Losing love, becoming stronger...

Speck of Dust


For so long we have been so many things to each other_

Lovers, friends, companions, even enemies.

Your leaving devastates me.

Well still be friends, you say.

As if in the saying, your leaving will be less devastating.

I have loved you, yes given all I had to give,

But you say its not enough.

I wonder what more I could have given?

I have given my all_

My body, my heart, even my soul.

Given all to you_ I held nothing back.

My heart now bleeds at thought of your leaving.

You say you love me, but only as a friend.

What of the passion we shared?

Do only friends share such passion?

You speak platitudes. I die a little more.

The strong hand of pain takes hold of mine.

I know hell be my companion for a very long time,

But when he takes his leave, and he will.

I will still be here_ Stronger than before.

When that time comes, what we had together_

Will be as nothing more than a speck of dust on forever.

Going through this kind of pain makes one realize how very strong we can be....stronger than we could have ever imagined.

It is the tempering of pain and sorrow that strenthens us or breaks us, Well written expression of this.

Very poignant piece. Life sometimes strenghtens us with its ups and downs.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 7/9/2007
Sad but with a reality check ending for you come to a conclusion that you are a survivor and life will glow and blossom for you again. Very well done.

Reviewed by J. Allen Wilson 7/8/2007
This is such a sad but true write for so many.
The saying "what does not kill you, makes you stronger"
stands to reason and truth. Hope and blessings for a
quick healing of the heart and soul.

Reviewed by Art Sun 7/8/2007
Your thoughts express many emotions of love and loss of love, even though the thought of friendship is the expression there is a depth of love that stirs even within the dust of forever, only it is felt mainly from one side...

nice work....
