    No crashing boom, no loud words, just a mildly delivered life plan which no longer includes me.

    I spent the last month wondering what life would be like if I settled down with her, only to find out today she spent it wondering what it would be like without me. That's a new twist on an old friend... pain. Well, it's certainly been quite some time, pain, it seems inevitable that those fleeting moments of happiness always lead back to you.

    Depart from me, you bastard, happiness, I never knew you.

    Yeah...it sucks. I've been there before. I'm still kinda there now. It's a sticky situation. How long were you together?

    One of my favorite quotes that helps me get through the tough times (it's not very inspirational, but it's still accurate):

    In three words I can sum up everything I know about life: It goes on.

    Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
    Because their words had forked no lightning, they
    Do not go gentle into that good night...

    Wild men, who caught and sang the sun in flight
    And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way
    Do not go gentle into that good night.


    Rage, rage against the dying of the light...

    that's beautifull,

    Personally i learned that you should never go into a relationship with the expectation that it works out, reality is that a woman can pack her bags and leave anyday. Remember that its YOU who make YOU happy. Therefore bring the power of your life happyness back where it belongs, namely in your hands.

    It ought to be, it was written by one of the greatest alcoholic poets ever. Dylan Thomas.

    I disagree. Contentment is a solitary thing, until its shared and multiplied a thousandfold by someone you love, where it becomes happiness. Contentment is solitary, happiness is shared.

    I feel your pain. I don't put that kind of effort into posting here, but I often write in much the same way to express the horror I feel in losing someone. It feels as though to gain means solely to lose.

    I thought guys were supposed to be the ones who always wanted to leave and have commitment issues, and girls clingy and aching to settle down.

    Yet all I see is the opposite....

    When a woman loses a man, she picks up her life as before and perseveres. But when a man loses a woman, he dies by half.

    True

    And why are "they" supposed to be driven by emotions, while we are the ones who are driven by logic and sense.

    I got my best smile on, but it’s no disguise
    It don’t hide the pain in these eyes

    I did her so wrong, for so long
    Turned my back on her love, now she’s long gone
    I did my part, to break her heart
    She walked out on me, and tore my world apart
    She used to be mine
    Oh, she used to be mine

    It’s taken every bit of strength that I have
    To keep a hurt look off of my face
    I can’t keep from lookin’ back over my shoulder
    At the lucky man takin’ my place
    Oh, if it weren’t for my pride, I’d probably take off runnin’
    Guess what I’m feelin’, is what I got comin’


    God, I wish I had kissed you last night, but you've never cheated... and I refuse to turn you into what I am... -sigh-

    See, this is one of those quotes that sounds really good, but is completely baseless and untrue.

    I've never felt so alive.

    Enough that the Neruda poem rings true.

    Cussler, channelling MacDonald, I think..

    If you want to learn how to write expressively, start there...
