Notice of absence from LIZ


Of being nice! Of being good! Of being real! Of being true! Of losing sleep. Of being still! Of saying yes! I want to scream!

Of painful ends with no regrets! Of fake connections that don't last.

Of guarding dreams I got on hold! Of burning tears I cry alone!

Of wishing, of hoping, of caring too much. Of wanting to hide the things I hold close. Of sad broken hearts that fracture my soul. Of loving so deep, but feeling so lost.

Of touching rough hands that choke all my love; and this might just be, what hurts me the most!

    I understand the β€˜ being tired β€˜ I’m tired of a lot of things too ..

    A sad but good writing

    It’s always helpful to try and let go of things or to even feel better

    • LIZ

      You're absolutely right! This is my way of releasing!! It has to come out somehow!!! We can't allow those feelings to eat us alive!!! Thank you so much!! πŸ’ 🌹🌸 🏡

    • peto

      Obviously exhausting LIZ
      Please don't give up on the hoping and caring
      You make many a day with these said trains
      A wee glimpse at your vulnerability
      "Real true"
      Excellent switch up

      • LIZ

        I truly appreciate you! This means a lot! Purging feelings! You know? Hope will always be alive for me! I promise! Thank you!!!

        • LIZ

          🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣 see, I knew you'd make me feel better!! Bring on the corny jokes! It's your trademark at this point! 🀣

          • orchidee

            Aww, why do some run a mile from my jokes, and feel depressed? Has another doom and gloom 'bus' arrived yet (you know!). Arrgghhh! lol.

            Hey Lizzy, there's definitely a song in here so wonderful I think I rapped my way through. Emotions rife. πŸ’–

              river rise, India
              (our spirited clay of self
              is moulded
              by the kind hands that nourish
              and cherish us for who we are
              but also
              by those rough hands that betray
              our trust..
              River rise, carry her to a place
              where peace my once again
              grace and sweeten her breath..)
              'stay' strong, oh lioness Poet
              roar your Poetry and let it loose
              find that next smile, awaiting you

              • LIZ

                How.....how....honestly, how is it you know all my favorite songs? I actually listened to this one....after I wrote this!! 😳 Thank you very much! You know we have to release it all somehow. This is the outlet for me. I appreciate your kind words! Don't worry, one thing I'm sure of is, God's got us!!! By the way, I believe I found that next smile!! πŸ™‚

                • L. B. Mek

                  one of my fav's as well
                  if you ever get a chance, try n watch her perform it live
                  it's a truly otherworldly experience

                • Pop64

                  The expression of being too tired of it all, wanting to give up, comes through with clarity. But, never give up, let the one spark that may remain ignite the fire of all your strength, all that can still be possible. By writing of it all, it allows you and the reader to be tired, but to not stop.

                • LIZ

                  Absolutely! This is how I release! I definitely belive anything is possible. One thing about me, I'll never give up on....hope...love. I'm too stubborn! 😊 Thank you very much!!!

                  I came here earlier today before going to work and I loved it then ..

                  I came back this evening before going to bed and I loved it even more ..

                  I think perhaps I should just type amazing this time around to prevent me from cumming and going again ... maybe πŸ’œ

                • LIZ

                  NEVILLE, NEVILLE, NEVILLE!!! Ayyyyyyy you have me over here talking Spanish! Gracias!!! πŸ’œ

                  An emotional roller coaster can leave you exhausted. I can feel the pain in your words. So glad that you find release in expression, it truly does purge. I've included a link to a video of Madelaine Kahn, from the movie "Blazing Saddles", singing "I'm tired", thought it might give you a chuckle.

                  • LIZ

                    πŸ˜† Ohhhh thank you very much Bella! I needed that!!!!! ❀️❀️❀️

                  • Introverted Sage

                    Damn.. this one hit deep.. couldn't even finish the full song!
                    These waves come in and while reminding us what was taken from us, also remind us who we are, who we have behind us and give us strength and wisdom to accept nothing less than what we deserve!
                    Love this!!!

                  • LIZ

                    Awwwww thank you!!!! πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ I'm humbled! And right? We can learn and grow from these experiences! As difficult as they are! I appreciate you!
