    Intent to hurt you like you've hurt me
    when did you become the poison on the fruit of my trees
    leaving me with nothing, not a shred of my pride
    my innocense hanging on trying to guide
    my heart through the mess and all of this stress
    as I begged for you to come and then stay
    all the while all you gots to say
    is nay, you've got a life, and three little ones
    who need you now, not to mention your grown *** son
    and two babies mama's
    bringing you such convoluted drama
    my place was where, until late, your head could rest
    thoughts breaking long enough to lay asleep at my breast
    but, those were the nights i lay with eyes wide open
    wondering if other woman are like me, only coping
    with the situation I got myself tangled around
    when my times get hard, you're never to be found
    wants it to be drama and stress free
    so now ***** hear this from me
    I want the same things as you out of life -
    to rid myself of drama and strife,
    this started out as your advice
    never did you think you would not suffice
    but i know i have these needs and wants
    and i say this not with the intention to taunt
    but to let you know
    i have to let you go
    i want to say that we can be friends
    that all this love and pain doesn't lead to a single dead end
    but i won't know for some time to come
    from your heart right now I have to run
    i know that you love me
    this much is easy to see
    but what i want and is not what you can give
    there is just too much pain to relive
    to rekindle a romance that never started
    to take a boat we've already chartered
    through rough and rocky tumultuous seas
    let me not pretend, i don't have the expertise
    all i know is what my heart longs for
    will never be this, you and me.

    $$RICH$$, SwtT, shUt-Yo-M0uf and Gempis - thanks for the words, it is a deep piece, which I actually shared with the person i can't get off my mind after all the bs he has put me through i still love him. Hit him in the head with this one.

    Triniti424, Bluewater and mzblkangel - yeah, i wish my heart, mind and mouth could just have the same conversation, my actrions are saying one thing, my mouth another and I am keeping what I really want to sya bottled up in my brain.
