I cried when I found your message,
Hidden away.
You said it was cowardice
Delivering it like that,
In a place Id find it when I was all alone.

It was. It hurt. You have wounded me to my very soul.
I dont know if Ill ever recover, or if I even want to try.

Youd promised to be my partner.
Bride forever.
You said youd always love me.
Now my hope is torn asunder.
Will you choose to be there when I get back home?

I dont know. Im scared. Faith is bleeding from my soul.
Puddling on this fetid ground, my life slowly spilling.

Without you there can be no us,
We wont exist.
You said wed merged together.
That apart wed shrivel and die.
Death, a fate Id welcome. I wont go on alone.

Theres nothing. Its gone. An empty shell replaced my soul.
Eviscerated. Shattered.

And I dont know what to do.
Oh God, I dont know what to do.

An honest heart-cry. What pain birthed this message? Please, share how we can pray for you.

God bless - and may He bring you peace and healing.

This captures the essence of a broken marriage, I know it's often compared to a death. You've encapsulated that heart wrenching feeling in just a few short words. Good job.

This is about a Heart that has been shattered, not a 'soul'; but who am I to quibble about words at a time like this - when one of our fellow FW's is in deep dispair! This doesn't sound like fiction to me - it sounds real; and my heart and soul reaches out to God to bring you comfort, healing and peace. God Does answer Knee-Mail.

Reading this breaks my heart. I pray it isn't true, and I'm praying in case it is. We miss you here.
