    what i thought was love
    has died within me
    must have died quietly a little each day
    until i woke up one morning and it was gone
    the only button to push
    called self destruct
    called numbness
    called hurt
    what i thought was love
    was simply a one way ticket
    no refunds, no rebate, no return
    i walk, i function, i smile and i laugh
    but when it comes to love
    i don't believe it exists
    love is a fairy tale...a painful emotion
    one that can rip your very core
    and in turn...you can become a shell
    if you are not careful
    love can kill your spirit
    damage your heart
    steep you in dysfunction
    love is a lie

    LOVE CAN BE

    Holding hands... a walk in the park
    Kissing against a willow tree in the dark

    Love can be

    A warm touch that makes the spark
    Into a flame
    Makes you want to change
    Your last name


    Love can be refreshing as
    A cool drink of water
    On a hot summers day...

    I say

    Never give up on love
    Because its what life
    Is made of

    Without it we...are...not

    Love from the inside out
    And you will find what love is all about

    It is about you

    There is no road map
    No handbook
    It is live and learn
    It is search and look

    Love can be

    Everything we want it to be
    If we make better choices
    ****************************************************
    From my heart to yours Redlady (smile)...even when you don't want to! :heart:

    love has lied to you !
    it was not love itself
    but the face it posed
    he so loveth shall be loved
    we love thou self forth others will love and be loved
    yes i feel u as love lied to u
    he told u he would and didn't
    he hurt da heart and took it through pain
    but that kinda love is a myth of what true love is
    we make love be what we wish and pose it to be
    true love we can't see just feel as false love pain
    what a shame ........but don't blame love
    as once said ....world wicked
    it's not the world so wicked but the peoples in it
    this also apply to love
    a true love will come upon u and u will feel the depth
    of true real love that don't lie yet bring u smiles
    i feel u and understand
    stop by the sistah chat tonight at 8 and hear and voice ya view
    on love !

    love has two sides to it. it can be painful,hurtful,or it can be beautiful,passionate,.
    i am sad that u experienced the painful and hurtful, but there is another side to love.

    i've seen both sides, i'm no youngster, and matter of fact, it's because i'm no baby i've come to the conclusion that love is a lie...seen it, felt it, the good and the bad...but my conclusion is that love is a lie...so don't feel sorry for what i have experienced...you all can belive the hype if you want to...i just know it's hype...and a lie.

    call it a mystery if you choose...i call it a lie...because people are inherently selfish...and do not take other people's feelings into consideration when they are doing their own **** thing most of the time...people can love with one hand and hurt with the other...and some people just don't give a ****, only care about their own desires and their own flesh...say things like "ima do me" so yes, in my opinion, love is a straight up lie.

    Sis

    You have come to a realization that fits your perception from a real experience. None of us can see into your world because we are not you.

    My words to you are this:

    I will pray to God first to watch over you and send all the angels and arche-angles to watch over you here on earth. Your spirit has been broken...that is THE lie! You will not be defeated by the evilness that is trying to destroy you. I believe this for you. I need all who read this to believe this ... for you.

    Where would we be without love?
