    I have anger not because
    you got married,
    I was egotistical enough
    to think you'd come to me
    anyway
    and to further add insult to
    injury (in my demented state of mind)
    I didn't mind being
    number two

    As long as
    I could have some
    time with you

    no,
    I don't blame you a bit
    for doing what you did
    because I wasn't ever
    gonna come through

    but I am mad at you

    how could you?
    How could you go for
    another d/l lover
    when you knew
    I was here
    for you?

    You had me believing
    all that could ever
    go on between us
    were those infrequent
    "happy birthday" calls
    that
    went from
    yearly
    to every two years

    I stayed my ***
    securely located
    in listed in the phone book
    just so you could find me

    And all that time
    ALL THAT DAYUM TIME
    you let someone else
    satisfy
    that fire
    I KNOW I STARTED
    in you

    No, I'm not angry
    because you needed
    a ring, a house, some kids
    and everything

    I'm mad because
    I should've been the
    one
    you came back to
    after you got
    the one
    who married you

    these are the feeling and thoughts that some are only too scared to hear. Reminds me of my uncle, his girlfriend only found out he was getting married to his fiance' a week before the wedding..!she had no idea what so ever that he was engaged to someone else...I can imagine her feeling the same way that Bert feels. Vent it out !!!

    lo'

    it seems that feellings of betrayal and hurt (disguised as anger) suggest the lady has a bigger peice of your heart than you admit to giving away..or have I read this all wrong..

    Aww....
    i feld the pain in youre scrybe...



    it hurts me to see others hurt.....




    Bert just know .......that you may be angry now because she got married
    and dissapointed .But you never want to be with someone who doesn,t feel the same about you....
    You want to go for the real thing.....
    dont fool yourself..
    ...


    but just know that there is someone ....
    for everyone......

    realy....


    just believe in the lord....
    and let yourself be guided by him..







    much strength to you....
    You are going to be alright...






    LoveAuroraflower:heart:
