    How can I love u?
    When I met u
    I had no plans 4 u
    Because u
    Belonged 2 someone else
    Sometimes I cry 2 myself
    Because I’ve allowed myself
    2 become second 2 another self
    When I am worth no less than # 1
    I knew of your # 1
    And thought I would leave u as 1
    Therefore leaving me and u as none
    Instead our first encounter was where we first begun
    The more I saw u
    The more I had to know about u
    The more comfortable I became around u
    Your presence was the nourishment that fed my love 4 u
    I had no choice but 2 continue
    Your first quest was sex
    Instead we had everything less the sex
    Which left me perplexed
    Because anything less than sex
    I thought, would leave us with less and less
    Instead it left us with the best
    Or maybe not the best
    Maybe I just got myself into one huge mess
    ‘Cause I now feel for u as if u could B my next
    Knowing I am not even really entitled 2 what’s left.

    feelin' this piece...

    too often, we find ourselves in this perdicament...longing for something that belongs to another coz we allowed temptation to lay its hands upon us...causing confusion...mixed emotions...arousing feelings that shouldn't be. just you and me...not we. SEE.

    I know this so well

    so many not know we all get into this in some point
    yet some can fine their way back home and some just
    fall deeper...............we as humans let our hearts go
    and we know there is another lover .....I feel u sweetie.
