The Pain of Parting

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Why is saying goodbye so painful,

so unduly overwhelming,

a heart stilled by parting love,

the yearning begun before gentle hands separate,

even in the knowledge of reunion.

Within the nurturing arms of love souls rejoice,

imbued by the rising sun or an azure sky,

the majesty of life’s rich offerings.

Yet to be without a love near is torturous,

a breath stolen, a blow endured,

a soul dismembered and wanting completeness.

I try to be strong, take responsibility,

but my heart bleeds water,

the essence of my blood lifeless,

without the thick syrup of my joy,

my soul song quieted by the void of your shadow.

Every second away from you is an eternity of pain,

a relentless reminder of what you are to me,

my heart’s longing a single passage,

back turned on a world,

single-minded and drenched in sadness.

How my love broods when you are away,

tortures itself with circular thoughts,

each leading to you,

my loving surrogate soul,

my all.

      Simply beautiful...I was deeply moved for I have experienced such raw pain. You have captured the seperation of lovers/lost love very eloquently. It most definitely is a pain that feels like the soul is rent and the heart left bleeding.

      Heart wrenching, a pain felt by all while parting.
