About the Poem

I broke up with my girlfriend two months ago. She was the first person I have ever truly been in love with. It took me quite a while to finally come to peace with myself over our breakup. I wrote this after sitting down one night and thinking about life in general and why we go through the hardships that we do. I realized everybody, or almost everybody losses some one they love and you learn to live with it.

And by doing that, you are able to help some one else who is going through it because you have been there, and you understand their feelings.

Peace Of Mind

Have you had cold showers of pain
My friend, you've stood in my rain
Deathly feeling of loneliness
No need to feel shameless
I've been there before
Not wanting to feel any more
Your hearts been broken in half
Mind still living in the past
Cold dark thoughts of suicide
Why don't I do it tonight
Don't worry it will go away
Learn to love another day
Put it in the back of mind
Let it rest and you will find
Dark clouds begin to part
New love will mend the heart
Thoughts of suicide disappear
Self- esteem will reappear
One day you'll be able to say
My friend you've stood in my rain

Beautiful Dreamer
Let me just say that when I read your poem, I saw my ex-boyfriend in you. I saw the same voice and spirit, but he's simply not as strong. I've kept in contact with him for a few months now, and a few times, I had reason to fear that my complete absence could cost him his life. I recently left your poem out where he could see it. Thank you, thank you so much. You finally reached him.
