I went FISHING one day.......................

I grabbed my fishing pole and headed to the lake. I sat on the grass and baited my hook. It was a very cloudy day. I sat there thinking over everything that happened two years ago, and what went wrong. Was I so naive and innocent and sheltered that I didnt see it coming? Yes, I definitely was. I was thinking of him when the rain started coming. It was pouring down (tears). I knew I had to pick myself up off the ground, but how could I? How could I go on without my soulmate? I slowly got up, I grabbed my pole and reeled my heart back in, I grabbed the tackle box and put my soul back in it. I headed to the car and put the fishing stuff in the back. I was thinking,how can you go on meeting the man who made all those wonderful plans with you, the wedding, the finances, everything!! Thats what he wanted to do, but I cant, too much happened, too much pain, everytime we would have met, I would have thought about all the future plans we had made. Nope, I cant do that. So I thru my hopes and dreams in the trunk too and closed it, shutting him out of my life now. I got in the car and started driving. It finally stopped raining.................and I looked up and saw a RAINBOW, and I knew I would be alright.
It ended almost a year ago, and I have cried many tears over that man. I will never be able to give my heart and soul to another man, that kinda pain is something I never want to go thru again. I am getting too old for that kinda chit, lol. We have emailed each other on occasion just to keep in touch, and he knows he will always have a special place in my heart, ALWAYS.
So I thought, maybe I will go fishing again, one thing about fishing, if you dont like what you catch, you can throw it back in!!!!!!!!!!!
Then again, I realized I dont need to go fishing, I need to be thankful for what I have.
I wonder what is on the other side of a RAINBOW?

Right on girl, Love can really suck at times. Don't give up fishing all together you deserve to be happy and you never know when you'll land the big one. Just don't expect it that way when it happens you'll enjoy it alot more when you do land the keeper. S.F.

So clever, comparing it to a fishing expedition!!! Sometimes it's hard to reel in a good one; nothing out there biting, or they steal the bait and leave you with an empty hook and a jerk on the line...

And life does go on, don't ever let him make your heart shark bait, it's amazing you're still speaking to him...for your sake i hope that happens less and less, and something much better swims your way...

Girlfriend, you deserve your share of the caviar, why settle for tuna salad????

and thanks for reading my poetry blog, and your kind comments

brylynt,I am lmao at "the jerk on the line", thats too funny
Oh, it took quite a LONG time before I started talking to him again. It hurt too much, but I have no enemies and the pain eased with each passing day, it was a long, long, journey getting to that point though. We dont email each other very often either. I only wish him happiness. I will always love him and cherish the moments we had together. Thanks for telling me what I needed to hear. HAGD

mzhunyhole, its nice to know others have been thru it too. Finding your soulmate and then loosing it is very heartbreaking. Seems thats a once in a lifetime thing. I will put one foot in front of the other. I hope it does get better. Thanks alot and HAGD

That is a very interesting response. I have been following a similar plan. I'm comfortable with myself, and while I do miss the intimacy I search for no one.

If a new mate for keithcancook is out there, she will present herself in due time. Or not. Either way, I am not going to stress over it.

I haven't fished since I was a kid, but I know you cast out a line in hope and sometimes that hope's fulfilled. But you keep on fishing, regardless of the previous time's catch, and surprises bite on the line when you least expect.

Keep living, doing the things that in themselves make you feel good, gently reach out from time to time and things will happen.

Love the metaphor of fishing. I can hear the reel whirring as you cast the next line.

Lovely story and the metaphor is wonderful....Been fishing myself for awhile.....I had to throw a handful of the earth over my soul-mate...will there be another? Kind of like kissing a pond full of frogs hoping that one will turn into a princess....but then again that is a fairy tale.....

In real life there are so many women....so many with problems....so many that I see...so many that don't see me....

Will there be another?

Gentle, I am sorry to hear that hon. You had your soul-mate and experienced a wonderful life with her. They say you only have one soul-mate, I dont know. You seem like a kind man. Will there be another? Yes hon, there will. You just gotta think positive!!
