I didn't purposely set out to relate and examine my angst in verse, sometimes it just happened.
I wrote this about two months post-relationship and shortly after I became aware of the fact that it didn't have
to be over in his opinion. That made things even harder for me. I've never had to determine to end a relationship
with someone I still love. If I 'broke up' with a boy, it was because I didn't like him anymore. If he 'broke' up with me, he didn't like me anymore.
I might still love or care for him, but no chance of reconciliation.
When my marriage ended, the love had been long deadened. No conflicting feelings or yearning for that person.
Mostly fear and anxiety regarding the new life to come.
So this has been a whole new experience knowing he isn't good for me and loving him anyway.
I miss you-has to be over.
No fear, no anxiety, I know it's over.
Just sadness and yearning.
The occasional tear.
Thinking of you less and less.
Sometimes an hour or two.
Happy for that.
The occasional smile.
So many things I love about you.
And not for the usual reasons.
I love who you aren't.
I love what you don't.
I love what you won't.
Just can't love what you do and who.
I want you-has to be over.
No touch, no closeness, I know it's over.
Just craving and feeling.
The occasional heat.
Could have you-has to be over.
Can't share, So-I know it's over.
Just mourning and grieving.
And occasional healing.
