It’s not often I get a comment on my blog that’s a poem. I had written a post called getting over heartbreak and this reader happened to find it when googling heartbreak. I read this and was very touched. I decided to put it up because I believe expression is part of healing.

Hello! I read your post “Getting Over Heartbreak” from Sept. 2012 on The Greatrnk’s site which I found while doing a google search on “how to get over heartbreak”. I loved your article (and now love your Blog!) It was really helpful. It compelled me to write my pain down which resulted in the following (and it DID help):
The pain of infidelity: My world came crashing down on me. All my dreams were shattered. My grief is destroying my life. I am totally, completely devastated. Secrets… Lies… Emotional abuse… Verbal abuse… Infidelity… Isolation… Contempt… Pain…
I have died inside. I have been rocked, beaten, betrayed, Bludgeoned, belittled, and broken to my core. I am soul-less – my light, My flame, my essence has been smote. My self, my soul has been dealt A lethal blow. The person I was, the “me” who I And others knew was killed by infidelity. I don’t know who I am anymore. I am lost and alone…broken.
