    I'm not right.

    I spend all my time out in the streets.

    Chasing.

    Erasing the memories of you and I.

    You'll probably think I've meet someone.

    In the group, and circle I run.

    Well I have to be honest dear.

    I did.

    But I haven't moved or placed my groove on her at all.

    I know she would be down with that.

    She didn't hesitate to let me know.

    That turned me on.

    I must admit.

    Let me tell what I felt.

    She is very bright,

    physically attractive,

    kindhearted,

    and sensitive too.

    All the things that are attractive, and made me love you boo.

    I know you had all this and more.

    That's why I married you.

    But she is showing.

    With you I'm not knowing.

    So what am I to do.

    Should I stay or should I go.

    I can't see straight no Mo.

    Please help me dear.

    While I'm standing here.

    Cause she is waiting for my call.

    It is real how she makes me feel.

    But I want you in my life.

    This a plea of a man to thee.

    To tell me how you feel.

    Cause you haven't shared.

    You haven't cared.

    What I do,

    What I say.

    What I feel.

    For years.

    I'm not sure and I'm scared. That I be looking for something that has disappeared. In me. In life. From view. I can't quit. Or even think. That love don't exist.

    It must be true.

    I felt it boo.

    From another.

    It scares me though.

    Cause I want you to know

    to be the man

    in your life

    and you the woman for me.

    Thanks FAM..

    Coming true is all I know. It isn't working but I can't abandon what I know holds my center. I flow in and out of things. Like this if it comes my way. I look at it. I do what I can. And pray for a better day. Tomorrow is new. And just by chance a snap in the hold on my mind. Will release and I grow like I did before. Before she cut the vine. Right now I have no answers I'm running on borrowed time.

    " Oh my, isn't love so confusing. Somewhere in you, you know what is right. No one, can tell you... but maybe the Lord.
    Do not go blindly into life... pray. " So true Cindy

    " let her know da heart " Still doing that $$RICH$$ but the slings and arrows are sharp.

    " tell her let her know whats on your mind " Your so right Blkangel.. but she don't hear me thou. I'm dammed if I stay. I'm dammed if I go. I'm dammed to be without my true love either way.

    I have enough of love to give my next heart will feel the truth. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet I know. I have more trouble with this. What is holding me. Itcan't the present. Is it the past. Is hope is it false. I scream be gone Satan.. get out of my life. Leave this place and stop tormenting love.

    Hodee,
    I know what you're talking about...but you said: I'm dammed to be without my true love either way. That's not true. If she is your true love, you will never be without her (if you make the right decision). Don't leave a love that you want for anything or anybody.

    Go Head then!......... This was tight in flow, form, feeling, and all around the board......Baaaaaaaaby!

    I admire the way you, spaced this out. giving enough time, if just a mili-second, for your feelings to push the next phrase............Simply Faboulus!........One Love

    Hodee..........I'm speechless
    love is so complicated...
    I often think I'll never understand it....I write about it
    but I don't really think I know it but ....

    I hope things are made clear, for you
    I hope it turns out to be everything you want it to be...
