    I have engaged in a love affair.
    and to love...
    I dared...
    and pulled my heart out from within my soul.
    I gave him part of me...
    no longer whole.

    I engaged in a love affair...
    from beginning to end...
    And i can't even fathom...
    no i can't even begin...
    to think what it would be like alone...
    once he is gone...

    I engaged in a love affair...
    a love like no other.
    We shared everything...
    from one to another.
    Our hugs were everlasting..
    kisses with such passion...
    progress was old fashion...
    And yet it isn't lasting...

    I engaged in a love affair...
    abruptly coming to an end...
    He wants to know...
    if we can still be friends...
    Even though fire burns..
    and the love continues to grow...
    He cries about not being man enough...
    and in return he has to go.

    To let me love him just to leave...
    And all the stories he told...
    all the dreams...
    and in him i believed.
    But he's leaving me cause he feels he's not man enough for me.

    And sista gurl...

    Empty promises... and broken dreams... he isn't ready to commit!

    Let him go gurl before you
    stress yourself out - way out!
    It is unfortunate that he hasn't
    the courage to finish what he
    has obviously started with you,
    but at least you know now...
    and I'm quite sure you will find
    someone who is "man" enough
    to enhance you and likewise...
    don't waste anymore time
    wishing in a well that's gone dry!

    One luv sista gurl... I'll keep you in my thoughts & prayers!

    Thank Ya!!!

    Baby Girl...I needed that. Just seems so strange. Doesn't want to leave but says he's going to. I just want all of it to end. To come to some conclusion so I can deal with it in my own way.

    Closure is best ...

    Remember: "we can't control the actions of others, but you can control what you do."

    Don't allow folks to play with your mind & heart ~ not everyone has your best interest in mind.

    Peace gurl!

    Oneluv.

    this piece was felt in my heart. There isn't more I can add that N2 hasn't said already....

    But remember you must protect your healthy regard for yourself. You are worthy of far better.

    MY MY MY

    Your words are hearfelt and drowned in hesitation.
    To love him or not to?
    Sistah, if he ain't man enough for you.
    Then other girl is 10,000 leagues beneath you.
    You are a queen and should never render yourself
    To a selfish man.
    KEEP ON.
    I just hope i did it justice while I was reading to myself.

    luv

    once, i knew a woman...

    who was too cute...too nice...to delicate. during our time together, i felt that she was too much woman for me. that was my excuse because i didn't want to hurt her--this was during my corrupt days. after we ended the love, we became good friends.

    sorry for the tangent.

    maybe it's time to move on. you can't make a person be ready when he's not ready. he has to come into that, himself.

    One.
