Sometimes Silver Linings are Blue

Sorry Not Sorry

Three Minutes

200cop

Give me three minutes of your time
You could tenderly explain your crime
Perhaps I’d forgive your heart’s treason
Make me understand – Give me one reason

Maybe your mind was stolen for a day or so
The winds blowing hard you had to let go
Wonder if remorse floods your heart
Waves of blood flowing back to the start

Back to simpler times without doubt
No rooms filled with shame to clear out
Maybe if you’d cry just one tear for me
I could be unshackled and set free

zeroes 6

  6. This is a lovely poem. You encompassed so much with your words – so many emotions that fill us when we love someone. This will stay with me, my talented friend. Kind regards and a friendly hug from me to you.β™₯

  15. So beautiful… full of so many emotions… we love people we don’t want to, it’s impossible to stop, and even if it’s painful we understand we want to love them because it’s beautiful feeling, making us free, freeing our spirit, and our love is right and we where made to trust people and love them not otherwise, only bad or wrong or people that are lost are making us feel doubts, then we losing our faith in love and trust… but those people are not bad because they’re chosed this way, someone made it and on and on… so love is beautiful despite it hurts and it’s painful.
    Your sister is so lucky…
    wish you lot of strength and love. xxx

    • I’ve read your words over and over. They are full of wisdoms. I know most people aren’t bad when they do harmful things. They just make bad decisions. I believe my issue with understanding my sister is… I would never do anything to hurt her. I actually go out of my way to show her kindness. To show her forgiveness. However, she continues to dig her knife in my back. It’s overwhelming for me because I would never do that. I know this is my issue. I’m trying to find s way to live with it. ;). You always make me smile when I see you! ❀

      • I’m sorry that all this is happening to you. It’s really sad how much we can do for people we love and how much they can hurt us. I was in this situation but not with sister but with someone I love… I could do all for her, forgave her and always understood but she kept hurting me, pushing me away and treating me bad but I loved her and I forgave her and like you I was so in shock and couldn’t understand how she can say she loves me and keep hurting me and also because I would never do it to her, but everyone has some line, the edge to which when they are pushed it’s too much for them and all has ended… so I understand and I hope she will understand in time weekday she is doing to you and if not I’m sorry but only being in the same situation like you are now can make her understand or seeing what she lost when you will on the edge… I hope and wish you both peace and love and a lot, lot of talking, and even more love. You both deserve it. I hope I didn’t said anything what could upset you hun. You are really beautiful person… in every way. Thank you my dear πŸ˜ŠπŸ’‹πŸ’“

  21. If you could stop loving her so perhaps you’d stop being able to love anybody. And that would be truly sad. They don’t deserve that kind of sacrifice. Someday, what they have done will be a reckoning for them. I’m so sorry this happened to you. I’m not sure other than lust and giving in to that which we all know we shouldn’t, there is any other reason that she could give you. And even is she could, would there be any reason that would justify what she did and how you feel now? For what it’s worth, my two sisters both betrayed me in a very different way and certainly not to the extent that yours. But it was enough to gouge a hole out of my heart and make trusting them completely ever again a mammoth task. In fact my daughter and I were discussing that and somethings my mom did when I was a child that have left a lasting and negative legacy for me to bear. Forgiving eventually comes, sadly forgetting does not, nor do the scars ever completely heal. But just this week, I told the Lord that I was letting it all go and setting myself free from the weight and bondage of it all. It is not now nor was it then or ever who I am or what I’m capable of becoming. So upward and onward I shall go with what time I have left in this world, leaving what’s in the past, in the past. And good riddance! It is certainly long overdue. I sure hope you can do the same someday, sweet Carissa! Love and hugs, Natalie πŸ™‚ ❀

    • Oh my sweet Natalie ❀ thank for sharing your struggles. I’m so sorry you’ve had betrayals too. When it comes from a sibling or parent it feels like your own body is attacking you. It changes your whole being. Especially when your young.
      Your words are full of inspiring words and encouragement. I commend you for your actions of letting go. I know that was no easy task but once you do it… It felt like a weights been lifted. I’ve forgiven her years ago. My boy needed to see a unified front. It was a genuine action. However, she continues to betray me regarding my son. Things she allows him to do and things she tells him. I know I’ve got another boy that needs a mother who is full of happy thoughts. Somedays are just harder than others! Natalie I love your sweet words more than I can express. I’ve read your sweet encouraging quotes ever day and they always move me. You have the kindness soul! ❀

  28. 4 am thoughts are really deep. Deep enough to invoke and instill pain and joy at varying times. Sounds Apt… Wonderfully penned.

    A person of the world is whom you are, heartfelt emotions are what you share, sincerity towards others is second nature to you.
    Time looks as well as it ticks away at the severity of any hurt, pain, disaster or reverse.
    I know that you will get through all these things that have walked in your pathway, so now muster courage!
    Your sons are inspired by you and you the same; families, well we have no choice and our sense of duty has no boundaries!
    Wishing you the best of the good breezes that blow your way. . . . .!

  32. Hi Carisa…. Loved the poem! Beautiful! I have to admit I found you through some research. I am trying to track down our mutual friend Rob (The V-Pub)?? He has dropped off the planet (I pray not literally). His blog has been deleted and his email account is closed. I had several of his posts saved in my email and when I went to try and read them, the page had been deleted. After some probing, I found everything has been deleted back to Aug 2014 😦
    Do you have any clues? Can you find out? I am seriously concerned and I have no other way of reaching out to him. Since you guys have shared posts, I thought maybe you would know how to find him…..
