yup, that\'s exactly my MO
in relationships
give it all you got, leave no room for regret
but listen and Trust, your instincts
if someone\'s influence in your life is negative,
draw your line,
wish them the best
and move on
to Your: Next!
(great message, thanks for sharing)

Looking for the best is the way to go Dakota, it as all we can do and by using that best we can help others.

\'Peace with everyone
can be found once we find peace for ourselves.

You can only blame your problems
on one person and that person is yourself.

Do not worry about acceptance of others
stare in the mirror - unveil, your self-hating covers.\'
profound insights, distilled - simplified
for easy consumption and relatable accessibility..
thank you! for choosing to share, your gleaned wisdom
(If you are at peace you are living in the present. Lao Tzu)
(There are three methods to gaining wisdom.
The first is a reflection, which is the highest.
The second is a limitation, which is the easiest.
The third is experience, which is the bitterest. Confucius)

there is real potential in your writing
(in my humble opinion)
it just, feels like
you\'re writing these lines
as if, you\'re talking to yourself
and sadly
we, the rest of the world
aren\'t: clever enough, to understand
your meaning
unless, you make it a little clearer for us
\'But I live behind a smile
that I think kills hate,
so typical and hypocritical
cause the the same smile I give the world
the one looking back at my
and I hate all things fake.\'
still, thank you for sharing
an interesting read
(this was meant to be an encouraging comment
please, forgive me
if you find it rude or offensive, in any way;
just in case: I\'s gladly apologise, sincerely
in advance)

L. B. Mek said:

I say forget, the monk
your very questioning is answering - away, all your doubts, to the very value: in worth
of self, of others, of existence; who cares - anyway?
just you do you, and with defiant pride - too
maybe you\'ll be whispered the answers, or not,
what matters: is that with each obstacle
you choose to overcome, you exclaim - loud
\'this is me of today, and that\'s ok
because today\'s me
insures I survive, to greet
that blank page
of tomorrow\'s: possibility\'...
(a great read! thanks for sharing and inspiring my little scribbled reply)

The line that stood out for me is \"Frankly my mind is twisted I\'m pretty slow but gifted\". Aren\'t we all?

Clara said:

Oh this speaks to me of the pain of moving on. Faced with great uncertainty and fear. Hoping it\'s not all for nothing. The doubts we all face, shading our hopes. Protecting our hearts. You\'ve captured this beautifully - that\'s my take on it anyways. Am I on the right track?

Empty heart
Clara said:

\'Did we even exist?

I try my best to live but life has it turns and twist.

So reach in my chest and find a blood filled void.

It’s where the heart should be but it was forgotten and destroyed.\'

Those last few lines... Wow. Emotive, indeed. A blood filled void. You\'ve rendered me speechless, really. Rather brilliant.

\'But what does it mean to write words that will never be read like a tree that falls in a Forrest with no witness.\'
if a tree falls in a Forrest, its fellow trees bare witness,
if a writer shares his efforts continuously - eventually, people will read and appreciate it,

Empty heart
Goldfinch60 said:

Very emotive write but if you reach further inside yourself you will find your heart and it is still beating and will get stronger as you go further into the wonder of life that is in front of you.

Heartless Heartache

Everyone wants to be loved with that kind of selfless love.
Doesn’t always work out that way but you live, learn, and become better!

Slow down
jarcher54 said:

Thanks for taking a number of common pieces of advice and ideas--like keep your head up and dream big and don\'t look back--and putting them together smoothly, sweetly, and full of little surprises and twists. I suspect you aren\'t the first to say that life is a one-way trip, but you worked it in so naturally. The sincerity comes through, the good-natured mentor, summing it all up in a sort of what\'s-it-all-mean pep talk. And of course you failed to totally heed your own advice... in the most poignant passage you recall huddling in the van on a frosty morning. Looking back hurts, but it can be lovely.

Wow! A lot of emotions in this one! I love the raw emotions that you put in this. I could feel the words as I read it.

The art of pain
Goldfinch60 said:

Pain can be in our lives in many forms but your strength comes through in your words and with that strength you will be able to move on and eventually conquer pain.

A song stuck in my head

This reminds me of the poem I wrote called my beautiful secret did you read it 👀

This was very takes on a journey in a way...i liked the parts about how your significant other lives in cy er space instead ifin the real media addicts are not relation ship worthy if u ask me...they live in a fantasy land which can be extremely detrimental in a relationship and usually ends up being so

Lack of and inappropriately placed punctuation has left me confuse about this piece. Use of commas would have helped i think. Placing question marks in strange places e.g. \"take a look how much money?\" just led to several re-reads in a failed attempt to understand.

Gave up trying to make sense of this thinking it is probably just a rant written in the heat of the moment.

I fail to see the point of all the bad grammar and intentional mis-spellings.
