How can anyone really know
What my heart feels like
When the tears just flow
In an endless stream of pain

So many feelings inside
Rearranging themselves
Taking my emotions for a ride
Without a map, no direction known

So I keep circling the same territory
Hoping for exploratory surgery
To break open that depository
Of love that needs to depart

This isn’t an easy task
Letting love go you thought was true
Being fooled like a stupid ass
Again and again and again

But let go I must find a way
To close this chapter
Before I waste another day
Looking for answers that aren’t there

This constant psychological abuse
Molding me like a battered woman
Holding on to love even when there is no use
Thinking tomorrow is another day

Each moment leaves me scarred and hot
Not knowing how many more pages are in this book
Of he loves me, he loves me not
Always looking for the one that says, “happily ever after”

Sara, I'm afraid I don't have a magic wand that I can wave, but I can tell you that it will get better. The hardest part of saying goodbye is MEANING it.
Reviewed by Elizabeth Taylor (Reader) 3/30/2003
Beautifully done, Sara. Just know that when you are in love, you are insane, with blinders and ear muffs on so you can't see or hear all the things that are wrong, becaus you want things to be so right.

Really a good work.
