“Tears are words that need to be written” ~ Paulo Coelho
Faux People…broken promises…strong is a lie…I had to…you gave me no choice…
It WAS survival of the fittest…
You promised so many things…
then changed your mind when it didn’t conform to your expectations anymore.
You said you had to…
You used to be so intimidating to me…but now you are so very small…
Small in the worst way, small of heart.
You can’t see because you’re afraid of what you will find if you look with knowing eyes…
He would be so very sad, disappointed, shocked –
mostly very very very mad, angry, outraged at your behavior…
If you think you knew him better you’re wrong.
Don’t be surprised that you’re now alone…
If you were compassionate, understanding, empathetic
and looking to others best interest instead of your own…
you would be surrounded with love and support right now.
Stop thinking you’re ALWAYS right.
Stop acting like you’re the victims.
We are…not because of who made the mistake that took him from us…
but because of your actions, lies and broken promises.
I can almost forgive that irresponsible person…
I cannot forgive your intentional cruelty that robbed us
of so much more than you’ll ever know.
It is because you won’t look with the intent to actually see…
that you are alone.
I thought it was me who was the facade…
acting strong when I had no other choice but to be…
I was wrong…
It is you who is the facade…

Beautiful, Poignant, meaningful, excellent!
Thank you so much for such high praise…it was trapped inside for a long time and just sort of….came out (again). You are most kind! Hugs and Blessings! ~
Same to you, of course! 🙂
i can feel the pain from out here, christina. hugs.
Thank you, I’ll never turn down a hug! 🙂 I have finally reached a place of freedom that’s been severely lacking for a few years now…so I guess some of anger/hurt/pain and other ick is finding a way out.
I know you know how powerful words can be…and how freeing once the words get out of you. Thank you again for the hugs 🙂
You expressed your thoughts beautifully .happiness will fill the heat.Delicate poem..Regards

I do love the quote you chose “Tears are words….” Your narrative is very powerful, well written Christina ~ so much emotion… a lot still working its way to the surface it seems. I hope this felt good to write…healing ~ cleansing etc. I am sending you a big hug tonight…you deserve tons of them!! xo Robyn
Oh Robyn, I always look forward to your insight and your encouragement! I know I wouldn’t feel ‘free’ to explore this if it weren’t for you and others here making feel so welcome and safe.
Yeah, two years is way too long to hold all that anger in. I was hoping to write something nice today…but I saw that quote and the rest just sort of spilled out.
It does feel really really good to get it out, definitely cleansing! Thank you so much for the big hug and mostly for being you…a bright light in my world. I do so appreicate you sweet friend! Love, Hugs, and Blessings for a wonderful day tomorrow!

It’s a very honest poem and I like the metaphor about the facade!
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts 🙂 This piece was very special and healing for me. I appreciate your visit! 🙂
The feeling in this one .. to let it explode like that … to allow that passion to show themselves like wolf hunting it’s prey and looking it in the eye telling it you are not afraid.
I will say that showing the real you from behind the façade was a very brave thing to do – necessary – but still brave 🙂
For some random reason, I was going through old posts and saw this comment and was shocked I hadn’t seen it earlier!! Forgive me, please for my late reply for this was truly a most awesome comment!!!
Thank you so very very much sweet friend for your generous praise! I so appreciate your encouragement and compliment a about me being brave, I didn’t feel brave at the time!! 🙂 I do appreciate you !! Hugs
No need for apologies my friend. Nothing to forgive.
Well, maybe you didn’t feel brave at the time, but you were. Exceptionally so. You let a side out that was hidden and building and building and building. It would have exploded inside your head had you not let it out.
Very true….I probably would have exploded. This blog has been THE best thing to happen to me in a long long long LONG time!! 😀 !!! Thank you again, for joining me on my journey 🙂
I’m glad. Thank YOU for allowing me along on this journey 🙂
No, the honor is still mine sweet friend 😀 !!
In that case, I am truly honoured 🙂
