    I've been going through
    a lot

    late ly


    I've been --
    settling for less
    getting the worst
    going without
    and sparing your feelings

    I've been going through
    a lot

    most recent ly

    and I've been --
    drinking in excess
    compounding the issues
    building a mountain
    of bad habits

    smokin'
    not eating
    loving you
    without
    first thinking

    oh my love

    I've been--
    influenced by
    dependent foolishness
    perpetuating
    sadness
    accepting the
    unacceptable

    forgiving
    forgetting
    and loving you all
    over again

    hey you ...

    I wonder if you're
    going through this too?

    Oh hecky yeah!

    I am feeling this one, so completely. Know that this too shall pass.
    Keep on flowing and keep on growing. Cause there is healing in your words... remember when you are feeling blue, there is someone somewhere feeling bluer than you!
    BLESSING ON YA HOUSE!

    that line of three words got me...
    i know i said this before
    but this too is classic...
    it draws from the classic ism
    of poetry our harlem renaissance
    forefathers/mothers wrote!
    i love this. :spinstar:

    this is fantastic!!! A true poet NEVER misses a beat...and your verse is perfectly syncopated with time.

    I'm glad you could feel this piece and it's vibe........you are so true when you say there is healing in words that are written, but I will say in many cases I write not because I feel this way myself - but just to express feelings in general --

    thanks for reading and responding.

    Much :heart:

    I am in awe to know that you
    had made such a connection
    to reading this piece and am
    ecstatic to know that you
    could draw the classicism
    description between the
    one liner that you pointed out
    and the harlem renaissance
    poets........

    that is sooooooo sweet ma!!

    thanks for the luv!!
