    Fool me once, shame on you
    Fool me twice, shame on me
    If you love me, you should
    be able to tell everybody
    It shouldn't be on a hush
    It's something to be proud of,
    unless, by chance,
    it isn't really love.
    It happened once before
    he made me feel like a queen
    and then, all of a sudden
    he started making a scene.
    He said I was up his butt
    and he needed his precious space,
    the look that once was amorous
    was now disinterest taking its place.
    There is this kind of man,
    who just can't seem to commit
    and the minute you think he's yours,
    he's ready to pack up and quit.
    Sort of moody, maybe.
    Sorta a playa I suppose.
    What is ticking in that mind,
    no one really knows.
    But I do know this.
    If you love someone,
    there's no shame in the game,
    don't lie, shout it to the sun.
    Unless, once again,
    Fool me once, shame on you,
    Fool me twice, shame on me.

    Fool me ONCE...shame on you, :madd:
    Fool me TWICE...shame on me :court:
    I have lived by this saying for years...but there is also another one that I never lose sight of...
    "If you love something...let it go,
    if it comes back, it's yours...
    if it dosen't...it never was"
    I really use to like saying that...didn't like the feeling...but the meaning was so powerful.
    To not show and shower you with love...is certainly their GREAT loss.
    luv in sisters...queentswana

    watzinaname,

    you poetically dealt with this one in an excellent manner.

    Unfortunately some people do need a head shrink for a mate, some need mothers or fathers, many have all kinds of baggage and you wouldn't think they were mental cases just by looking at them and talking to them a few times. It's deep.....

    sometimes i think they really want to love, be loved and be in love but you have to case it all out, is it really worth all of that.....maybe a person will be able to find someone half way normal ( if they are normal themselves)

    Don't know whether to :laugh: or :bawling: sometimes

    And then there are those just tryna be slick then you hafta :court:
    them if they catch you in their bag of nothingness.....

    Peace and Blessings

    Yes, Rich, who is fooling who, but nobody should be fooled by love, thank you for supporting as you always do.
    Queentswana, that saying is definitely one to live by, I appreciate your response.
    Thanks deepy for responding so. No I certainly don't want to be fooled even once.
    Rasheed, I enjoyed reading your response. I guess one could agree that with all that we deal with in life, the insane probably out number the sane, lol. yes, hard to know what to do with the state of things, thanks.
