    So caught up

    Kicking around words

    Trying to give THIS meaning

    Through defining IT with titles

    We forget to just make LOVE

    Our love become a tug of war

    Both of us trying to be the leader

    What was once so unbreakably solid

    Is now crumbling before our very eyes

    Now we at the crossroads of indecision

    Do we let it go without one last fight

    or do we dig in deeper and salvage

    Saving the love we once knew

    mmmmmph what do we do

    if you have to ask the question, it's too late to resurrect past emotions. love should never be a struggle that goes beyond "do i want to fight for you...to be with you...one last time?"

    Well...."Decisions. Decisions."

    'Sounds like it's time to "doo-doo or git off tha pot."

    But you penned the mental and emotional turmoil of this wonderfully!

    a creative reminder of how easy it is for love to take a back seat to responsibilities, titles and other frivalous matters. So ofter love is reduced to an emotion, when (in my humble opinion) love is a verb...a lifestylce...a decision...a principle...a vestige...

    Thank you for the reminder to "Make Love" a priority.

    Great write Asimplepoet!
