    okay y'all I know that we're not supposed to post more than 2 according to the rules, but I just wrote this one and I wanna share it...don't scold me pleeeeeease! :smooch:

    Sitting in my car,
    Thinking of you again,
    Wondering how far this will go,
    Trying to take it all in.

    At first I was so glad,
    That we happened to cross paths,
    But now I don't feel the same,
    Trying to make this something, but I can't.

    I think we should've waited,
    Until you were over your last girl,
    Because you've got some issues,
    And you're bringing them into my world.

    I thought I could accept it,
    And help you to get through it,
    Trying to hold on to see what the future has in store for us,
    But I'm not sure if I can do it.

    I'm not giving up on you,
    I promised you I'd be here,
    But it's hard when I want you so bad,
    And you're living in fear.

    Thinking that you can trust no one,
    Becauase she destroyed your heart,
    And I have to deal with your bitterness,
    I should've known from the start,

    That I was your rebound chick,
    Even though you don't see it that way,
    I'm here for your convenience,
    To console you day after day.

    I'm the one you call,
    When you need to feel secure,
    But it's because you're not completely over her,
    You need comfort and I give that and more.

    You seem to care about me,
    But is it truly genuine?
    Feels like I'm just real convenient,
    So used to being in love, you just needed a friend.

    I care a lot about you,
    And I don't wanna let you go,
    But I don't know where this is going,
    Holding on to see if I'll ever know.

    I just don't think you're ready,
    To have a friendship like ours,
    Because you have to resolve some stuff first,
    Before this thing we have goes sour.

    Please don't take this wrongly,
    I'm not leaving you,
    I just had a reality check,
    To bring me back to the truth.

    Not much is going to change,
    I'll still do the same things,
    Still here when you need me,
    Just here without the strings.

    I think most would not want to be part of a rebound relationship, if they knew that's what it would be at first. I really liked where you took us with this, you want to be first choice, not a substitute. I hear ya poet.

    people just dont understand why you would tie your life down for someone who still in love with the present. he with her for his reason and then he gets what he lacking with her from you. we cant help who we love going through the same situation hang on in there
