Learning to Live Again

Learning to live again
Never seemed so hard
Learning to live again
Without the one I love

Opening up your heart
Wishing he could stay
Unknowing thoughts evade
With tears of grief colliding

Unspoken desires of fate
Breaking all the rules
Fighting to keep sane
The virtues brought afoot

Learning to live again
Never seemed so hard
Learning to live again
Without the one I love

Disasters slowly erupt
Depression cannot win
Search of self begins
Fleeing from my thoughts

Distances with time enlight
Gaining a little strength
Fires of rage ignite
Hope clings with fear

Learning to live again
Never seemed so hard
Learning to live again
Without the one I love

Wanting things to hide
Comes from deep within
Smiling to please my friends
Eases not my peace of mind

Missing him with all my soul
A piece of hope remains
Painful undercurrents stirs
A glimpse of eluded happiness

Learning to live again
Never seemed so hard
Learning to live again
Without the one I love

Shred of dignity still remain
A broken heart might heal
Keeping faith within a friendship
Knowing I love him still

Precious moments kept at bay
Cherished memories I'll always keep
May every day give me strength
Hopeful, I must survive

Learning to live again
Never seemed so hard
Learning to live again
Without the one I love

Learning to live again
Wouldn't seem so hard
Learning to live again
With myself for me to love

Thank you so very much for stopping by again! If you keep reading The Crackerhead Chronicles, you will come to several times when I had to endure crushing heartbreak, and it should be rather obvious that I did not handle it as well as you have.

By the way, this poem sure sounds like the basis for an incredible song. Have you tried approaching any musicians?

As a matter of fact, I do have a musically inclined friend of mine who has asked if he could write some melodies to my poetry. I do hope this works out.

I do not handle it any better then the gifts that are bestowed upon us all. The choice is ours to seek out and choose.

My dear friend! I will read more in the weeks to come :) Thank you for the positive feedback!
