Invisible me


How hard I tried
To have your praise
To see your pride
In the eyes of your face

So what exactly could I do
The answer was never given
How to gain love from you
How to carry on living

I gave up on wanting what I couldn't have
Acceptance held me in it's arms
Cold reality comforted me
Just myself to keep me from harm

You gave me life so thank you
And I live it with you not here
The pain and loneliness I went though
the confusion and fear

So tell me are you proud
And does it warm your heart
That we will never meet again
That we will always be apart.

You write really well rinoa, reflections on life I think always make interesting and absorbing poems, this is wonderfully written, I have read it a few times and each time I feel a slightly different facet to the words.

Thanks Seriphos, it's to do with my mother and my childhood, she wasn't a very good mother and was absent a lot, as I grew up I had to take care of myself a lot, even cooking my own meals when I was seven years old, and when she was around she wasn't if you know what I mean, as I grew up I had to depend on myself and I thought this made me stronger, but I've realised I was wrong and my childhood emotions are still very much effecting me, so now I have to start healing hence the poem. :kiss:

Thanks rinoa for letting us know how the poem fits in with your childhood, without your last post every time I read it I read something slightly different. It's sad when you have had an up bringing specially in those younger years that you have experienced. It isn't something you can forget. The poem is a healing poem, the words now I know how they reflect your relationship with your mother have quite affected me.

After reading your poem, I felt the need to write,,,

 

This is what came out:

 

There are many things in life that come to us as lessons to learn

Some of which, inside, causes us to yearn

for those little things that for others are just there

You know, simply like someone showing you they care

Not taken for granted, ever, by you or me

Within those arms is where we long to be

Feeling the joy of being loved in that way

is something that is wished for every day

What isn’t, may well never be

Through other eyes though we can learn to see

The acceptance of what was is a fault of none

It’s the first steps, your healing has begun

Relish that your heart is not made of stone

See inside of you just how much you’ve grown

A different path does not mean you are less

nor does it mean there is a mess

It’s simply a detour; your pathway will open up now

 and what is for you will come in anyhow

So, hold your head up, smile and join with me

Walk the pathway now that was meant to be

They are memories, forward now is the way

and with all that you’ve learnt, present you’ll stay

Let it serve its purpose and take you along,

building bridges now on the foundations that are so strong

 

Things aren't always how we think they are Rinoa and sometimes we can beat ourselves up when there's no need to,,,

 

Healing comes in many forms,,, including clearing of residue,,,

 

I don't feel pain or sorrow from your poem, I feel aware that your experience caused you pain and sorrow, although I feel you have dealt with this and it's simply the residue leaving your aura,,,

 

Let it leave,,, and watch what comes in :)

 

Massive love and hugs to you

 

Jo
