Notice of absence from HannahElisabeth
Taking a long overdue mental health vacation. I will check in when I can.

When I said I needed space


Some calm after the storm


I really needed your embrace,


Some safety and some warmth


So tell me,


How it feels to break


The things you meant to love


Your heart was never mine to take


And mine was not enough

    beautiful subtle rhyming in here dear Hannah, sometimes we have to simply love ourselves, it's surely better for our souls. hugs to you.

  • Neil Higgins

    Glad you let go Hannah,and got your space.When my first and only long standing relationship hit rock bottom,and we called it a day,I went hill walking in Scotland to clear my soul.I was alone for a very long time after,but my mind settled down,and finally I became me again.

    • HannahElisabeth

      Funny you should say that Neil, he was from Scotland and we almost visited once. I'd still love to visit someday.

      I'm very much enjoying my me time and getting back to nature and myself. Slowly but surely

      Sadness and loss will always leave us with the pain of unanswered questions which cheat our perception. Time does it's healing thing and reason begins it's return to our lives. Time spent alone is so important when regaining strength and wise words on paper refresh the memories of newfound wisdoms.

    • L. B. Mek

      we've all been there
      for most of us, on both sides
      of that blame coin;
      left, tossed - dropped and scarred
      scared, of reaching for once attainable heights
      all cos, a mistake or a misunderstanding
      that regret translated, as either - of us
      not caring, enough
      to prevent, the inevitable potential for demise
      in all our choices...
      wonderfully honest, thanks for sharing dear poet
