I was on another post (one of your poems I believe) when I saw a comment relating to this…

Hi, Osasu. It took me years to get to the point where I felt I could write that piece.

When I was writing it I was very careful to write it either neutrally or replicate the mindset/feelings I had at the time. Not the best idea, as that kind of thing sticks to you for a while, but it did help to capture the moment.

The truth is as I was nearing the ending I realized I was still a little bitter. I gave, I gave, I gave, and she still left. Trying to write the ending properly I was forced to deal with that. In doing so I got my clarity and closure. Writing this worked out the last bitter feelings and allowed me to close it on a more positive note. I actually finally understood things clearly. No more bitterness and complete total forgiveness.

So, it wasn’t until I wrote it all, laid it all out as honestly as possible, that this ending came about. Healing through writing, indeed. :)

Thank you so much for your kind words, they mean a lot to me.
