    Am I guilty
    Of expecting so much from you that I make you miserable
    Am I guilty
    Of wanting to hold you accountable with out any accountability?
    Am I guilty
    Of seeing you as someone who should and will be there exactly when I want and need
    Am I guilty
    Of feeling that my heart is the most vulnerable in this situation
    Am I guilty
    Of selfishly wanting you to myself?
    To all counts I plead guilty
    With the poor exscuse that love is my motive
    For true love is not selfish and true love is fair.
    But the love I have is true indeed.

    Nice piece! 'Had me thinking of Isaac Hayes' "I Stand Accused."



    Hmmm. Well, that's food for thought!

    I think sometimes we do go overboard when our feelings are bubbling over like that. I appreciate the way you explain the reason behind those actions, emotions can be difficult to control. Great reading you again.
