hello

you’ll be glad to know
that I hardly ever
think of you
anymore

my nights are
no longer sleepless,
my eyes red-rimmed
and puffy

I’m over you
at last, emptiness
a tired relief
from pain

yes, I don’t
miss you
anymore

   but my number
     hasn’t changed if
       you ever need to
         reach me
C.

She leads her complicated life, this lady of yours. Lots of weary reflection.

She's fortunate to have so perceptive a chronicler :hug:

Awww. Noone gets spared from that one, do they...

I'm quite jealous of your talent to evocate the small emotions we all felt at one point.

Nicely said! This one made me smile at the end, because I've felt that exact same way.

I'm wondering about the wording in your second stanza though. The part where you say "my eyes red-rimmed and puffy" made me think that your eyes are that way right now. But on second reading I understood that you meant your eyes aren't that way anymore. Maybe a little rewording would help clarify. (I'm a little fried right now anyway so it might also be that I'm not reading it right!)

Otherwise, a signature Cindy piece with so much emotion expressed so very well. :heart:

You're welcome!

Yeah - the days are long. I think once we adjust to the new workloads everyone will settle into a rhythm. We just have to find our groove again.

Oh that final strophe. It's such a part of all of us. We want closure with a window left open near the back. I wonder what it is, that makes us simultaneously desire resolution and fear actually letting it finish something. People are paradoxes.

This is AMAZING. I can relate with it all to well. And it's kinda cool how you can sum up an entire range of emotions, with just a few simple sentences.....I love it.

It's so glorious that, right from the outset of the poem, it's clear that the speaker is sooooooo not over the whole relationship. It's a very effective poem in that way.

It's difficult to sever the ties to those we were close to. I usually end up cutting them off completely as that is the only way I can manage to do it. Cold turkey. lol

not really. I am used to it that way though. Half the time I become friends with them again later in life, if they didn't hurt me too badly.

I love how tough and secure the lover seems to be in the beginning but in the end, you can see the lover is still vulnerable. i love it.
