    3rd eye open

    Hopin...

    You...


    see me through the

    m i r r o r ~ r o r r i m

    of my Eyes

    now b l u r r e d from

    Contin U al night cries
    ...heart dies
    ......mind lies
    ...............soul cries
    MY...
    ...............SOUL
    ..........................CRIES

    I LOVE YOU
    My Muse

    My...
    Mate of Soul

    love in bloom
    emotions runnin through
    fields of flowers
    skin pricked by
    the thorns of Love's Rose

    I suppose...
    this is the road most traveled
    by Love's Traveler
    yet
    I continue the journey
    love lacking reciprocity
    he is the thorn in my side

    love~life~spirituality and creativity from me

    BUT
    I Love him...my Muse

    Yet...

    as I love me more
    I listen as my heart and God speaks and I abide

    ~~Loving Him From A Distance~~

    ...i always say, one of the best things about loving
    someone is that we choose how we want to do it...

    unfortunately... sometimes it has to be from afar.

    be thankful for the journey... Always!!

    OneLuv.

    Much love yall

    this peace is about a friend of mine, not someone that I'm romantically involved in. Although it feel like an unfortunate to me, it's a blessing that I'm still single.

    Thanks for the love yall!!!:heart:
    It's been a long time!

    I COULD ONLY RESPOND IN POETIC FORM..THANK YOU 4 THE INSPIRATION

    :eek: What kind of a "FRIEND" could knowingly
    Do this to you...
    Making a heart so gifted, so talented~
    Feel so blue...What is wrong with this FOOL...
    :cool: Can he not see~
    Or is there another reason for his lack of receprocity...
    Is he shy or lack confidence, where you are concerned~
    :confused: Might he be fearful of his advances being spurned...
    Afraid to go where not invited, already a victim of happenstance!

    ;) As for me...were it I~
    Around you I would wrap my arms...that is...with your permission...
    Holding you gently, tenderly~
    :eek: On the lookout for any harm...
    That might cause your lovely poetic soul to lose any of it's charm...
    Accutely aware of such a malady's consternation~
    ;) Snatching you up like bargains at Filene's...
    Using both credit cards, and cash..WITHOUT HESITATION!

    :x: But then again~
    The joy that would fill my heart...
    At your non-contumaciousness~
    Might be too much to bear..so therefore...
    :toast: Were I to find my self basking in your presence~
    I could only pray not to be the cause...
    :rolleyes: Of a reaction like that~
    Which you have described poetically...
    And here's hoping that you find the COURAGE~
    To TELL HIM..eventually...:love:
    :kiss: For how can HE possibly reciprocate~
    If he is unaware...
    You may find yourself surprised to discover~
    :heart: Exactly how much..HE truly cares!!

    AFRI......Most often when I read you I feel as though I become
    immersed in your words...needing to climb out of them to discern
    the who, what, where, when, how and why!!
    :kiss: Keep doing that to me!!!
    I like it:heart: :heart: :heart: !:)))
