I will slough off
all my feelings for you
like a second skin
for somebody else
to slip into
why am I still not over this

I love your poems, elegant, precise use of words and clear imagery,
but most of all
it is the feelings that mirror the shadows that dwell also in me

Sadly, the only answer for that is because it's not time yet. Relationships end as they are wont to end. I mourned the death of my first relationship for two years.

That being said, I am oh so very happy now with the woman I share my life with, so it's possible (and even likely) that things will get better. Though, I make no promises.

this. blew. me. away.

Small poems like this have always drawn the highest admiration from me: They take a lot of careful selection and a lot of raw emotion, usually. This, to me, was just beautiful. I really have no words, and I think that's what's most disappointing.
Bravo. You are very talented :rose:

I know the feeling. It sort of sits in the back of your throat.

This is beautifully relatable, and wonderfully written. I like the diction and formatting.

Lovely piece.

It doesn't always matter who does the breaking - it's a rough situation on both sides. Time will help. So will meeting new people and letting yourself realize that there are, in fact, lots more people to meet and know.

It's really the most inexplicable thing that's in my past. All the reasons in the world to let go, and I couldn't. It sucked. I think, sometimes, when your heart is young, someone can imprint themselves on you in a really really strong way.

I love Jenner better. I want to be with Jenner. I'd be happy to be with him the rest of my life, truly. But it doesn't FEEL the same as that one time. Of course, in general, it is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better.
