She's Happy


He's everything she needs

Gracing her paper with ink

Blooming from every seed

She's full up to the brink


But each stanza it attacks me

The truth I cannot undo

You're everything I need

I can't stop loving you

  • Comment from author about the poem: This short poem is about the heartache that comes with seeing an ex with a new partner. Wanting to be happy that they're happy but full of jealousy at the same time. Hope you enjoy.

    THANKS FOR SHARING SAMI ~ It happens so I can empathise ! Trouble is often an ex will live in our community and his / her new partner may even be a "friend" ! This amplifies the angst especially if we still love them. In my experience getting myself a new love (not always as easy as it seems !) eases the pain of "lost love" and enables one to move on ! A beautifully constructed and written poem. I like the ambivalence in you comment ~ You want your ex and his new partner to be happy but joy is overruled by "it should be me " JEALOUSY ! Thanks for caring - Yours BRIAN

      Hi Sam,
      I enjoyed her 'Happiness' and your 'unhappiness',especially the way it was expressed in your first poem "Carved into Trees". Actually you might have given me an idea.We'll see...
      When it comes to matters of Love,sometimes you are ahead,sometimes you are behind.....Surely there must be a good reason for her to be an EX...Keep writing.. Hopefully not for HER,again??!!

        Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm intrigued by this idea, do keep me updated!! Yes you're right, she is an ex for a reason and I probably shouldn't be wasting my time on her BUT poetry is a form of therapy and this is all helping, I guess. The deepest emotions create the most meaningful poems.
