    As the clouds shadow the nighttime moon,
    I sit in amazement and ask myself silently
    if I am happy

    Of the many times I’ve asked of my own
    happiness, the replies never falter or deviate;
    resoundingly, I always answer in the affirmative

    Life for me, in all its splendor, is altruistic and whole
    My health is good, my mind is in tact, and my
    seeds are blossoming into adulthood

    What more could I possibly ask for?

    Although I am thankful for all that I am and all
    that I aspire to become, I have nothing because

    I have everything but the girl…

    There was a time not too distant past that I
    accepted being alone; however I was never
    lonely-compensation works wonders when
    you’re trying to tell your heart it’s happy

    But moments are more frequent now than
    they were then; companionship means more
    now-it feels more deeply and cuts to the bone
    because it’s not present within my reach

    Focus was on self-actualization and not on
    concentrating on finding a reason as to why
    one part of my heart was as cold as ice; a
    stark contrast of a once defined, ignited and
    passionate warmth I generated so freely

    Now that bad times have seemingly subsided,
    I again realize that I have made monumental
    strides in life and in love

    I have attempted and succeeded at life’s most
    basic of needs but still I lament because

    I have everything but the girl…

    You hear me speak in volumes and waves so
    emotionally charged and so true; but do not
    cry for me-this is a personal right of passage

    My heart has stopped on occasion to inquire
    if its beating is in vain; to which I respond
    by holding it a little closer on the inside

    I’ve assured my heart that love is all around
    us in heavy abundance and that better times
    for love are yet to come

    With every single beat of my heart, I am
    convinced that it is closer than I actually
    imagine to loving again

    My desire to love deeply, spiritually, and
    physically drives my passion and my destiny
    of having

    everything and the girl once more…

    and it shall come to pass

    the day that the woman that God is preparing for you
    as your mate, your friend, your lover will arrive

    BUT~

    only in God's time.

    Q

    I feel you on this one man... Loneliness is a fear of mine. Happiness is a desire of mine, true love is a fantasy... so I live on the edge of reality.

    what you have means nothing if you have no one to share it with.

    All Love
