    Confused about what I am doing
    to myself, my spirit, my soul. . .
    You've already ripped out my heart
    and tore it in two.
    So, after all we've been through
    why do I still run to you?
    Especially now when
    someone else is attempting
    to claim the spot in my heart
    I thought was reserved for you
    But he is less complicated then you
    with less he is going through
    and more of him to offer me.
    Yet, something drags me back to you
    like the cat who constantly
    brings its owner dead mice
    not appreciated, but expected nevertheless.

    hahahaha, laughing at the metaphor, the loyal cat bringing the dead mouse...tell you what...make that brotha bounce....focus on someone who is willing to give to you, because that other cat (excuse the play on words) is just another example of someone that we continually come to because they're a challenge...screw the challenge...enjoy your life.

    Deep I must say

    Randee, Love despite it being simple we sometime run it through the course of hardship and lessons take time to learn, face it you may have unresolved issues to clear up. Please whatever you do take some real serious time to rediscover yourself. When that comes complete then you will know the real you and then changes will take place to avoid further damage, for that is the most important key for survival.

    So Right

    Both of you are right. It's just so hard lately to tell who is real and not. I seem to keep getting this so wrong. But redlady, you are right, he needs to bounce and Zenmaster, you are too, maybe I need time alone to heal.

    Not that I claim to know everything in the least, but I've been here before.....going back to someone who disrespected me. I think it helps to remember how much you love yourself and what you're worth. Also that if you give that one up, there will be another - it's not like you won't ever have another love. Sometimes you just get sick of taking the crap. My thoughts are with you, Randee, but I know how strong you are, so ultimately I'm not worried, sister.

    Girl you always do this to me...

    Your making me have flashbacks of a time when I was sooooo
    head over heals...wrapped up...unable to see straight...
    crazy about someone...

    Man...this was some sobering reality about relationships...
    and how caught up we can become in the "unhealthy" ones
    so difficult to break the ties...sometimes it nearly breaks you
    escaping with only your life...because it eats away at everything
    pure that was once within you...

    Sorry for the novel...but this one just hit me...
    this was real girl!
