    i can't even verbalize what you were to me
    because it was so built on emotion
    the lust in the beginning
    then the joining of our spirits creating another
    then disappointment in you not being more verbal
    then the pain of destroying our seed
    then the emptiness of it all
    that

    lingered

    then the longing for fulfillment
    over and over
    and over
    again
    that you could never successfully
    give to me
    then your manipulation...
    well always your manipulation
    but when i finally close the door and seal it tight
    knowing you're still peering around the big tree
    in my backyard hoping for a cracked window
    i feel the tears and emotion flooding forth
    all at once...

    i let it go and free it all into the sky
    good-bye good-bye good-bye good-bye good-bye

    cooley.

    Miss K-ness

    I feel you. And from my heart to yours, embrace the parts of Cooley that made/make you smile. He still occupies a significant part of you. And it's all right, sis. It's all right.

    Peace

    The reality of a painless existence in heaven is a serious mystery to me because here on earth it seems to be such an intricate part of life’s reality. The thin line between pain and pleasure love and hate can sometimes make you wonder if there is a difference at all. I have been someone’s emotional cooley before and out of respect for their feelings I walked away and let them get on with their life even when I knew the window was cracked.
    Love is not selfish
    Love is selfless
    Anything less is not love

    I am gonna keep writin
    so'ja, even if it's just for us!

    I didn't really feel free after
    getting this out, GYPSY
    but thank you nonetheless.

    Shaz, thank you for that info
    and for walking away because
    maybe that shows that your
    love was real in your own way
    because you do have your own
    way about most things.
