Broken Frame and Broken Hearts

"You put a picture in a frame, but then the frame breaks."

I put our picture in a frame,

looks like the perfect couple,

nothing could go wrong here,

not a sign of trouble,

so happy and so in love,

you could see right through to our hearts,

but then the frame broke,

and with it everything fell apart.

The glass can not be repaired,

the frame only replaced,

but the picture inside

remains the same.

If I let things be

will they remain the same too?

Or will I just be living a lie?

I dont know what to do.

The frame is broken,

and so is my heart,

for you dug deep inside

and tore it apart.

Now I understand! So sorry. You will build a new picture with brighter colours, toughened glass and a strong frame to hold it all together. Sad poem but poignant, voted up.

I try to chose the ones worth hurting for. I believe in purpose even if time is not promised. Tho hurt and sadness is a natural response to any ending, I can't help but feel satisfied having lived in that moment. It helps me to embrace the moment to come. The hardest thing I ever learned is how to love and let go. I still have not mastered it.

I have learned that as well...I dont think anyone fully masters it. we just learn to accept what we have no control over and try to move on. I am hoping this guy is worth hurting for, and that this will be the only time I get hurt. I've forgiven for worse. But if something like it happens again, I am done.

It is good to know your own limits Nikki. Good luck!

oh definitely, there is only so much a person can take before you just cant do it anymore. but for the most part i am happy. He made a mistake, and I've made mine. he deserves a second chance. You also have to know when to give chances and when to let go.

Such a difficult and sad place--I can tell you that I understand--and that you will feel better--but I know it hurts--hang in there

Broken hearts take time to heal, Nikki. I personally believe in second chances. No person wants to live a lie. Otherwise the love would be hollow and empty inside. Hoping that the person is worth it, it's a hope of all hopes. Your heart is beautiful so guard it well, and live like you own a heart worth loving. You are amazing always and I care about you a lot. xx

Aww, thanks Cathy. You are such a beautiful person, inside and out. I care about you too. Yes the heart takes time to heal, good thing the heart is resillient and it heals a lot easier with each heartbreak you get used to the pain, but this wasnt the worst thing and its forgiveable, but you only get a second chance one time, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. theres no fooling me a third time, 3 strikes youre out. I have always been very guarded when it comes to love and affairs of the heart, but its that moment when u finally let your guard down that all hell can break loose. Thanks for caring :)
