    as i sit
    in a daze
    lost loves
    come to mind
    some were perfect
    some misbehaved
    but all i loved at one point in time

    the things is
    i sometimes wonder
    if they were all in a pact
    it seemed as if
    everytime i fell for their love
    they returned it with abandonment

    maybe they were just afraid
    to commit to somebody like me
    just because i'm ready for love
    doesn't mean we were meant to be

    i've always loved that
    "lets just be friends" line
    knowing good and well
    that i'd never hear their
    beautiful voice again
    for a long time

    it seems like they all had
    the same things to say
    "i love you"
    "i need you"
    "and your my only baby"

    now what makes me mad
    is not them
    but myself
    it's like a habit
    something that i want to end
    but just can't help

    constantly
    each and every time
    i hear those words i fall
    in love over and over again
    and you know what?
    abandonment
    never
    withdrawals...
