    A single rose brings back to me
    A sweet, simple, single memory
    Of how everything used to be
    I was intrigued
    By the way that you captivated me
    I was indeed
    Sprung off of your natural ecstacy
    I was in need
    Of someone who would understand me
    One who built up a family
    Of emotions within me.
    Your natural perfume is ever-so-sweetly
    Lingering
    Around my senses
    My heart did not go unmentioned
    But there is something that has arised my attention.
    What we seemed to have
    I could not fully grasp
    And now it has
    Become a thing of the past
    How much I wanted it to last
    Didn't seem to personificate
    This love affair that was supposed to be great
    There was supposed to be nothing there to debate
    Everything was meant to be
    Heavenly
    But here we are, just about to break.
    We would wait
    And try to see what the other had to say
    But we seemed not to have the courage to break
    The front that we both seemed to create.
    So,
    Finally let me say
    It is this that I am sorry to say.
    I cannot live one more day
    Of making things sem
    Ever-so-sweet
    Our time together has reached it's peak
    And now I must be on my way.........


    :heart: :heart: PLAY:heart: :heart:

    It’s funny about how time passes, on park benches
    I feel like I’ve spent time in war trenches
    Trying to ignore the inevitable,
    Slow down the predictable,
    That soon you’d be in my past……
    I put up with you day after day.
    Saying that you were my baby…
    Putting on you so many labels
    Can’t live without you, I wouldn’t be able
    But you couldn’t make us last…………
    I needed you for stability
    I wanted to make a family
    But I wanted something real
    I need something you couldn’t feel
    I couldn’t challenge my heart…….
    I can’t spend my life living something so fake
    I fantasized about a man, not a flake
    So no longer will this be
    I’ll be merciful and set both our hearts free
    We weren’t destined from the start….



    :love: SwtT
