    I blame myself for the emptiness now
    wasted my best stuff in so arms many
    years ago
    it's not your fault

    Now I only warm our bed
    while you secretly wish
    I'd quench your fire

    I look at you, younger,
    because that's the way
    it's always been with me

    (they are all about your age now)
    mature beauty, full of brimming
    passion, coming through
    with that mellow silver
    highlighting your hairline

    I smile because you are
    still so very sexy
    I stiffen in reflex memory
    between my thighs

    you are the one I chose to
    take that walk with
    the only one in all my
    52 years

    I look at you when you're
    not looking, with all that
    bright expectation in your eyes

    and can't believe how much
    my heart aches

    because I'm bankrupt
    I spilled the best of me
    so many years ago

    and I'm the one to blame
    for the emptiness now

    for as long as you have breath in your body and love in your heart, you can change it all around...turning the sadness into happiness..it's never too late for love..

    Thank you everyone. I'm trying my hand at "letting it all hang out". It's real, and sad, and real sad, sometimes.

    That was an eye opener and compelling scribe. I fret them days and hope to maintain my moneymaker forever!!!! That was just a figure of speech, ya know.
