Is The End In Sight




The war has raged on for so many years, one battle after another, a bloody war of right and wrong. I have struggled to reach the mountain top only to be washed down by the bleeding of a wounded heart, nails clawing into the dusty dirt, raw and tender, I have refused to let go. Clinging to the hope that there is, that there will be a glimmer of a new day, somewhere within reach, amidst all this cannon fire and smoke, I have refused to let go. But, have I the strength left to hold on, the strength to fight another battle or is the end in sight for me? Perhaps it is time to surrender, time to raise the white flag smeared with the drying blood, time to lick my wounds and fade silently away.........

No, the end is NOT in sight. Let me offer you my tourniquet so that the bleeding can stop and the mountain top can be scaled. Here's to the new days! ((((HUGS))))

You can lick your wounds, but never, NEVER fade away!

You've come a long way my friend and we're not giving up since you're almost near the top. {{{XOXOX}}}

perhaps changing your metaphor may help; battles always mean someone looses or 'wins'. perhaps this is beyond battles.

Never surrender my friend. Surrender equates regret. And regret is horrible.

Look at my issues. *wink* Stay well my friend.

Stephen:

If this is over another man, I am going to kick your butt. Don't ever place another over your own damned self. I don't care how fine he is or how much he completes you. You are a special guy. If the love is not returned, then it is not meant to be. There are billions upon billions of people on Earth. Why wallow so much over one person?

Yeah... I have been there before. It is a horrible experience. But the best thing you can do is to not even think or OBSESS about him for at least three weeks. Get him out your head. Go meet others. Then you'll see that familiar thing you love so much about him in others... and you'll be able to move on or deal with the bigger picture better.

I don't mean to jump your ass... but I have been in your situation. I am just trying to pick you up, give you a slap, and say "SNAP OUT OF IT!"

Hope it helped. ;)

Listen to the ur-spo. And get out a little more, it doesn't help to focus too narrowly.
