all of my work is written from life experiences. i do my best work when i am emotional about something. There is a story behind every poem.
I'm sitting here everyday with this heaviness in my heart that wont go away. Losing you unleashed all the pain of past loses that I harbored away for so long. I used to ask myself how many heartbreaks can one heart take? Well now I know, losing you was the final break that shattered my heart completely. No matter what I do, I just don't feel whole anymore. So much has been taken from me in life but I'd always been good at hiding and ignoring the pain; now there's just to much, to much to hide, to much to ignore. I feel the sadness of every loss slowly consume me, like the darkness consuming the night sky, Lost in the memories of everything I've lost, drowning in the thoughts of everything I still have lose; how does one get through the losses to come when your already completely broken©M.

Watching every one around you living the life you've always dreamed ofGets more and more heartbreaking with each passing year Knowing that the more time goes by the less likely you are to ever get what you want, Is a different kind of sadnessI wouldn't expect you to understand©wordsleftunspoken

Battle of heart and mind
Having the feeling something is offYet never knowing if It's your intuition speaking Or the insecurities from past bullshit causing you to over think©M. Papineau©wordsleftunspoken

So you're not where you thought you'd be in life You've made mistakes that you regretYour getting older and wish your life was differentHaven't we allAre you gonna sit there and feel bad for yourselfBe depressed and let the rest of your life pass bylost in regret and what ifs'Or are you gonna let go of the past that can't be changedAnd embrace the future that can be whatever you make itWhen you look back in ten years from now Do you want to look at ten more years of regret and depressionOr ten years of progress and accomplishmentsGet up off your ass, pull yourself togethertake control of your life and emotionsAnd make the rest of your life the best life it can beThere's no chance of changing the pastBut there is a chance to change your future©M.

" How does it feel to be dying"? She asked him.."It feels like all these beautiful pieces of life are flying around me, and im trying to catch them. When my child falls asleep in my lap, I try to catch the feeling of her breathing against me. When I make my kids laugh, I try to catch the sound of the laughter coming up from their chest. But the pieces are moving faster now and I can't catch them all, I can feel them slipping through my finger tips, and soon where there use to be my child breathing and my children laughing there will be...nothing! I know it feels like you have all the time in the world but you don't. So stop playing it so cool!Catch the moments of your life, catch them while your young, and quick; because sooner than you know it, you'll be old and slow and there will be no more of them to catch. Best scene from "This is us"
A city boy and a country girlTryin' to make a life in this old world We're going against the grain and against all odds But It don't matter what they say, I'm gonna love you anyway Thier doubt can't undo what you've gone and done to my heart©wordsleftunspoken
As everyone is surrounded by family on Christmas eve opening gifts and making memories, I sit here alone with the silence, wishing I had that too©wordsleftunspoken
I see you
When I look at you I don't just see your looksI see your beautiful soulWhen I listen to you talk I don't just hear your wordsI hear your kind and caring heartWhen I hear about your life Im not just hearing your past mistakesIm hearing of all your accomplishmentsWhen I look at you I see a man who is trying to right all his wrongs,A man who's learned from his past and who is working toward a better futureI see a man who's trying his hardest to be a good dad even when obstacles may stand in his wayA man who would protect his freinds and family at any costI see a man that looks at life with an open mind and appreciates the small things life has to offerWhen I look at you I see a smile that brightens any room But beyond that smile I see you, All of you, always©Melissa Papineau©wordsleftunspoken
