can do

To change anything

I just have to live my life

To keep going from day to day

Till the day I feel I am ready

To make the biggest move of my life

There are so many people who offered help

But they cannot feel what I feel

They cannot replace the things I have lost

I am grateful for your love and support

The love and understanding from my AD family

Within my heart I can feel

That some of you out there

Truly mean every word you say

I can feel they are true angels

But as you all know

It is not easy to just walk away

From certain things in life

We can hide...but others things will haunt you

And the thought of making the same mistake

Of another abusive relationship

Even if only verbally

I feel it has no better my insanity

There is still that missing link

Many promises have been broken before

Why not another?

I think I know better

To just close my eyes

Than to drown myself in more shit

I hope you understand what I am at

Affection can be seen as love

When the heart that gives it

Are a broken one too

No matter how pure the intentions are

There is nothing that you can do

To change anything

I just have to live my life

Till the day I feel I am ready

To make the biggest move of all

Even if that means

By the far side of

Tinka they say we learn from our past experiences and as I read your words I realize you have, The hurt and pain goes away with time. Most of us have been there and can speak to you from our experience, believe me you will love again maybe not tomorrow or next month but when you heal from the pain and learn there is TRUE love for everyone. It appears the second time around the majority of us take our time. Today my thoughts are of you and with you, take care.

newfie hugs coming your way, Rose

I just have to live my life
Till the day I feel I am ready

No truer words were ever spoken. Each of us must truly decide for ourselves when we are truly ready to do anything. No one else can do it for us.

For a mising link you look kind of cute, and if you have a too big pain you can share it with your fiends and see how little is the piece of it which will be left for you to have.

An excellent write Tinka
peace & love

Reading this has made me think of what is giving me so many sleepless nights. Discovering all the promises for a better future, all the love (marriage was planned in June...), that believing once again, putting my energy and my whole self was worth nothing...
I'm shattered right now, lucky that I can still write, worried about my future, worried about my daughter.

So, when you write such an autobiographical piece, with lines such as:

"We can hide...but others things will haunt you
And the thought of making the same mistake
Of another abusive relationship
Even if only verbally
I feel it has no better my insanity
There is still that missing link
Many promises have been broken before
Why not another?"

I can really understand, yes I can.

I have to agree with Susan, you and only you can make that decision to restart your life and break the chains. We all are only given so much time and so many choices to us in this world and when time runs out it is too late then for regrets.

You know what you need to do and when you're'll do it. I have faith in you Tinka and I also see myself years back...where you are now. Whatever it takes we'll stand by you and you know this. Please keep well and keep your faith near to your heart.

You are so beautiful and so very wise! Two drownin people can't save one another, each must save themselves. You so deserve and need a strong man that can love you as you deserve to be loved. I have given up the hunt and will remain on my own, havin GOD and me to care and love me, I wish nothing more. LOVE YOU! Sissy

Broken wood and broken mirrors, broken hearts, wasted years. Such sadness! Hang in there. You have such beautiful thoughts. It's amazing where that comes from. Verbal Alchemists. That's what we are. Take care. --Charlie
Reviewed by Approximately Naive
As the writer said, 'Wood becomes a flute when it's broken.'
Our instincts alone are the only ones that can finger the sensitive notes of our feelings.
The writer also wrote, 'Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken, look in the mirror and see your shattered fate.'
Until the rim is blunted and the cuts healed, we daren't harmonise with anyone even more so while the fragmented image remains.

Pragmatic piece of introspection

A very hard decision to make!
I certainly agreed,you and only you
Can make such decision!

I understand, but still think you would be better off walking away NOW before you can't walk away. Too many stay until it is too are better than the shit you're having to go through, the unending stress and unhappiness...I see it in your words and feel it through your pen. Please, take care, know you're in my prayers.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I know you are facing some horrible memories; and it is up to you to get over them. I am sorry you had to go through all of this stuff. Know you are ever in my prayers/thoughts! Very well expressed write of emotions; keep on writing; it will help you in the long run!
