Not sure if I'm going to make it.

I  know that it's all over;
And I know I have to move on.
But it's much easier said than done!
Without a purpose I realize;
No battle has been won.

Material things around me are fine;
But what if I don't want to use them?
The fire has gone out in my soul,
I feel empty, numb and useless..

Now that he's gone and I look around;
What's the point in anything I do?
Time is a healer, so they say;
But they don't say how to get through.
Every time I wake, I realize how it is;
I just can't help but wish that I were dead.

Yes Donni, I can rely to this. It's the worst feeling one can experience.
But isn't it amazing that we all survive?
Good one.

I am going through what you describe here.
I sympathize heartily. Read your Bio, and
sure did enjoy it. Our backgrounds are so
similar in some ways that we could have been
sisters! Read my "Creativity and Madness,"
and you'll see what I mean.

I doubt there are very many women who have not been right where you are now. You won't die although it feels like you will. You are stronger than you know. Send me a message on my board if you need a friend and I'll send you my regular email address.

I'm sorry that you feel such pain. I can only relate this to losing a loved one in death. You have to take time to morn the loss and then make new and better life for yourself.

Hi Donni:

I gather that the "you" in all your poems means yourself, if I'm not mistaken. I think your poems will benefit by using the first person as the main character, so that when the audience read them, it gives them much closer feelings if they can relate to what you say too.

Please don't be offended by my suggestion, it's just my own humble opinion. I've often use 1st person character to writer my poems, and even my short stories.

Good write here! Enjoyed.

May Lu a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)
