    Has anybody seen my Self?
    I know I had her the other day.
    How could she have slipped
    away just like that?
    Maybe she ran away...
    maybe I drove her away.
    Oh, hell I don't know.
    All I do know is that
    I miss her and want her
    back immediately.

    She is my best friend.
    We do everything
    together...
    live, love, like, dislike, laugh
    She's the bomb (if I do say
    so, my Self).

    She's everything that I'm not...
    emotional, confident,
    trusting, understanding
    ****... she's happy.

    I can almost always tell
    when she's gone because
    i become this insecure, paranoid,
    meloncholy, judgemental
    person
    I don't recognize right off
    or like at all.
    She's the one people are drawn to.
    I'm the one
    they have to tolerate
    every now and then.

    ****, I wish I knew when
    or where I lost her
    so I could go back and scoop her up.
    I'd probably smack the hell out of her
    for leaving me alone.
    My Self knows how afraid I get
    when she's not around to
    protect us... (from life).

    I know I have to play back
    our life and see if I can tell
    exactly where it happened,
    where we got seperated,
    where our connection was lost.

    My biggest fear is that she's
    decided to be eternally elusive
    where ever she may be
    and that I'll never be that person
    who loved life and my Self.

    If you see her, tell her
    I'm looking for her and that I
    know we can work it out.
    I'm nothing without her...

    Thank you, thank you, thank you...

    for all of the wonderful comments.

    Shadee.... I know we all feel like that sometimes. I'm glad you felt me.

    KLA... This is one of things I want to contribute to our project. I think it would help somebody somewhere.

    $$RICH$$... Your stamp of approval certainly makes me feel good about putting my **** out there. Thank you man!

    DNOMMO... You the man... and you made me smile. That was funny...

    hey sis

    I feel self
    I've heard self
    speaking all by
    herself to yourself
    whispering poeticly
    enchanting myself.
    **** Sis! you've touched me.
