That Feeling

It was that feeling in my gut

When I heard you say the words,

The words that broke my heart and sent my knees to the floor.

I had imagined our lives, together and apart,

But I never could have imagined the hurt you brought on with so few words.

You said it wasn't my fault, no one's fault at all,

You thought that this was best for me,

But that wasn't your call.

I tried so hard to feel again, something other than the bruise

That formed when you told me you were someting I had to lose. 

Here I stand now recovered and brand new,

I've learned to love again.

But I am left to wonder if I will ever find a way

To forget that poignant feeling that you left with me that day.

that feeling shows us how human we are. a marker in time, and for lack of better words "A scar", not to disappear, but through new love, forgotten.
