Roads I Can't Leave Behind

                           I stood on a stage where I assumed I couldn't be fixed...
                          I thought a broken heart was the end as my clock ticked...
                 Then the curtains were raised and I saw many that were the same...
                            Through words and frienships I could erase the blame...
                                  I wiped away reflections that haunted my walls...
                                    But I built up wisdom for the next time it falls...
                       Left with a heart made with undried tears and invisable cracks...
                                          But a stronger soul that stays intact...
                                        Strange as it may seem I need the pain...
                                      Because when all is well it keeps me sane...

    So true...but we must move away from bitterness!!! I just learned that not long ago...which makes sense when you think abt it.

    Michael, your poem is reflecting on reality, sometimes the thoughts we can't leave alone,,, keeps us sane. But, once the curtains are down, I don't think I want 2 feel the same part of me. I want insanity~LOL~does that make sense to you. I'm tired of trying to fix things. I think the secret is leaving and assuming. I love your top line. "I stood on a stage where I assumed I couldn't be fixed" I love it~~ strange as it may seem..pain is what keeps the sane part of us intact... xox~PD
