    I Know You
    For the Thousandth’s of time I have said
    I Know You

    But I Believe, You Don’t Know Your Man.

    When I answer you in what seems a parable
    Is it Calculus hard like math?

    You constantly say
    You don’t under stand the words, what I say.

    Don’t tune me out! That isn’t mature.

    Baby a parable can be like a fable. A story I feel must be conveyed.
    I know between us there is a wall of confusion
    That keeps us from reaching our stars.

    A parable really is an accounting
    To bring you up on where we are

    On_ Anything.

    New hopes and past dreams.
    Baby I am down on that too.

    So when I speak to you I only give straight talk
    I need and only want a straight talker you coo.
    Fusing arguments then, begins again

    About Old Past.
    About New Friends
    Loosing Focus on Us

    How I seem to disagree with something you’ve done

    If I account and you don’t
    Or just say what is needed to clear
    Your space, and mind of
    What You Say Is Junk.

    Girl how you Think that
    Makes Me Feel
    For I know We have Conquered Love Heights you and me

    unreal

    What is junk. It Is
    What ever is splitting our focus

    Off of Us.

    See you and me taking care, Never to leave
    Keep the loving
    Everything will be Ok

    Because my heart is all yours.
    You pushing away
    As I often say

    Baby, what happened to us
    You Feel You
    Don’t Owe Me
    A Reply

    Isn’t that Selfish I Think
    When did Our Love hit the Brink?
    Or has it Gone Over the Edge?

    Then … It Dawns on Me really
    Like an epiphany

    So I Say … your attention is actually with me now.
    I speak to account the same parable
    Taking a sample of your love you emit
    When you are smiling
    It tells me tons of things
    About, You and Me!

    My account as it relates
    Is to check my baby’s face
    In your eyes
    I can see clear to your heart
    I Know You

    Thank You watz
    You Always be Having Me Thinking Correctly.
    Maybe the Power of True Love is Scary!
    To Whom?
    To one that may be afraid to Wager ( a heart maybe )
    Gamble on What they See and Know to be Real and True

    Intense Love. ( some call it demanding )

    Granted. How much time is needed?

    I promise not to purposely break it.
    Disappoint it!

    Tomorrrow isn't promised.

    Neither is the next 60 seconds....:killpc:

    So LOVE ( in life, love your life, love a life ) for the moment.
    Live for the moment.. like children do.

    Enjoy life. It isn't hard. It is beautiful and kind.

    When it turns dark and ruff.
    And it can.
    Refocus on your Loves.

    Hopefully they are to be the best you can be, do the best you can do. Pray for understanding and wisdom to understand the difference. Handle the issues and problems you can, and let the weighted ones fade.

    Sorry Bro$$RICH$$:injured:
    Last night sparked this.:peace:
    As relations all separate and whole. Come together.
    There are
    Questions Abound.

    External forces:rain:, push at the cellar door.
    Well I just gonna have to... put my foot down. On that cellar floor!
    Checking on my love man.. It's a love check. She passes for sure.
    She likes to call me a bully for demanding Love.:bully:
