Just when you think you've gotten over someone and moved on seeing that person propose to another is more than your heart can take...

(January 11, 2012)

I’ve long forgotten the tears
That spilled from my eyes like raging rivers
Whenever I thought of days without you
Or reminisced about the days we’d shared
I’ve long moved on from everything you meant to me
From what we were and what we’d been through
When you were present in my life

But now that I find you with another
Now that I find you on one bended knee
Asking her to share your future
And her saying yes with overflowing happiness
As she kisses you with a sweet passion
The tears spill once more like raging rivers
And everything comes flooding back to me like a tsunami

I wish for her to be washed away with the tide
For you to be left standing on one bended knee
Proposing to thin air
Because having her there
Is more than my heart can take

Know this feeling only too well as it's a very recent event for me. You express it exactly as it is and I can only sympathise. The only way to quell such sorrow is by way of distance many miles as possible.

Your ability with the English language is to be commended. If only I could grasp french as firmly.
Reviewed by Amor Sabor 4/9/2012
There is no way to stop feeling for someone in any easy way. The hurt is greater sometimes than what we can bear but we must move on with our lives as soon as we realize they were not worth our time. You wrote of this quite well, Lena. I also see that English was not your natural language but it is commendable how well you write it.
Reviewed by Regis Auffray 4/3/2012
This is very powerful meaningfully and emotionally. I wish I could fix it. I think you deserve better. It is fine for people to say that we should not let another "mean so much" but it just happens. I've been there and done that. I just wish you goodness and healing, Lena. ☻

Reviewed by Peter Paton 3/31/2012

I think we have to come to the conclusion rapidly that no one person should ever hold such sway over our heart.
It is not good or healthy for us.

Reviewed by Connie Faust 3/31/2012
Your heartache pulses throughout your verses. A memorable write.
