Like Giving Birth (Poem)

Like Giving Birth (Poem) I don’t miss you. I really don’t. I only miss the idea of a perfect you, but even that is a difficult dream to conceive. Like giving……….

I don’t miss you,
I really don’t.
I only miss the idea
of a perfect you,
but even that
is a difficult
dream to conceive.
Like giving birth
to a twenty
pound baby.
I’ll never be
the same again,
talk about
a stretch
of the imagination.
I think the scars
will take a
lifetime to heal.
I might even
walk away
a little differently,
but that’s just
how I feel.

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
