    My heart is in pain ...in serious pain
    but so the f*** what, I have more to gain

    I lost out on love, and all that it meant
    but who the hell cares...it was love well spent

    Oh, there were moments when love, was at it's best
    but some power took over ...at your request

    And this power you hold, is well in control
    like the gods in the heavens, like untarnished gold

    You know that seed, I told you I planted?
    well, you were the seed ...that took me for granted

    But all was not lost ...as you took the wrong road
    so I re-planted my soil ...and guess what I sowed?

    :spinstar: Tranquility :spinstar:
    :spinstar: Sensuality :spinstar:
    :spinstar: Divinity :spinstar:

    Yes, I skillfully planted, all this in one crop
    yeah, I loved and I lost ...but I gave you your props

    *you gave me a lemon ...and I learned to make lemonade*

    Queent....as I feel the sorrow in this, I also feel much hope for tomorrow, for we are never quite sure of what it will bring, but hope...The poem itself, was written with flair. Peace sis.

    I was the one to pave the road, at lease it felt like that. Thanks for stopping by
    And as much as I paved it...I couldn't walk it long.

    To know that the two of you are always close by ...makes me feel very good. Thanks for the "backbone" ...you never fail to give.

    I first tried the soil...to no avail, so, whatever works, is the face of reality. It's important to keep the "whirl" ...turning.
    thanks for the drop-in
