    i promised myself a million things
    i kept most of those promises
    made them while wearing white gloves and domesticated suits
    and now, here, live and in depth
    i write this rhyme wondering how it is i couldn't
    do all the things i promised i would
    like not fall in love
    and not return his calls
    and not feel his strong arms
    take away my overwhelming lonliness and pain
    i promised i wouldn't confuse sex and love
    and then i did
    so when i found another
    it should have been easy to do all those things with him
    and mean them and want them like he did
    when this other one wants nothing
    and i wanted to make those promises to anyone
    but especially to him,
    I wanted to do the things i could
    and my heart wouldn't
    allow me to do
    i want to be the only one in your life
    and to let you be my only man
    my mind wants the same things you do
    raising fences
    and lives without pretension
    have kids and a wedding
    man, that would be something
    but, my heart won't let him loose
    it won't detangle the noose
    i have wrapped tightly around my heart
    and hung out to dry.
    so, maybe in time,
    i will begin to unwind and remember
    he never loved me.

    thanks y'all, again. Nothing like knowing others feel the same or have felt this way, less lonely. Crazy because this guy really loves me for myself, he has known me forever, before I was ever the hard *** i think i am.

    gempis, when you gonna drop one on us?

    there are lives I've lived tucked neatly within my heart
    once hidden
    ....that were made transparent through the words of this piece
    reading this I felt as though I was looking into an old mirror...

    Truly felt...girl!
