    If I could love you more
    then surely I would
    but just as the day forgets the night
    I forget the bad remembering the good

    Some nights your arms cover me
    like the earth's anchor keeping me from dreams
    but when the cool sun salutes a pregnant dawn
    your hands and lips say all is not as it seems

    Perhaps it's merely the instinctual
    fear that followed my grandmother from the Ivory Coast
    that gives me headaches
    every time you force me to hear your boasts

    I think in February I could leave
    but all too soon its May
    and the thought that November will come
    always makes me stay

    That was nice. But, don't stay too long if he's doing wrong. Self-love is a beautiful thing.

    Nice...very nice.


    Thanks for sharing.

    :toast: :D

    I'm feeling this because I've been there so many times. I love this poem.
