opposite meaning

you said that
you could love me
how i unwrapped
the riddle i had knotted
in my heart
imagined my surprise
when i counted my ribs
and found not the barest thing
to be worthy of shroud
for your words
draping painful in opposite meaning.

I know this pain, but even though the music has stopped, I wouldn't have missed the dance for anything. *hugz to you*  This is compact, a hard hit. I feel this.

Hard to expose yourself yourself deeply to someone that you love, then get hurt in
return by them....its easy to keep a distance from people, just to protect what was
hurt in the first place..trusting is hard. Hope in time your pain will heal to where you
can open your heart once again...
Im sorry for your pain~
Letting go of the heartache, like this write..helps nurture and build back a solid
foundation for you to start your life once again without her.
I could keep going but I will end with this...
Lovely write, please keep sharing..

I think it is good therapy, Andrew, to allow these types of feelings out...
We've all been bites sometimes...but we are organic creatures which heal and rejeuvenate ourselves.

You may need to make more pleasant recent memories before you can toss that handful of dirt...or require some form of closure...Poetry oft helps us find that serenity in ourselves.

Heartfelt write Andrew...
