    DOES ANYBODY KNOW
    ANYBODY AT ALL

    Shared things
    That was not reality at all

    IS LEAVING, A SHIELD?

    Before hurt, hurt first
    If stayed things would be worse

    THE MORE LEFT
    THE LESS TO LOOSE.

    Run away, cover up
    The lacking heart does not hold.

    The time parted
    Would have passed anyway
    Not dependent on circumstance
    Or the gifts that were gave

    In the early times
    Those were shared

    There was trust
    Thought so
    In the way behaved
    In the minutes
    Every moment

    Does anybody get to know anybody ever?
    Knowing anybody any more

    So it is a shield
    That lives within
    Revealed after leaving

    Like normal always do

    Isn’t it the more left?
    The more lost

    Thank You
    Sister queentswana

    Do we really know, the people in our lives.
    Change is inevitable, expected

    Change should be welcomed, it is growth
    Hopefully they change and grow in such a manner they
    Don’t exclude those who care about them

    Ranging from a relationship
    Break-ups, to a dissolved marriage

    One tries to understand another, and listen and learn
    Support and compromise, to giving all the
    Thoughtfulness, and care possible.

    But there are sometimes shields and walls they have
    About them and this complicates the relations.

    Sometimes a better understanding comes after they are gone.

    interesting.

    i'm writing this chapter in an upcoming novel, that says, "get to know me."...about starting relationships...instructing potential mates to know more about the other person than a name and a place of employment. in the end, a better question is, "are we allowed to know anyone, any more?" people have become so guarded that we can be with someone for years before we let our walls down long enough for our mates to learn even the smallest things about us...because of the possibility of getting hurt. DON'T THEY KNOW THAT THE PAIN WILL COME REGARDLESS...IF THE RELATIONSHIP ENDS. BY BEING OPEN, at least we won't have to say, MAYBE I SHOULD'A...

    do yo' thang, HODEE.
