    Hello,
    My lovely
    i know you're wondering
    why i decided to write you
    when we're no longer seeing each other
    in that way
    ...why, when i saw you last
    i didn't just say what it is i have to say

    well

    i just wanted you to know
    i felt you on my mind last night
    slow walking
    softly
    across mental synapses
    wispfully caressing
    the in's and out's of my love jones

    i hope nothing's wrong

    ...hope you'll continue to grace me
    with your sense of humor and beautiful smile
    why don't you visit me once in a while
    anytime will do
    i know i've had opportunities to get next to you
    and, in the off chance that opportunity is extended again
    i'm up for the challenge
    if not,
    we could remain friends

    just wanted you to know.:)

    i know you might be thinking
    that i'm missing your body
    ...our thirty minute kissing sessions
    and those wonderful moves you make
    when we're getting our groove thang on
    but you'd be wrong
    or
    maybe i should say
    that that's not who i am {any more}
    yes...
    i miss the two of us
    lost in the memory of the groove of us
    mostly, i miss the smile of your eyes
    ...the many conversations we had between us
    'bout nothing at all
    the small things
    like the sound of your call
    when you wanted my attention
    or the caress you gave
    when you wanted much more
    i adore all of you
    your dark skin lovely
    the sway of your hips, too
    i miss you
    the sound of your laughter
    reverberating throughout the room
    love making and playfulness
    under the stars and moon
    racing through the grass
    like kiddies at play
    the sweet memories we mad
    as we held onto yesterday
    there are others, i know
    but none quite like you
    i'm late, with this, YES
    but, ****, i'm missing you

    i don't deserve your forgiveness
    this, i must confess
    in your place
    i couldn't forgive you
    of the things i did
    there's no man who
    could get over the deception
    lies
    and
    abuse
    and especially those feelings
    of just being used
    I KNOW
    I KNOW
    but i can't let you go
    walk right out of my life
    without at least trying, yo'
    with all my bad intentions
    and emotional faults
    i love you
    babygirl
    we can work this **** out.

    just wanted you to know.
