Hurting Poem

Yearning For You

I am a single mother to two wonderful boys. I have been divorced for over a year. I want to feel loved again and feel like I'm somebody again. I'm missing that special someone.

Warm Embrace

How I yearn for your warm embrace
Tears fall down my face
Can you see in my eyes
How much I hate our goodbyes
I think about you all the time
I know in the end we will be just fine
Touch me, love me, be with me
The way we are supposed to be
I've always wanted to be with you
And do the things that lovers do
Tell me you want to be with me
And that we were meant to be
Precious pain go away
Please don't come back another day
Dreaming of you
Is all I do
This fire I feel...sparks...heat...exotic...burning inside
My feelings for you I cannot hide
Wishing...hoping...yearning...wanting...needing you near
Can you tell how much I want you, dear?
I can't pretend anymore
It's you whom I adore
It's you whom I've been longing for
I just want to give you my heart
And I never want us to be apart
In the moonlight I wish on the stars that you were here
Instead of being there.
One day I will feel your warm embrace
And no more tears will fall down from my face

I've lost half my life. Living half alive isn't how it's supposed to be. Yes, we've all lost something, but this hurt me much. The scars in my heart cannot be replaced, though I think of you both every day knowing I can never pat your sweet little back or nuzzle your little soft face, nor hold onto you in despair. For I cry every day. These scars in my heart cannot be replaced. I've lost half my life, and that's not how it's supposed to be. (This poem is dedicated to my beloved cats)

I don't want to see you go home because it hurts when you're not here with me and I just don't want to lose you baby. I love you with all of my heart and soul.
