    (Ladies, please tell me I'm not the only one that's been through this)

    [size=large]I don't want you...
    ...to simply agree with, and relate to, me
    -with every intention
    of relating with me-
    when I express, to you,
    that I'm simply not ready
    [for a relationship].
    I don't want you...
    ...to tell me what it is,
    you assume, I'd like to hear
    so that I might (suddenly) see you
    in a different light
    and -mystically- become ready
    (for a relationship).
    I don't want you...
    ...to comfort me,
    based on the grounds of pursuit;
    but, because you genuinely
    feel the need to;
    subduing, any, feelings of fondness
    until it's evident that they are reciprocal
    and it's "just time"
    (for a relationship).
    I need you...
    ...not, to rush
    the maturation process
    that is our frienship
    (so that it may become intimate)
    but, to let fate's photosynthesis
    take it's course; from the soil
    that is our current foundation,
    to the garden
    that may be our future's potential.
    I don't want you...
    ...to want me intimately,
    but platonically.
    I need you...
    ...to need my friendship,
    unconditionally;
    and understand that, though
    we all wish to trip
    over the boundaries
    we place over our hearts
    -from time to time-
    so that we may fall in love;
    it's, more than, okay to wait
    (for a relationship).[/size]

    I think we have all been there!

    It is a wonderful premise , with absolutely sterling qualities.
    But often devoid of passion. I don't label ya intentions.
    I just think we should also be open to the spontanaeity that
    can be found when two spirits genuinely connect!
    I did enjoy the scribe! I however tend to lead with my heart
    and so far as I am concerned, nothing ventured nothing earned!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!:D

    i must apologize...

    in my younger dayz
    when hitt'n the pantiez
    was more important than relationships
    and the short term was more important than the long term
    i would say whatever was needed to accomplish my goal.

    now that i'm on a different level
    where deep, meaningful relationships mean more than one-time pleasures, i realize the error of my wayz in my younger dayz...and ask all those women that gave into my deceit...to please forgive me.

    A CONSCIOUS RIVER FLOWING FROM YOUR PEN, MAPLY ONE.
    THANKS FOR LETTING ME SWIM FOR A WHILE.:)

    where ya been?

    Thanx...

    ...poets, I just had to get that off my chest; and I knew I wasn't the only one.
    zhay and Ms. A:D- Ya'll don't know what it is to have my fellow scribes feel and appreciate such a touchy subject.

    Kitana- I couldn't have summarized it better, myself. Thanx for checkin' me...:D

    msluciousb- Thanx for readin' and for the imput. And, don't get me wrong, I'm definitely all for spontaneity. But this piece is based, solely, on those times we may just just want a friend, and not a boy/girlfriend ('cause I know this piece could hit close to home with men, as well as women). Thanx again for the read :D!

    Mr. Baller- You flow well, when you're not even tryin' to flow, did anybody ever tell you that? I am going to grant you that forgiveness, on behalf of those ladies; but any man who can realize (on his own, anyway) the error of his ways is already forgiven, as far as I'm concerned. You must forgive yourself first, luv...:D
