My New Begining

Poem By Shelly Price

It never ceases to amaze me,
how life continues to change.
One minute, one hour, one day you're here...
and the next, life has been re-arranged.

The two of our lives were so inner-mingled,
I never imagined us living apart.
But here I am standing alone at a crossroad...
with a brand new life, making a brand new start.

I never wanted to go it alone...
in you I thought I'd won the grand prize.
But for some, when the going gets tough...
the tough politely wave their good byes.

It only hurts when I breathe...
breathing in and out an emptiness so vast.
I'm lost in a desert oasis, where I thirst...
unable to fly my colors of life at full mass.

I continue to search relentlessly...
trying to find myself buried within the debris.
Daily I rediscover pieces from the wreckage...
of a person that I know can only be me.

A million insecurities I face with fear...
they come racing at me in my head.
Today I choose to face those fears...
and bury the life with you that is dead.

Come...go...stay...leave...
which direction will I finally take?
Indecision is not an option for me anymore...
the right choices for me I now must make.

I know you'll put your money on my failure...
you don't think I can play to win.
Today I must move on without you...
without you is where I now will begin.

This is great i can relate to your words so well. I have been in this place once, it is hard but time does actually heal - although it sounds cliche.
