    Growing tired
    Of a love desired
    Acquired simultaneously
    Required miscellaneously
    Through the good and bad
    Replacing all the mislabeled
    Ones I’ve had

    Growing weary
    Left leery
    Of any possible proven theory
    A repeated, defeated plea
    For him to, really, get to know ME
    And love me anyway
    The full array
    Through the good and the bad
    Replacing all the mislabeled
    Ones I’ve had

    Growing jaded
    With hope faded and blockaded
    By a poorly-persuaded
    And debated
    Subject: Love
    An elusive object
    Running wild and unchecked
    With me left trying to protect
    Myself from the effect
    On my heart, wrecked
    From abuse and neglect
    By trying once more
    To score greater
    Than I have before
    With a willing and fulfilling affection
    A mind, body, and spirit connection
    Through the good and the bad
    Replacing all the mislabeled
    Ones I’ve had.

    This was reminiscent of a waiting to exhale vibe sister cherry
    It was a quiet but contemplative reflection and I can relate :read:
    Props my sister poetess :read: :)

    Whew, I'm feeling this. You would think that love wouldn't be elusive, but it sure does seem that way. Well expressed scribe.

    Rich, Triniti, Watz, So'j, and Queen:

    Thank you all!

    It's like Bobby Blue Bland said, "You've Got To Hurt Before You Heal."
