    Good morning heartache!
    How you doing my old friend.
    Seems I have had this conversation
    way back when.
    Where did I go wrong?
    And what can I do to win him back.
    Face the facts you had his front and
    his back.
    You never disappointed, though
    you were not perfect and no one
    is...But, it was not you putting
    shnit up in the home biz.
    Shall I pour you coffee "Regret"!
    You look surprised to see me here.
    I know I said I would not be back...
    I wouldn't complain or shed a tear!
    But misery loves company, I guess
    that's why she visits all the time.
    Coming to your workplace.
    Interupting your train of thought
    in the grocery line.
    Yeah she must get pretty lonely
    she wears a dress of negativity!
    Her ears drip with withered grapevines
    from the gossip, given and received.
    Would you have been better off
    if you never had believed.
    Well, they say a man will be a man!
    I don't buy it never will and never can.
    Gotta get my coat and hat and go, I have been here long enough, there
    is nothing else I need to know.
    Now it's not that I don't understand, this need for company...but wouldn't you rather spend it in quiet solitude
    instead of insatiable misery?

    I'm miserable, let's collab... pm me. :D

    I'm reading this thinking about how good it was,
    and how it seems that there is a novel in you
    aching to be written.

    THanks for blessing my house with your praise!

    Yes indeed, I feel the need to collaborate and investigate new avenues to get through to some of you and all of us...who need to discuss the issue of trust and distrust...Thanks for responding so kindly and earnestly to my piece. I have been missing gettin my flow on...And for those who didin't know I am writing a novel a work of fiction due out next year "Diary of a Bigg Butt Woman".
    So I am not done scribing and vibing or telling my story...There will be a part two of Misery!
    Blessings On All Y'all
