    … I have a girlfriend

    Do you love me though?

    … I care for you, yes


    You care for me?

    I love you…

    So you do love me…?

    I… yes… but I have a girlfriend

    I see…Do you love your girlfriend?

    Very much so!

    Do you tell her that you love her?

    Yes I do…

    Are you in love with your girlfriend?

    What is the difference?

    None, if it means you are in love with me too…

    Was that so hard?

    Loving 2 at the same time, sounds like it can be a sticky situation. There are different ways to love, we may love someone but not as a lover or a mate, but as a friend. I enjoyed the conversational flow of this piece.

    Thank you all for the responses and feed back.

    I say love is love, like life is life... we are alive and can choose to express that as we see fit. The same applies to love.

    It can and usually is a sticky situation to "love" more than one person at a time, but i think its the sticky situations in life that lead us to truth... if we are honest with ourselves of course.

    It is hard to say you love or are in love with more than one person in a world that has a particular view on love. Just as it was hard to say the earth was round when the world had a particular view on the earth.

    Bless!

    nice flow...

    ...as for the REAL LIFE comparison, let's just say that i've seen people who will try to back you in a corner, to get you to say what they want to hear. not wanting to give up that SOMETHING SPECIAL, we appease them by saying we do...when, truly, we don't. JUST MY TAKE ON THE REAL OF IT.

    enjoyed it, though.

    I feel you Baller, and thanx.

    Not all people are manipulative (aware or unaware) all the time... at least I'm not.

    Sometimes we sincerely want to know the answer to a burning question. So we ask a sincere question and wait for a sincere response. I am a firm believer that real recognize real... a person sincerely looking for truth, will find it.

    The piece was not only about her wanting to know, but about him admitting what was true.

    DON'T CHANGE MY UNIVERSE!!!!!

    I'm playing...

    Bless
