Devastating Break Up Heartbreak Blues Poem by Terence George Craddock (Afterglows Echoes Of Starlight)

Devastating Break Up Heartbreak Blues



when the light fades when soulless shade grey stays
when the sun lacks lamp shiny bright vigorous life heat
when the body is cast down in black gloom defeat beat

when the soul screaming cries as the heart bleeding dies
when the air has a void dead no circulation sterile dust taste
when the mind is running blind trapped in a lost blank bind

when skin is immune to feeling refreshing joyful wind breeze
when eyes of soul are down for the count on their dying knees
when depression heartache strips colour leaves grey freeze

the sorrow and pain of a break up
especially a break up that originated
in a deep pure soul consuming love

is a pain I would not wish on anyone

sorrow pain are soul destroyers
sorrow pain eat precious self esteem
sorrow pain eat self worth self belief

without self respect self confidence
how can a person develop inherent value
attain confidence healthy feel good happiness?

the sorrow and pain of a bad break up
can create pressures personal social anxiety
spectral fear less energy less motivation

perceptions of being worthless less attractive
an inability to cope increases negative thoughts
bad health difficulty getting out of bed to work

self confidence people do what they believe is right
can go the extra mile despite being mocked criticized
ridiculed for it; avoid bogged down perception details

the road to recover from sorrow pain a devastating break up

is by setting small easily attained small goal tasks
achieving them piling up success success successes
living in happy music happy songs happy memories

a few sad songs are ok in private if it releases feelings
allows a few private healthy tears to restoration healing flow
find a few new friends new interests see family old friends

a steep mountain is climbed with small steps required rest stops

now is the time to throw away a lifetime of ugly comments
those destructive seeds we shall discount discard throw together
attacks criticisms hurtful words resulting in negative thoughts

like I'm boring I'm stupid I'm ugly I'm worthless
I'm not good enough I'm undeserving I'm unlovable
I'm a bad person I'm abnormal we shall turn on head

into I'm interesting I'm exciting I'm smart I'm attractive
I'm pretty/handsome I'm worthwhile I'm good enough
I'm deserving I'm loveable I'm a good person I'm normal

I'm a unique wonderful person I will constantly repeat
my positives delete forever all negative fear scared thoughts
all people have some interests some skills they are good at

find these good vibes do these your best is good enough

remember setting small attained small goal tasks
achieving them piling up success success successes
living in happy music happy songs happy memories

remember your new world view life view personal view

repeat I'm interesting I'm exciting I'm smart I'm attractive
I'm pretty/handsome I'm worthwhile I'm good enough
I'm deserving I'm loveable I'm a good person I'm normal

negative thoughts are a drain on self confidence so are
negative people false friends avoid negative influences
walk away out of the dark rooms dark closet into the light

a failure attitude! I can't do anything right! replace it!
with tender healing kind forgiving beautiful phrases,
realize everyone makes mistakes, sometimes get excited!

replace fear failure with I bet I can do better next time!
choose realistic grounded goals take problems off at night!

always take problems worry off at night leave problems in the corner
if you must pick a few problems up the next day to carry in the day
remember take problems worry anxiety off at night leave it in a corner

now two big important ones

spectacular forgiveness compassion

this happy happy happy means

to forgive yourself
to forgive yourself
to forgive yourself

to forgive others
to forgive others
to forgive others

to live in love
to live in love
to live in love

to live in precious self respect
to live in precious self confidence
to live in precious self worth

to live in precious self belief
to live in precious self esteem
to live in precious self trust

to live in precious self love

live I'm interesting I'm exciting I'm smart I'm attractive
I'm pretty/handsome I'm worthwhile I'm good enough
I'm deserving I'm loveable I'm a good person I'm normal

welcome to the new you
welcome to a new life
welcome to a better life

you are not a jet setter
you are not a billionaire
you are not famous

keep it real
you are precious
you are unique

enjoy small things
enjoy small successes
celebrate successes

live I'm interesting I'm exciting I'm smart I'm attractive
I'm pretty/handsome I'm worthwhile I'm good enough
I'm deserving I'm loveable I'm a good person I'm normal

live a better life
live a happy life
live your potential

sometimes people must go
because like a precious flower
they are dying withering inside

with the sorrow of no light no sunshine
the pain of no water drying up from within
a suffocating death no light no sunshine

flowers are not meant to wither die in darkness

people often leave
not because they want to go
but because they cannot stay

The poem is written to address a healing need. It is deliberately long, because the topic is huge, and can be devastatingly painful, with wide reaching interconnected influences.

Painful topics are often socially avoided, break up is a part of reality, but the short and long term effect, depends upon the intensity of emotion, and techniques which address and resolve pain, thus the repetition of healing mantras. Love heals, confidence heals, pain anxiety trauma left ignored, do not, the poem is written for a specific audience.
