learning curves

This has to be a test
They’ve both disappeared
And I’m left with this strange feeling in my chest
Maybe it’s pain or a sliver of heartbreak
The ground beneath me wants to shake
But I stay strong amidst this quake
I hear your voice telling me it’ll all be well
I’m letting this weird emotion dwell
Hoping an answer can come and yell
Or just waiting for my phone’s bell
I’ve let go, I’ve given space,
I’ve jumped in, I’ve done this chase
You’ve made me laugh and gleam
Now we’ve drifted into a different stream
I saw you in a dream
And I don’t know what to think
Was on the brink
But then you showed up and made things blurry
You, however, want me to worry
Out of nowhere, you ran
Leaving me, almost as if it was always your plan
I started to feel it coming, but I stayed
I can’t help but feel a bit betrayed
I still care and send you compassion’s aid
Oh Universe, I know you threw in this grenade
Waiting to see my being’s shade
Will I surrender and fade?
Or soak in the lesson and let love invade?
This day is up and down with emotion
Like the infinite waves of the ocean
I’ll always live for my soul’s devotion

I love

  1. “Always living for soul’s devotion” oh wow do I feel the heartache in this one. I too am experiencing the pain that I feared was coming with my partner. I think it may just be the end of our time together in this life. We have been separated for so long and since I have grown and healed do much, we are on different frequencies now. All I can do is pray for his own wellbeing and highest good. I like you have felt this rumbling for sometime. He is my bestest friend. I continue to ride the waves of emotion, upon the ocean, carefully as the tides shift. This as with everything else takes time, patience and grace. Yet as you write, caring for our souls is of the utmost importance and commitment ❤

    • Aww thank you so much!! Ah, I’m so sorry to hear that and I totally understand the pain or feeling. It’s such a tricky thing. This week, two relationships have kind of hit me in a strange place and it’s been really tough…I didn’t plan on posting yesterday but I wrote this poem and I knew I needed to get it out. Yes indeed, here’s to riding the waves of emotion together!!! We just have to trust in the Universe and remember everything happens for a reason, as hard as that can be at times! 🤪 As always, I am so grateful for you and your support – means so much!!!! Much love sis 🖤🖤🤗
