Sitting here

Sitting here with tears in my eyes.
Looking up at the sky wondering WHY.
As the tears fall from heaven, I ache to
be with you.
Sitting here pouring out my heart, my
thoughts.
I haven't got a clue why you left.
How could you leave me feeling so bereft?
Wasn't our heats connected?
I thought they was.
If you felt a different way, Why didn't you
say?
Why did you play games with my most
precious possession?
My heart was yours to keep.
You broke it.
You didn't care.
Sitting here, I choose.
I choose to be free.
I choose to be happy.
I choose this lesson.
You've taught me a lot.
Sitting here, I realize you took way too much time.
The life I lead is beautifully mine.
So as I take this sip of wine, sitting here I
feel just fine.
Sitting here is where I need to be.
I may be alone, but never lonely.
Sitting here.
Yes, sitting here.
Sitting here in my solitude.
I feel so, so good.

this one was such a very passionate write of ones truest feelings when you find yourself alone and the question of why always comes to mind, but alas most times there is no wrong or right answer unless one has severely betrayed the other.....but do not despair my friend for there is a true love out there for you and that one will see the light shinning from your spirit and will know it to be true........you write such beauty and passion filled words my friend....a true talent of a poet........well done ......loves ya asha Namaste

Never let anyone tell you how to love or live . But never make the next love pay for his pain . Strong and powerful write my friend . I see the strength in you . Marie

You speak words of wisdom and sounds down into my heart the things I already believe. Thank you for your positive encouraging comments....E

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
