    I heard them saying
    Your character was…question-able
    They said THAT was you
    I’m praying it’s not true
    All the things…they say you…do
    Coz, I’m wanting to get…with…you
    And though the story goes on…and on
    You know the song
    ‘bout…he said…she said…so full of…lies
    I wonder why…I listen to…them
    Then, again
    There is truth in the wildest myth…of you
    And yet
    I don’t wanna believe…it’s not true

    I still wanna be with you
    {{{during the moonrise}}}
    When the sun…set
    And the stars
    Come
    Out
    And
    You make my…day
    With
    Your
    Smile

    I heard them
    Saying
    I am a…fool…for letting you
    Abuse and miss-use me
    But I don’t…listen
    No’more.

    "If they bring a bone they will carry one!" Thats what the southern folks say...and it still holds true to day...believe only half of what yousee and some and none of what you hear!

    "ALL THOSE RUMORS...surrounding me everyday...i need someTIME...SOMEtime to get away from...from all those rumors...can't take it no more...".:)

    THANKS for feeling me.

    however, it is nice to stay informed...as long as you can filter out what is REAL from the rest of the BS that comes your way...and see the DEPTHS of the ocean in front of you.

    THANK YOU.

    ives.

    when you know what you know
    it's not hard to ignore everyone else and listen to your heart

    I always enjoy your flow
    Nice read
    Natasha :)
