I wrote it after a man whom I loved dearly broke my heart, and it spun me into a downward spiral of severe depression.  After writing this, I felt a little better.  Now I share it with you.

The Harbour
by ~Ellie Waldner
copywrighted 2007
(last change Aug. 3, 2008)

~Not willingly her mind takes her
from the chill clear mountain peak and down,
down where subconscious thought lies ugly and dark.
The memory of Them is there beyond the pain;
all that followed, an ugly wound.
Her mind will beckon her to original comfort...
Through the gate into the black valley
where rain falls incessantly,
the travail of the path less arduous.
Winding down to the harbour she goes,
and now she will pass,
soon the soft lilt of the ocean waves
will carry her away, she embracing cold
on a cloud of other consciousness
to where They lived happily...
where I was sure he loved me.~

Wonderful poem.

I understand its sentiment well. My own life full of rejection of supposed loves, people I thought loved me, only to cheat on me and break my heart.

I am sorry for your pain. I empathize with it a great deal. Keep fighting for you, and dreaming and writing.

I wasn't strong enough the day you replied to say a thank you, so I will say one today.

Thank You for your kind words, and I'm sorry you've felt such pain in your own heart.

No worries. I've been there. I hope your strength and rebounds and this day is grander than the last.
