    How can i fall in love with you?
    I know I deserve more
    How can my heart betray my mind
    and my soul never find
    what others have?
    You say you care about me
    maybe you do,
    but what about when i need you
    to comfort me, hold me, console me?
    Sundays are the hardest for me.
    those family times I used to be
    the center of it all and now
    alone,
    only the center of self
    and at times, I won't lie
    I love it.
    But, last night, dinner
    for just me and you,
    turned into just me.
    Again
    Alone
    And i find myself wondering if you'll call
    and now I know the answer, "no."
    I deadbolt the door,
    knowing you won't come tonight.
    I close my bedroom door
    and I try to remember what it was like
    when he'd rock me to sleep.
    I was content for so long
    and now I can't replace that feeling
    that longing for human comfort, and i weep.
    They tell me I will get used to the quiet
    that they can't believe what I miss.
    (and they knew how bad got)
    i should have kept my mouth shut
    and my head locked
    i couldn't take it anymore
    and then you came to me,
    not promising anything,
    and i fell in love
    with your spirit, your mind
    the man that you are
    and really when i look deep
    i think i just loved the idea of love
    and it wasn't you at all
    how could it be when you
    have given me nothing when i need it.

    girl...i am feeling you so much on this...i don't even know you but i feel that i do because a lot of what you write about i have been through myself.

    "i think i just loved the idea of love
    and it wasn't you at all"

    that is me in a nut shell...you are not alone in these feelings so never think you are. much love for this. keep it flowin'.

    Companionship….is priceless and sometimes that need for touch
    mentally and emotionally outweighs the logic of “is it true love” or
    “love at all”……..we all need that comfort, even if it is only the
    “Idea” of love that we have……

    I know how this feels…sometimes it’s just reassuring to have them there

    can i steal your tag line "pain makes me stronger"
    two very different kinds of pain you and I are going through but that line says it all. Love you.

    LOL, I don't have a tag line...but if you want that one
    it's up for grabs...pain doesn't make me stronger...
    it hurts...I simply like to release, heal and move on...

    Sorry I misinterpreted your message....blame my logic
    and not my heart.......I suppose there are just remnants
    of emotion felt in your work that connects with remnants
    of past experiences in me......much luv to u, Angeli
