breakups, poetry, relationships, transformations

a bit of an announcement 

Just so people don’t worry, I’ll try to post here every day (more or less) to write about what’s going on, how I’m coping (or at least attempting to do so). But I’m primarily going to focus on what I did last year when everything blew up with John and do another one of my 30 Days of Poems projects, which I’ve always found healing and a way to vent my feelings and frustrations in a less direct way (some might call it passive-aggressive, but tomayto/tomahto, whatever). Not only does the search for the right poem help me concentrate on something other than myself for a while, finding one that expresses what I’m feeling offers a small comfort that I’m not the only one who’s ever felt broken apart like a Humpty Dumpty, never to be put back together again.

So you’ll still hear from me, but in smaller and more succinct ways (unless bigger disasters should befall me, in which all bets are off); you’ll get the added bonus of beautiful poetry, occasionally with an introduction explaining why that particular poem was chosen and how it spoke to me personally.

This will begin tomorrow morning. I hope you enjoy it.
