|Our love was once an amazing thing,
In haste, I was ready to give you a ring.
You laugh at my attempts to dance and sing,
I knew that I found the one from my dreams.
My smiles were huge and my spirits were high,
You made me believe in love at first site.
My mind was blurry; my heart was yours,
My new love could heal all my previous sores.
But sores didn’t heal, in fact more scars came,
My love introduced me to much more strain.
A side of you that that would cause me pain,
My heart was confused but my mind I regained.
My thinking is logic I know that I need,
To leave but my heart is too weak to proceed.
My mind says go but that’s easier said,
My pillow is wet from the tears I have shed.
So I have an idea to aid my escape;
A letter for you where I normally lay.
One that would state that love so strong,
Has diminished greatly now the loves all gone.
I have no regrets cause you showed me a love,
That was pure as an ocean and strong as a drug.
But no memory overshadows our bad
Now bittersweet tears are all that I have.
Pain is needed for progression...A past is needed for reflection....A vision is needed for direction...And a conscience is needed for correction- Amire Ryter
