Acerbic words sting,
assail the air;
hurled like a dagger with a jab to the heart.
Fatal blows swift and sure catch me by surprise…
I cannot breathe.
Your barbed tongue maims,
slices through the tender threads of trust and
when the curtain falls, you feel nothing.
I was fodder for your senses, consumed then forgotten
No investment. No expense.
Being without me is a reprieve, a temporary Fast — no snacks, no sugar.
Yet you to me were love without restraint
sustenance for the soul
and the bonds that did bind me were not of chains–
but a river of ribbons flowing throughout my existence.
After a taste of the Infinite, being without you is death by starvation.
Now Both of us are confined to our corners
of opposite sides
where never the two shall meet.
Were you here
I would crush your fingers with rocks–
than you have crushed my heart.
Why, you have no fingers left!
But neither have I heart.

…with a broken wing
the Human Spirit
poems by Ronaye Hudyma
Whether contemporary, classic, or peppered with Elizabethan eloquence, this profound ensemble of 130 poems is not stationary. They move as if conducted with a maestro’s baton –fluid between the euphoria of life and love, the drama, the anguish of death and loss, with every nuance of human emotion spilling upon the pages.
They are poignant words written with the transparency of youth, gathering maturity and experience, evolving to wisdom, into the spiritual realm.
This is not just poetry. There are a million stories in each poem. Once for each of us. From the teenager discovering their individuality, the young adult challenged by relationships and the world around them, to the Elder denizens of Earth, who cherish their memories as veterans of life, this is a book to be read and reread, a keepsake to console, embrace and affirm your recognition of the truth within yourself that is already there.
NEVER GONNA STOP
When you said goodbye, I felt a part of me had died and gone
But the pain lives on and on.
It’ll never end, although I said “never again.”
I swore I wouldn’t love you anymore.
You’re love and mine is still a part of me that time won’t heal
Nothing can change the way I feel.
And ‘though I’ve tried a million ways, it doesn’t matter what I say or do
I can’t get over you.
Never gonna stop my heart from breaking
Never gonna stop my arms from aching.
Every night I still remember every day we spent together.
Never gonna stop my eyes from crying
Never gonna stop, there’s no use trying
Love can only hurt you. I’m the fool who knows
Cause someone else is holding you and I can’t let you go
I feel no pain. Ain’t losing sleep.
I sure fell for you but I landed on my feet.
My heart was chained. I cut it loose.
I got burned so bad, but, Baby, now I’m fireproof.
I got love and I’m doing fine.
Got good love, not your crazy kind.
Your old Flame put out the fire, Boy.
Put you out of my mind.
I got love. Adios, we’re through.
You don’t love anyone but you.
I ain’t gonna carry a torch no more
Like you want me to.
He treats me right. Treats me good.
He can do it, Baby—love me like you never could.
So say “bye-bye’. Quit coming around.
You keep turning up and I keep on turning you down.
I got what I wanted, so this is amen.
If you still haven’t got it. Let me tell you again.
I should not have come.
A kiss was all I wanted.
Couldn’t you see it in my eyes?
For my lips were outstretched palms
that humbled me to beggar;
But I left with my empty hands still open,
And in the silent night
my heart listened for the knock on my door
that never came.
GET OUT OF MY HEART!
I get the feeling this is never going to end;
Just when I think you’re gone, you’re right back here again.
Damn these memories you won’t let me forget.
What good is in goodbye if it’s not over yet?
I needed someone’s arms to help me break the fall.
I held a lover who I never loved at all.
But when he touched me all I thought about was you.
Nobody else can make me feel like you still do.
You’re out of my life forever but that doesn’t make it better.
Every day is one more without you.
You don’t know how I miss you…but I’m still with you–
Every night, every dream is about you.
Go on! Get out of my heart! Leave it alone!
How can I ever be free if you don’t ever go?
Go on! Get out of my heart! Why do you stay?
You drive me out of my mind. Go on! Get away!
Get out of my heart!
