What's Weighing Heavy on My Heart

I just feel compelled to say
what's weighing heavy on my Heart
but you've moved on, no wish to stay
or speak of what drove us apart.
It wounds me so, now that I know
you no longer care for me.
While I think of you- still dream of you!
You chill me with your apathy

*Very simple piece; I'm feeling rather placid and docile tonight ;)

    I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling rather down. Is everything currently okay with you? I can relate to such feelings. Simple, succinct, and heartfelt what often times makes great poetry. Good job partner. Raise that head up now.

    Yes so heart wrenching. A feeling so many have felt. Yet believe all things happen for a reason and one day you will see it true. Enjoyed this poem very much and such heart felt sentiment. Best of luck in your way. Great write!

    Dear ____________, Your emotions are laid bare for all to see. It must have been very hard for you to express your feelings about the relationship, but in my opinion, you did an exceptional job. Allan

    Man that would definitely cause bad dreams. I see why you worried; but I hope this is one less worry for you now ;) After all; Sophia seems like a mind that will require you to be on your toes!! lol Loved her Rosaline poem!

    When I left, he swore he would kill himself, so for many years I worried he might have actually killed himself; I didn't know. He was very nonchalant when I spoke to him, telling me "no worries" etc. when I brought it up, just sweeping it under the rug. I really won't have closure until I tell him why I left, and I left because of his alcoholism.

    I had to talk to him because I badly needed closure. In the poem, when I say I think of you, dream of you, it's true. I still have dreams about him and New Zealand and when that bad earthquake hit Christchurch a few years ago we he lives, I couldn't help but to wonder about his well being. BRB

    lol Thanks FJ, but it not about Ricky. I found my New Zealand ex on FB and we had a conversation last night and he was basically indifferent. Our relationship did not end well and I have carried a lot of guilt over the years, and apparently now, for no good reason at all. Oh, well. At least we have closure now and I can discard the guilt, so at least one good thing came from it :)

    Geez mate, you really aren't in a good place. Best of luck my friend, and may the night get better.

    lol Trust me, Scott; I know EXACTLY what you mean. When I'm feeling low, snuggling with my babies always makes me feel better. I talked to my ex last night on FB, the one from NZ, and instead of the vitriolic hatred I expected, I was met with indifference, which, to me, is much worse than hatred. Some kind of emotion is better than no emotion, you know?

    I just turned and hugged my dog. So the best advice I can give is 'hug a pet'.
