Sometimes nothing is a good think


Our relationship ended the other day
You packed your bags and would not stay

You thought that I would scream and cry
As you told me that final good-bye

I was left with no deep emotions
No love, no hate, no eternal devotion

At some point we ceased to care
Call it 'quits', we did not dare

You found someone who turned you on
I was relieved to see you gone

There was no bitterness left in your wake
No feelings left for you to take

I wasn't numb or feeling down
There was nothing left, no personal ground

I tried to work up some pain
Thought you might come back again

But I felt nothing left in me
Simply happy to be free

I'd rather live my life alone
Than to exist once love is gone.

After reading your poem it is quite possible my 25 year marriage was experiencing what your break up did. What I have learned since then is that love can't truly exist without committment. A very profound and interesting piece of poetry, well writen.

Understandable and well written, enjoyed the read although sad.
For the most part it did not overtake with sadness instead relief.
These breakup are sometimes a part of life and sometimes they are also warranted!

Boy, this sounds like me when we separated and then divorced so many years ago. The nothingness was bigger than all outdoors, and so was the peace. Glad a found a husband who fits the bill about what love is and enriches my life.

God bless you. Kathy

Sherry, I enjoyed your poetry. You inspired me to write:

Nothing is good
When everything is bad
Anything will be better
Than some things I've had.

Like that last line Sis Sherry. A friend of mine, widowed and in her early 50s, who actually happened to be named who just got jilted by a three year romance. Let's say he would have been a good candidate for surveillance on that show called "Cheaters."

Now her only concern is being checked for a disease that we pray to God she doesn't have. Wouldn't it be nice if life were as calm as the scene in your photograph above?
blessin's, lovely poem, lovely peace to you,

Love is always waiting around the corner. All one needs to do is walk in that direction. Great pen

Dear Sherry,

I thought it wrong to feel the way you so articulately penned this, but on reading it a couple of times, I realise that I too would feel happier, "to rather live my life alone
Than to exist once love is gone." What good is it merely existing ?A superb write Sherry, it really hits home.

Stunning picture.

warm hugs

AAmen to that! Telling it like it is probably hurt the guy more than all that screaming and sniveling, least I know it would me. LOL
