    APOLOGIZE

    I HAVE HAD MORE GLASSES OF WINE THEN I CARE TO COUNT, JUST WAITING ON YOU TO CALL
    I’M BEGINNIG TO WONDER IF I SHOULD APOLOGIZE FOR WANTING YOU AT ALL
    MY MIND IS FULL TO CAPAPCITY WITH THOUGHTS OF YOUR KISS
    I RUN THROUGH ALL THE REASONS I DIG YOU SO, CHECKING THEM OFF LIKE A LIST.
    THEN THOUGHTS OF DECIET BREAKS THROUGH MY THOUGHTS AND I CAN’T HELP BUT THINKING
    ONCE AGAIN I’VE LET MY GUARDS DOWN, AND ONCE AGAIN I’VE LOST.
    WHAT? I AM NOT EXACTLY SURE, BUT WHATEVER IT IS THAT I’VE BEEN POISENED WITH
    IT SURE FELT LIKE YOU WERE THE CURE
    SO SHOULD I APOLOGIZE TO YOU, BECAUSE YOU BROUGHT A SMILE TO MY FACE
    OR MAYBE I SHOULD BE REGRETFUL WHEN I THINK OF HOW WE SHOPED FOR DANTIES AND LACE.
    HOW DO I TAKE BACK THE WAY THAT I FEEL INSIDE
    I’M PERPLEXED AND CONFUSED, IS EMOTIONS A THING I WAS SUPPOSED TO HIDE
    THE RIDES AND THE TALKS, DID I SOMEHOW MISUNDERSTAND
    THAT ALTHOUGH YOU WERE NOT READY
    THAT YOU WERE HOWEVER, AN EMOTIONALLY AVAILABLE MAN
    SHOULD I NOW HIDE BEHIND YOUR FEARS
    OR DO I TURN THE MUSIC UP WAY TOO LOUD
    TO DROWN THE SOUND OF MY OWN TEARS
    SHOULD I BE REGRETFUL THAT I FELT YOU LIKE THAT
    SHOULD I NOW WISH FOR A WAY TO JUST TAKE IT ALL BACK
    SHOULD I NOW LEARN YET ANOTHER LESSON, THAT NOTHING IS AS IT APPEARS
    AND THAT WORDS OF HOPE AND PASSION SPOKE IN THE DARKNESS
    WITH THE SUNLIGHT DISAPEARS
    SHOULD I APLOGIZE FOR ALL OF THE ESCTASY
    FOR THE RAYS OF SUNLIGHT THAT RADIATED FROM YOU TO ME
    AND ALL OF THE WANTING, NEEDING, CRAVING, DESIRIING
    FOR ALL OF THE FEELING
    SHOULD I NOW SAY THAT I AM SORRY
    FOR THE WORRYING FOR THE FREINDSHIP THAT I THOUGH WE WERE DEVELOPING
    WELL IF THAT IS THE CASE
    IF MY FEELINGS FOR YOU HAVE SOMEHOW NOW CAUSE YOU A DISTATE
    I’LL GIVE IT MY BEST TRY
    ALTHOUGH IT MAY JUST SOUND LIKE LIE
    HERE IT GOES:
    FOR ALL THE FEELINGS THAT I FEEL FOR YOU INSIDE
    I APOLOGIZE

    This is Very Sincere.

    Thanks You Sharing

    When you feel the fears and uncertainty.
    That is the time to tell him so.
    If he cares about being there
    Protecting your heart
    The rain will not drop on you as much
    A few drops here and there _ are good for growth
    To us like they are to plants
    He will do a lot to take care
    Of You and Him.

    ByyourSelf
    Is how you were born
    ByyourSelf
    Is how your going

    While Here!
    On this Earth
    Love Hard, Play Hard and Enjoy Life.

    Thanks for the love and the understanding,as a poet so filled with so much emotion we tend to love very hard. Loving those who haven't yet found the ability to love. I'm glad I have a family of people just like me.
    Love on fam! Love On!:hearts2:

    With a love and care so deep, we hope that we have found someone whose love is also beyond measure. It hurts when we find ourselves wanting for some semblance of what we feel. Expressed on point poetess.

    Oooh-wee! Been THERE. Done THAT!

    This whole piece made me think of the song "Why Does It Hurt So Bad" from the Waiting To Exhale soundtrack. Many years ago, I used to just drive around in my car for hours listening to that song after I broke up with my ex.
