    I want to take all my kisses back after all the pain that you've brought,
    I need to snatch my smiles back, you're not the person that I thought,
    I have to steal my hugs away, now that you've lied to me,
    I will take back all the words I said, I hate the person that I see,
    I regret all my happy thoughts, now that I've seen the real you,
    I erase all my memories, since our life together is through,
    I gave them all so willingly, my heart and sould to keep,
    Now that you've torn them both apart, I know not how I sleep.

    Alyce - Thanks heaps, that means a lot coming from a poet such as yourself.

    Windwalker - Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my piece.

    Rich - as always your comments are deeply appreciated my friend.

    Brotherman - I hear what you're saying, but sometimes, something can be for nothing and you can walk away without learning anything positive from the experience.

    Thanks heaps everyone.
