My Melancholy Heart
I go along feeling sort of okay,
Until I allow music into my day,
Then feelings come rushing back,
Reminding me of everything I lack.
He drank me in with his eyes,
I would look away, feeling shy.
He loved me gently, tenderly,
I gave him every part of me.
I thought I finally understood,
Love could actually be good,
I thought we lit the world on fire,
With our passion and desire.
He was the one love of my life,
For a short time I was his wife,
Until he up and changed his mind,
His love, his heart I could not find.
How could our love have been so wrong?
How could a love like ours just be gone?
I completely believed in what we had,
Now part of my heart is eternally sad.
I've left my Second Life for I'm aware,
I just can not move freely anywhere,
I'm so afraid I'd encounter him there,
He's ruined my magic realm, it's not fair.
I gaze at that world from beyond the door,
That fanciful place that I used to long for,
Now frightens me, since anyone can be,
Him in a new form, come to spy on me.
This lovely world of constant wonder,
So full of music it now pulls me under,
Back down into a state of melancholy,
Why do I long for what seems such folly?
Yes, I should "take back" what is mine,
My feelings immobilize me, and I find,
I must withdraw into my art each day,
just to find a way to be sort of okay.

This is possible one of the most beautiful renderings you have made. I, as few others can, do understand the depth of what inspired this and what it's true meaning is for you. A new start, so hard to do, but if the place holds the magic, then the gains may outweigh the losses. I hope to talk with you soon. Until then, don't give up. Think outside the melancholy box and see if there's a way to take it back in such a way that he cannot know to find you. Big hugs.

Dear Lyne, Thanks for these wonderful touching works. In both you can see and imagine your feelings. Understandable in this time of the year. I agree the beautiful words of BountifulKnight. I hope he can give you a better feeling.
Don't forget : Keep fighting.
