Finally Over

When I lost you

I found myself

and I hurt

I pained

for too long

thinking of how foolish I had been to believe in you

But my hurt turned into poetry and dance

and I wrote

and danced

until I filled up the emptiness inside of me

The void that set inside my soul

when you were no longer there

Poetry about you and for myselfย  poured from my fingertips

like golden rum at Carnival time in Trinidad

I loved until I stopped hurting

and I found not only myself

but

someone to love me for real

And oh yes

there were times when I wished he were you

until constant caresses and truthful sighs

showed me that true love takes me for what I am

Yes

it is finally over.

Realย love has rescued my weary soul

and you are just a faded memory

because I am no longer afraid to return

the love that I have been given

    Wow! This poem so describes how I feel about a certain relationship I was in and the love I have found now. I saw the date and thought, deep! Here is the line that describes it best,

    Poetry about you and for myself poured from my fingertips
    like golden rum at Carnival time in Trinidad
    I loved until I stopped hurting
    and I found not only myself
    but
    someone to love me for real

    Thanks Sis, for penning my pain and my joy!
