Sometimes Silver Linings are Blue

Sorry Not Sorry

Broken Halo

Β image

Slowly sliding off this wedding band
Once a halo glowing on my hand
Glistening moments of vibrant force
Moving together staying the course
Burning my skin a legacy so small
Growing wild dreams for one and all
No more allegiance or obligations to fill
No longer smitten with passions to thrill
Once a symbol of two souls brand new
Now we are one soul splitting into two

  2. Hi Carisa, I like how you presented this. It should be melancholy, but was more about empowerment

  3. oh that is clever but the ending a little ambiguous , it is hard to tell there an actual split or some subtle union

    • I’m honored you think something I wrote was clever πŸ˜€ Oh yes! There was an actual split that could never be repaired. However, when there are children involved (burning in my skin a legacy so small) you have to maintain some type of union! I’m humbled I was able to stump you! Haha! πŸ˜‰

      • Oh I totally didn’t see it that way nor in that context… I was seeing a deeper connection in a different perspective , a positive one with a 10% negative after thought…. sorry I didn’t reply sooner 😦

        • You should be sorry! Haha! Well, I’m glad you saw it in a better light. It’s not meant to show a deep sadness. It was more of me thinking about the past. Even when you know you’re better off splitting it can still be a struggle. I’m an analyzer and tend to try and figure out what went wrong. I’m working on that in the here and now! πŸ™‚
          Also, I love when my words can be looked at in different ways. There isn’t a correct way to look at the words. πŸ™‚

        • I wouldn’t worry about what went wrong. Things change and there is nothing you can do about it. stating the obvious , but here I can tell you from where I am even tho you raised your son on your own you are fortunate to have him in your life , me I never had the chance to have any children of my own, and I would of loved that… that bond, knowing someone will be there later on in life , oh and the growing up thing too , mind you skipping the diaper stage is fine and dandy with me. The more you cry about things that went wrong the more you are wasting your time and energy that could easily be used elsewhere…. as simple as that is said I very well know it is not easy to do so.

          I agree with you about wasting time wondering what went wrong. It makes you miss out on so many present things. It’s a defect I wish I didn’t have. It truly is a problem for me. Thank you Dr. EL Wood!

  4. Oh yes, that last line is bang on Carisa. It really is a splitting apart, or a ripping apart. The two that became one, having to rip apart and become two again. The interesting thing about this even, is that when you rip something apart, it’s frayed, and no longer in its clean and perfect state. There’s something missing, and left hurt.
    I know you know exactly how this is, and I’m sorry for that.

    • You said it perfectly. Even if you know it’s for the best it’s still a traumatizing event.
      I became very jaded and cold for awhile. I wore my wedding band for almost a year after the split. I didn’t look at my ex with eyes of longing for him. I didn’t want him back. However, removing my wedding rings was beyond difficult. It made me feel I was a failure. I already had the feeling of empowerment before I removed them. Staci, thank you for always showing your support to me! I appreciate it so much! ❀️

    • Oh my sweet Erika πŸ™‚ Thank you for the words that anyone would love to hear. We seem to be on the same page more and more. It’s a feeling of embracing our struggles. I’m not perfect with my struggles. I have my moments (weeks, months, years) of falling down the rabbit hole. However, my hope is to always find my way out a much stronger person! πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‰β€οΈ

      • I thought so too, when I read your poem and also saw the picture: very much in common!😘 I don’t think that there are many people who are always standing tall and looking up. Sometimes the rabbit hole seems like a nice break from being strong, but once recovered we definitely are stronger than before! And the good part is that we always find a new company in every rabbit hole πŸ˜‰πŸ’–

        • Oh yes, I agree! We mostly only see the greater context only after we are out of that whole again. And that is good. If we saw it earlier maybe we wouldn’t take it serious enough and not really learn our lesson… I will see what flows πŸ˜‰

I often wonder if my my work in the presentation of the piece is shown. The presentation is done with searching for the precise pictures. It’s almost like a small movie. You’re one of the first people to comment on the presentation. Thank you for seeing it as a piece leading into my soul. I couldn’t admire more than I already do! My love is always being sent across the globe. ❀️

    • Hehe! You’re so funny! I think you’re pieces are masterpieces. πŸ™‚ Since I was in grade school I’ve who awards for my essays and work for my presentation and creativity. Haha. I’ve never seen it but am flattered by your kind words. A few years back I had an idea for a charity I was working with. I worked closely together with the president of this well known charity. She told me my ideas was brilliant and it would bring it to forefront. I gave her all the ideas I had for it. We were in many meetings with other Vice Presidents and people working hard on the project. In the end she presented it to everyone as her own complete ideas. I didn’t care who got credit for it. I just wanted help for those in need. However, It did hurt me deeply. It felt like someone stole my poems and presented them as their own. She was discovered as a liar and caused a devastation to the chapters charity. Andrew, you’ve been getting me to disclose my deep dark secrets lately! Ha!
