I am wanting to start doing creative writing at uni, but to do that I need a portfolio, and finally today I managed to get a poem out on paper... It is about my ectopic - I only seem to be able to write about sad things.... it's very therapeutic



Potential Reality


An impact on my life
No one else can understand
A brief visit
That will last a lifetime

I wish I could explain
How much it hurts to think about it every day
To know that I held another life within
But that it couldn't go on
A potential for so much joy
A reality of sorrow

Life decided to take a different path
Than the one I'd have chosen for myself
I wanted the joy and excitement
To enter a happy unknown
Instead I got grief and mourning
A lonely fate

An invisible prison
I can't get out of, no one else can get into
Unable to explain what I feel
Not knowing where to start
Needing to express what's in my heart
Unable to

Tears that I can't stop
Or explain the reason for
Other than to say I miss you

The reality is,
I'm crying for a life that could have been
But that was never going to exist

Emma that really is beautiful. You could add this to the "self expressions" sticky if you like (in case you didn't think of it). I think creative writing is an excellent way to express things that often you cannot express any other way.
