    you left me...

    crying a river
    of fears
    ...an ocean of so many tears

    {baby, i made a mistake
    can i have a second chance?}

    can you drain my river
    ...fill my ocean with something
    other than tears?

    can you chase the fears away

    can you make me a better day
    ...than yesterday

    can you?

    you left me
    ...REMEMBER.:(

    sometimes...

    we forget that rejection hurts. we think that we can stroll in and out of people lives whenever the whim hits...without consequence. THEN, we people refuse to accept that behavior, it's them who're being unreasonable.

    hmmm.

    THANKS FOR READING ME.

    true...

    truth, baller...

    yet, people will do what they
    want to do for the sake of "me-ism"
    ...all about me, nobody but me...
    the cycle...continues

    time heals wounds as we are then
    smarter and wiser (hopeful) to guard
    ourselves against such invasions...

    :)

    inner peace~

    MsD...

    balance requires that we NOT let the past dictate how we respond in the future--baggage. if we GUARD ourselves too well, we don't let true love in.:( every NEW love is another opportunity for happiness...we can only find it if we allow it in.

    "d."...the chances we take...the fortunate ones don't realize just how fortunate they are--some of them.

    coco...i'm feeling you...understanding the pain.

    THANKS FOR THE LOVE.

    rejection is a tunnel with the light of healing in the end.

    BUT anytime we solely rely on humans for anything, we accept the open invitation of rejection.

    nice.
