    Only a few times I remember being with you frequently...you'd kiss me there
    I built a fence in those days as the months went by never asking...why
    Of course thoughts of you have slipped my mind , your presence once I
    dare not to recall
    Slowly I've eliminated you from my mind and looking back is not an option !
    Sometimes when passing in the street I see you and could care less if you..
    greet me
    I can remember our beautiful meetings , our disappointments , not allowing
    myself to linger...a sigh of relief knowing I have no regrets
    In those days shadows worked against our unions and silence became the forbidden language...love fought for a second chance
    We moaned through lips that smiled , whispered and touched as we lay side by side sifting through ectasy's maddness
    For one last good-bye we laughed together after many hours spent no more
    of one another...there's nothing left to share and if I look back...going
    forward...will just be a dream simplifying I'm dead . Choosing rather to live...
    I KEEP LOOKING AHEAD ! :flamet:

    Sometimes that's all we can do, look ahead to keep from falling back. This scribe caught my attention in the way it was posed. Keep writing.
