    After the Fact

    Sitting here thinking.... dam, I had no idea

    He’s gone and I didn’t know then, but hell I sure know now

    I was in love! To caught up at the time wanting more...

    All over my head I missed it. OH but once I had my “me” time

    You know the time when the phone don’t ring like it use to

    No more movies

    Now, at home dinners

    No more late night park visits

    None of that hand holding stuff

    No more lips on my neck

    Fingers in my *****

    Tongue on my ****

    No more strong hands cupping my breast

    None of that whispering in my ear nasty words

    No more falling asleep in his arms

    No more intimate talks

    Been a long time since he licked my lips and kissed me deeply

    Dam I miss not knowing I was in love….

    Signed: ME​

    The reality is that we take so much for granted. Thanks, for giving something back!

    what a shame

    You miss all the good things after the fact now if we just took a little time to see what we have, there would be no "after the fact"
