1. Perhaps it’s a difference in personality but might I suggest a different tack? If you want to get over someone then stop writing about them (says the CaveDad who Blogs about his divorce, right?) Or at least stop writing as if you are pining for that person. Your poetry is beautiful so I know you are aware that your words have power. The power in those words comes from thoughts which come from feelings which come from emotions. Emotions that will keep returning and overwhelming you if left unchecked. I say this because I don’t believe that strong emotions have a counterbalance other than conscious thought. If you’re using that conscious thought to put your emotions into words than you’re just fueling the fire.

    Alternatively, if you are simply channeling hypothetical emotion to make poetry than by all means keep going. I am enjoying it. =)


  2. I so relate. But I have been able to let go by remembering how I felt with the problems we had, rather than romanticizing, which I have a tendency to do. I have to force myself to remember the bad times to keep myself empowered. He was and is the inspiration for my blog and my better life.
