    this is me again quest bringing some more, thanks again for the love i really appreciate it. i look forward to reading some of your work.

    -Do I know?-

    Before I sit down and appreciate who you are,
    let me first realize how we got this far--
    from that first moment I cried when I smelled your air,
    your style, your grace, your presence,
    that smile that made me care what you thought of me and
    if I could make you happy being with me exclusively.

    When you looked at me I became a nervous wreck
    my thoughts curved, vision blurred, mummeled words
    but I could always find a way to say I love you.

    You scare me because you are so good
    I don't have a clue but you are worth that much
    please let my feelings die to that I can experience your touch
    and know life while I live this death--
    I'm confused but with you I know I can find help...

    What to do?
