I discovered something major today

That rocked my world even more

This is no fiction…or fantasy…and definitely no joke!!


"My Divorced Soul"

Divorced are my soul from my body
I learned the hateful art of deception
All day I tried to understand

Loads of stress and bothered thoughts
Within this dark shadow I am bound
Empty of sleep…

Empty of heart
I stumbled
Into a unfamiliar part of life
Make one mistake
Like the one you made
There will be no return…
No going back to a

“Promised Land”
Lay still breaking heart
You have no right to decide
What’s allowed deep within…
Divorced are my soul from my body
I have learned

The hateful art to except the truth
Seek no further…
I saw bitterness
As I stumbled out
Into a dark unfamiliar side of life
Now sadness chokes me blind

And behind this smiling face
Bitterness blasted my mind
Murdered thoughts still kind
Dark thoughts were born today

It fills this aching heart

Aww Tinks, this is a very moving, your soul needs to reconcile itself with new thought and direction.

maybe there is a mediatin meditation you can do to reconnect, though it seems to me that both are working in this poem.

Tinks you know you can't go back, but you can rewind the clock.

Have a body soul reconcilliation, and move up.
You just owe it too yourself.

Divorcing your body from your soul,
You could when you die end up in a hole,
Deep it may be and hot as well,
Hope down there they to you lemonade sell...Ed

when one is true and finds the other one
just hasn't been wonders how can I
MAINTAIN myself in the light of love and feel
alive still....I will pray and with the Lord's help
I will prevail....not fall and fail.
Best Wishes',

your "divorced" soul must reconcile with yourself, Tinka ... always look for new directions and recreate yourself ...
Reviewed by Roger Ochs 6/22/2005
The body is of one plane while the soul is of another. They are divorced by nature but with conjugal visitations.

Tinka, very dramatic write. I'm not sure what happened, but hope all is well. ~ Sara
Reviewed by E T Waldron 6/22/2005
Aberjhani makes a good point. If this is true then you need spiritual help quickly, and I wouldn't fool around if I were you.

Reviewed by Aberjhani 6/22/2005
A powerful spiritual dilemma, to discover oneself divided against oneself. The dramatization in MY DIVORCED SOUL makes clear the need for an ongoing harmonious integration of self with Self, as well as the fact that even our own being is something we should never take for granted. Enjoyed the read.

O, I can feel the hurt in your painful words--a girlfriend of mine is going through this very same thing. I will share this with her, to let her know she's not alone. And I've been on the path you're on. It will get better, trust me--
