    i don't know

    the difference between giving up and cutting our losses
    because a lot has been compromised
    a multitude sacrificed

    i watched us grow up
    and mature
    so
    how
    do
    you
    let
    that
    go?

    i-guess-sometimes-the-world-we-live-in-is
    a magnet
    and when that magnet snaps
    2 things that were once attracted to one another
    repel--

    they seperate.

    i guess what i am tryna say is
    sometimes people grow together to grow apart
    sometimes life does impossible **** like

    hand you lemonade and ask you to make lemons

    and the best you can do is try
    try
    try

    and understand
    understand
    understand

    y?

    like the moon
    pulls the waves...
    i'm dealing with this water
    drowning in the oxygen-rich liberation
    that is a love washed to shore

    i need to be submerged.

    but don't throw me back.

    straddling the fence of life
    with tin buckets
    in those tin buckets
    water...

    no
    not baggage
    just my conscience weighed in
    each hand
    stressing my weak frame
    because

    she don't think she can--

    and i know for a fact the we can't--

    as a matter of fact...we have to
    exactly
    as the stars have ordained
    and i can't live life from...

    dealing with this water.

    Hey manifested .
    feeling where you coming from
    2 people walking down the same road forever
    one day each one see things
    a little different on the path even
    those they travel the same road.
    Peace

    You have posed quite a bit for the mind to ponder on....I love how you write...symbols and imagery...yet tied with so much which your heart and mind must deal with.
