And so it has come to pass that nothing will come to pass.

Nut and I have had ‘the’ conversation. I’ve come to understand that he is still healing and not ready to move from grieving just yet.

Though I know that if I were the one to fire his senses as he has fired mine the story would be different.

I felt a fine sliver of a knife slide through me that I cannot say was totally unexpected. Tears were a welcome relief. I knew from the moment I realised that I had feelings that they were coming.

A brilliant thunder storm, lightening and lashings of rain fell all night as if my sadness were being swept across London washing all my feelings into every nook and cranny. I stared out at the darkness for hours assessing my feelings and working out how to move forward with the friendship.

I had hoped.

Sadness is my companion today. It will be for a while. I want it to be. To be reminded that love is more than what it used to be, when it was all wanting/consuming/selfish/desperate/exclusive. Not all love comes to the idealistic fruition.

And I am happy that I can feel and take chances and hope and love again.

I understand the wilderness he is roaming in post break up, the loss, the pain. When you’ve poured everything you have and everything you are into a relationship and then lost it; lost yourself you get stuck in a state of limbo. Looking back at how good it used to be, how bad it became and with hope, futile hope that something could be redeemed.

I hope he heals. I hope the pain lifts and happiness settles where it once was.

I too looked backwards for a long time. My heart broken and my spirit crushed; I had wounds that stayed open and weeping for years. My life began to pass by me. It was disabling and hard but doesn’t last forever if you don’t let it. I woke up one morning years later and decided that I would start laughing and living and loving again. It never left completely but I manage it now, it does not manage me.

I am lucky. I still believed in love. Bitterness left me and I am open to happiness.

Friends came and I loved them and they unknowingly lifted me and bought trust back into my life.

When hope dies a little light goes out and it takes me time to adjust my eyes.

Here I am again; that light went out last night. I stumbled for a few hours. Feeling blindly around in the darkness, salty cheeked.

But my cup is half full.

I will mourn hope.

It will grow somewhere else again in the near future. Of this I’m sure.

When I count my blessings; Nut is one

He is a good and loving friend and I’m fortunate to have him as one and he I.

        writing my friend is good way to let the feelings out and to heal i did it myself back in april this years when my heart was full of shock and my eyes full of tears when my life felt worthless and with feelings of despair i paced up and down and didnt sleep felt the world didnt care care then i prayed and asked for help and our lord to guide me
        and started writing once again my poetry my feeling came out my body started feeling this was a test and someone somehow there was something better for me someone more special someone indeed i joined a dateing site and moved forward fast and started to believe .

        you can do this to my friend
        keep smiling each day
        one step at a time
        little bye little it will go away
        you can do this
        remember your special
        in life as we all are indeed
        i know how you feel
        take a good luck at your self
        take a good look indeed
        look at your good qualities
        and grab the bull by the horns
        and take each opportunity
        which comes your way
        you will come back out fighting
        and life will once again feel rosey
        your smile will light up your beautiful personality
        your face will be grinning from cheek to cheek

        i hope this helps my friend dont let anyone every hurt you again

    I have been following your story with Nut. I read, transfixed. You write so eloquently. Keep ’em coming! – K

      Aw thanks Katya. I think our exsisting friendship will survive but as for anything more there is no hope 😦
      So i’m now all about managing my feelings and my poems all reflect that at the moment.
