A piece I wrote back in 2019 (posted on my instagram)

I never ever thought there would come a time that I would get over my ex let alone find someone who could be as kind, romantic, playful and gentle.  I felt like no one could ever ‘fill his shoes’ the bar had been set pretty high… and it wouldn’t even be fair to anyone to attempt a relationship.  The few times I tried I ended things quickly just feeling discouraged.  I considered myself lucky to had even had the opportunity to have a love like I had with my ex.

I walk and wait

My state

Of mind

Blank

Drowning (in my own fears)

Frowning (the lost years)

The birth

Of new life

Crowning

Rooms away

Reminders of a different day

Not anguish and strife

Tears pooling my eyes

Deep Rooted Yearning

 

Deep Rooted Yearning

 

Tossing, turning,
stomach churning,

Heartburn, burning

Deep rooted yearning

For me to arrive

 

You wake

 

Rub your belly

Swollen

Swollen with new life

With me

 

We are connected,

Through life giving ties

 

That led to my demise

The gift of life

Lies

 

You will never look into my eyes

 

Tossing, turning,
stomach churning,

Heartburn, burning

Deep rooted yearning

Longing for me to arrive
