    It is believed that if a man is cheating. It isn't based on love. I beg to differ . It has to be for me to give in. One of them I feel love. Casual sex, seems so shallow.

    If what I am jeapardizing has run it's course. I have told her, many times. She didn't hear me of course. I also told her she doesn't listen to me. Nothing happens all of a sudden there are exchanges before grief.

    My new has already heard me say I'm in love with thee. No surprizes to her, it is clear to me. Her response must be clear, I take in her needs.

    If a love affair is discovered. It usually ends the match. You had in a relationship. It tears up the past. Most times, you turn to the one you engaged. Then find out they were only in it. As a casual thing. Now you have lost the chance to repair your love. It's all torn up. Can't turn to your mate, the affair isn't there. Feeling caught in the middle messed up bad fate.

    Now I will admit, there are instances of course. Someone comes along and all reason is divorced. I'm tempted your tempted to give it a try.

    Look deep before you leap taken into the fire. I need to know, my mates mind and her life. Meet her friends, know her trends. See her interact share her life. I'm not needy. No way. I need my space too. But a balance of sharing together time isn't to much to ask of you. Offer on the table one time. My criteria is verbalized. I don't deviate I'm set. You will find my criteria like an oak tree, hard. All things must come together.

    if i were caught cheating
    we've already experienced
    a spiritual disconnect
    we've already moved away
    from one another and
    moved on to someone else

    if i were caught cheating
    please forgive yourself
    you have done nothing wrong
    it is i who selfishly let my
    body tell you something
    my lips refused to utter

    if i were caught cheating
    i've already turned away
    from you more times then
    you could probably count
    my touch is lighter and
    much colder than it was

    if i were caught cheating
    my view of monogamy is
    already tainted beyond belief
    i always thought i'd walk
    away before i made that
    choice and i'm sorry

    so before i get caught
    cheating i'm going to
    tell you that i've been
    thinking about cheating
    now what do we do
    about all of that?

    This is what I think we should do

    I don't want to be taken for granted.
    I would not take you for granted I know.
    If you take time to tell me.
    Before it takes place.
    There is hope.

    This is what we do.
    Sit down share a moment maybe some serious time to brew.
    Talk lots of talk. Eye contact is a must.
    So I can see into the windows of your heart and soul.
    I want and would say to you. Look at me please.
    I would make sure to give you the same.

    I would ask hard questions.
    Answers I know you can give.

    The topic is us. I'm serious.

    I wouldn't be upset you said these things.
    In fact all I ever wanted was to be as open it seems.
    Ask me , demand some change. I can adapt not afraid. Tell the truth.
    Build with me. You'll get nothing less than truth and open honesty.
    Be blunt. I like how you just came.
    I want to hold you my love, but first the talking and exchange.

    Wow...now that flowed so genuinely, like your gut actually started formulating words and phrases. And IfUcomesoftly, your flow back was right on point. There are things we do know, but don't want to admit because it hurts too much. A good example of how honest communication can go a long way.

    My sweet, sweet Hodee

    It’s times like this when I remember
    Just why, when, and where we fell
    So deep into one another
    I remember when you use to
    Complete my sentences
    When I thought it was cute
    And not that you were trying
    To choose my words for me

    I remember a time when I looked
    At out children and thought of
    Our foolish, fleeting youth
    And I’d see that same devilish
    Gleam in those beautiful eyes
    And now all I see is regret
    I don’t know what you’re missing
    But I'm tired of trying to find it
    In the present, our future, in me

    I remember a time when our
    Lovemaking was passionate
    And not mechanical and lifeless.
    Your kisses use to move me
    Overcome me with need,
    Want, and desire but now
    I’m tired of going through the
    Same old motions from day to day
    I’m tired of just being, breathing,
    And not really living. I’m tired.

    I remember a time when
    We use to be in love

    Do you?

    My reply.
    Your exchange.

    Come Here. Please let's discuss this!




    “I remember when you use to
    Complete my sentences”


    Yes I recall this too.
    Didn’t you know I could only accomplish such?
    Because I’m so into you.


    “And I’d see that same devilish
    Gleam in those beautiful eyes”


    So tell me what do you see?
    They are still looking for the love.
    You once had only for me.
    You’re the one who said they were thinking of straying.

    I plead my words.
    Hoping that you will staying.
    With the one that needs you.

    You know I can please you.
    I have always treated you good.

    I still have that fire.

    Those devilish eyes.
    And desire.

    To please you

    So open up to me.
    If you want it
    Stay and see.
    I will forgive that you may have been dishonest

    Build again with me.
    This time a foundation made of rock
    That will stand the test of time.

    IfUComeSoftly

    You know why you don’t see that gleam?
    You’re not looking into my eyes. It seems.
    Your lips are speaking, your heart isn’t here.
    I know you.

    You say all you have now is regret, but you haven’t
    Given me your heart.
    In this relationship.
    Yet.

    Reflection is real.
    If you’re feeling neglected.
    You get.
    What you give.

    ” I remember a time when our
    Lovemaking was passionate
    And not mechanical and lifeless.”


    That hurts.
    It’s not true.
    If you didn’t push me away.

    Focus on me.
    I have love enough to make you moan.
    Bringing passion, lots of action.
    Love’s not made by me alone.

    “Your kisses use to move me
    Overcome me with need”


    When my kisses use to overcome you.
    It was because you kissed me back.

    I don’t fake love; it’s hard to make love.
    Knowing your thoughts are with someone else.

    As much as I don’t want you to go.
    I won’t hold you any longer.
    I want to see you happy.

    :bye: Ok go.

    To the one who convinced you that he can do more.
    That he will be there, when darkness hits the door.

    It’s game from him.
    You see grand standing.
    Watch him fold.
    When you come into the relationship demanding.

    Some time.
    Some Attention.
    Some of the ingredients it takes.

    He has nothing in the long run.
    I have hung with you.
    Now you’re telling me.
    It’s too late.

    yes

    Most times, you turn to the one you engaged. Then find out they were only in it. As a casual thing. Now you have lost the chance to repair your love. It's all torn up. Can't turn to your mate, the affair isn't there.

    i think that must people are foolish to risk what the have
    over something that won't be there in the long run aways

    peace

    we may find love, but without communication it will die.
    communication is the key that unlocks the door to love's
    greatest possibilities.


    nice write. Thanks for sharing
