    Pride
    Is my comfort
    When love goes away
    They say
    Pride goeth before destruction
    But what if pride is the only thing you have left ?
    What if it is the only thing
    That wraps you tight at night
    And keeps you warm
    What if your pride is the only one
    Who loves you
    Cares for you
    Keeps you strong
    In times of weakness
    When all others say
    You are not worthy
    Pride is the one that says
    I love you
    You are a queen
    A worthy partner
    Irreplaceable
    Everything you hope to be
    Is all that I see you as
    Pride
    My biggest sin
    I kneel everyday and ask for forgivness
    For the Lord to take away
    The only thing that I can see
    But still
    Pride
    Is my comfort
    When love goes away

    Natasha....lemme tell ya girl...

    I do feel you on this. There is this element of self-respect that makes some of us (men and women) careful about the way we leave the "scene of the crime" when it's over. I'm not a loud sista...and when my heart is broken ~ I retreat to my private closet to scream my pain. When love is gone .... I recognize there is nothing I can do of myself to bring it back...so, begging and whining just isn't an option for me.

    But I will flow tears and slang snot....me, and myself and pride....together~alone.

    Keep expressing! This is soooooo good sis!

    Thank you

    a
