    Five long years.....
    We've had our laughs and I've
    cried my tears.
    We've had our ups and downs and then I have
    been through you, tried to get over you
    But always winded up back
    under you.

    Five long years......
    I've finally accept the terms of our
    "relationship". You and me are
    an unusual pair
    No matter how much you piss me off
    I will always be there.
    Just like I have always been
    But I don't think anyone would really understand
    But it's cool, because I don't give a d-mn

    I don't know if our love is for all of the wrong reasons
    But I know I choose to continue it consiously
    I have been hurt by , and I turned around and hurt you back
    One year after the other we play this game
    Who break's who's heart first
    Who shed's the most tears......

    But we will we get off ourselves?
    When will we stop playing Roulette with our minds?

    No matter what, I tried to leave you
    I tried to decieve you
    I always found something in you
    That kept me from leaving you

    No matter what, I know know you will always have my heart.
    I stopped fighting it three seconds ago

    I second phenomenal's response. You know deep inside what the relationship is, and what it's not. Ages and stages. Flow on, I hear what you're saying, and liked the way you said it.

    Heartstopping ending...

    So good to see you back with us girl...
    this was a poignant and emotionally raw piece
    ...unashamed of the love, passion and pain...
    that brought it forth...

    I think this poem alone describes what every black woman feels when she's with her man after a while. I'm truly feeling this. Madd props sistah.

    Wow, this makes me think of a lotta things, SwtT. Like, what really is love? You are finding out. And you won't know how this story will turn out unless you live it. I admire your courage in following your heart, and dig the beauty of this write very much.

    It is SO GOOD to read you again, baby sis. :dance3:
