I love You Guys!!!
You will know better than the rest...who has no clue!!


“Without Stars In My Eyes - Once More”

Without the sun
The world would be so dark
Without stars in my eyes
My smile become stark
Without self embrace
I have no grace
I become a no class disgrace
Without fire
No desire
Out of place
Where love shines
There will be no darkness
To hang on to a love long gone
And without stars in my eyes
What is the use?
Try and carry on?
No ways…
You overplayed your hand
Evil was best understood
The day I met you
When fools and all the parasites
Abused their vows
And trusted their friends
That was your biggest mistake
They had to run to me…
And gossip became the order of my day
Now I have to say goodbye
You thought you would give me a thrill
But all you did was breaking my will
I wanted your friendship not your skill
You wanted censorship
Not a relationship
Now I will just say
Goodbye my friend
Hope you can cope
With another
Brutal attack

Tinka this is a very painful and sad write
Gossip can't be very painful but don't let
Anything ever turn the light of stars in your eyes
The door opens and closes don't let it hit you!
Tinka very deep and painful write!!

That's how it goes when life is beautiful as it is. the divine interplay of destiny and the drama of daily life. love is love is love, eternal, and anything else is a pale shade. Blessings, soul.

It is sad that even the best familys have some bad apples and all I can say is we must always look at the overall picture because for every bad apple we encounter on the den there is a whole orchard of bright red apples...

Dear Tinka ~ This is so well written and must be a sad state of affairs.
Shouldn't you take the gossip to the friend? ...and ask WTF. Friends are too far and few between.

"They had to run to me…And gossip became the order of my day Now I have to say goodbye"

I have heard that the best way to get word to a person, is to tell someone else and ask them please not to say anything to the person, sometimes it's the only way!!

Just a thought Warmth and Love to you, Carin~

Sometimes it is the hurt and pain that gives us the strength we need to become who we are meant to be. A very powerful write you share as we watch the stars in your eyes shine brighter. Take care Tinka.

We move around sometimes trying to make sense of things that are just meant to be, no sense to be made. We try to move forward but we take two steps backward. Then again timing is off, we hope and we hurt at the same time. We move along hoping for another chance at what we wish for.

Please. If you value yourself, get out of that situation, save your life, or there will be no stars in your eyes - for REAL. Such sadness in these lines - my heart breaks for you. You continue to remain in my prayers.

Yep, Bonnie has it right (as always, she is so uplifting). I feel the hurt in this writing. Let the hurt have its way for it is closure. Tears will wash away the pain, for an ended love is not ever the end of the world, and making bright new memories will (honest) take away the dark.

Be well Sweetie

Oh Tinka this was absolutely beautifully painful...we all get hurt when we put our hearts out there...the pain makes us know they didn't kill us...we could close up or continue the journey to find a spirit that lifes our soul...great write...love and hugs, Bonnie
