    I try to explore your soul
    but i keep bumping into brick walls
    what happened so long ago is beyond my control
    will you ever be able to let go of it all?
    your past only subsides in moments of heat
    but the air cools and the sweat dries
    I realize I am still having to compete
    the pain of the past shows in your eyes
    when will you realize I'm Not Her

    you continously make me pay her dues
    questioning me, distrusting me, misusing me
    because of the things she put you through
    but my brother sooner or later you got let it be
    for your anger is wearing me down
    It is vivid and constant as the drummer beat
    sending a sister round and round
    making the task of loving you a hercule's feat
    when will you realize I'm Not Her

    I know she hurt you down to the core
    had you swearing off the whole fair sex
    Vowing to never suffer any more
    but I'm different in every respect
    I just want to love you throughly
    Earn the good name back for the queens
    For we ain't all going to treat you so roughly
    I ain't going to abuse you by any means
    when will you realize I'm Not Her

    Take a good look
    I AM NOT HER!!!

    Sound like it was to close to her "Good-bye and your Hello"
    and in some cases...
    Every good-bye don't always mean "gone"
    Until he has time to completely heal, every YOU...will be her!
    Great piece poet, enjoyed the read.

    Sometimes it takes more than a notion to get over what one thinks of as yesterday's news. I love your word choice...you describe that darned if I do or don't feeling to a "T".
