I'm Not Ready To...

Updated on July 23, 2011

I'm not ready to say good-bye...

All the pain in my heart...

Surrounds my love for you...

On a daily basis,

Night and day...

You're on my mind...

Living within my soul...

I don't know how to let you go...

I can't breathe...

Thoughts of you being with another,

And never being with me...

Kills me so badly,

I wanna die...

And drown myself in the ocean of sadness...

My soul is empty...

I'm an empty soul...

I love you so much...

I can't let go...

Letting go means saying good-bye...

Saying good-bye makes me want to cry...

I hate this feeling...

I want to die...


Emptiness is what I feel...

Every minute that I'm not with you...

Please father, let this not be true...

I'll get on my knees and pray everyday,

Just so that I can wish this pain away...

      What a stunning and moving poem! The Unfinished Business of the heart is a serious affair. What is heart ache to the woman can easily be a sport to the man. I am not suggesting that is the case here. But some guys have a certain affect on their ladies and can seem like good at manipulating us sometimes. It's hard to see through it.

      Most guys make a hash out of explaining being with another woman. Basically there is no excuse. There are just things a lover or partner should not do. It's times like that when we need friends around us.

      Sweet hub and I love how you wrote this, Rena. You have a beautiful way with words and the sentences roll into one another!

      Heart aching honesty and soul searching and wanting the vital answers to the most important love of our life... this is a heady subject and written beautifully. Some people can write great poetry but some can not say what is truly in their heart. But you say it perfectly and wonderfully. You're a great writer!

      Life has her way of becoming the very reason for love and light. I see because I am blind. What a beautiful light that shines in you. Voted way up and very beautiful.

      Hello Romancer, Just wanted to read this again to see what I would feel now that I am broken. Still so beautiful and I wanted to let you know that I have been left by love, but I still see the most beautiful feelings in my heart and soul.I may be alone, but what I was given from Jenna is a love so amazing that I can't help but smile inside just because I was blessed to know such a love and I know that there are so many people that will never know this love.

      Hello Ms. Sassy! I am truly honored that you stopped in for a visit.

      It is hard...very hard to let go of someone or something that made you feel absolutely complete. Like nothing else in the world mattered. A choking feeling indefinte.

      I am sooo happy to see you!

      Have a blessed day.

      Hello Cathy... You are right. Some write to a song they hear, and then there's someone like me that write to a song to mask their own feelings. It's the sad truth. This song did bring out burried feelings, that aren't so burried. *smile* I guess I am so obvious sometimes...

      Thank you so much... For being a great person. I truly from the bottom of my heart appreciate you...

      It's what I don't have now... that I miss. *sigh*

      Perhaps you're right! I do need a hug... *smile*

      Have a blessed day!

      Romancer...This is beautiful. I really feel your pain. Letting go is not easy but eventually you will. That empty pain is most definitely a familiar one. It chokes you and makes you want to die. Your emotions are beautifully captured. Thank you for sharing.

      It is really very nice piece that reminded me same story that happened to me way back to the past. The good thing is that I won my lover finally. Thanks for sharing.

      Letting someone go is so hard, and this pain is so obvious, Rena. But if the person is with another...oh dear. I know some write to a song that they hear, and maybe mask the more actual feelings just underneath. Like smiling when we feel anything but happy. (I don't know Keith Sweat.)

      You sound like you need a good hug. Being not ready to let go means there are still feelings deep down. Letting go doesn't happen till the head and the heart agree and act as one. We find so many reasons to want things to continue...we can be blinded by things also... Wishing pain away is not as powerful as pushing it away, however gently, however reluctantly...

      Blessings to you, Rena.
