    Time is steadily flying right on by us
    Why because you're still caught up
    Still living on that old stuff
    How many times do I have to say I'm sorry for all the grimey things I did
    Big deal so found out about my shady past
    But why can't you see I'm here with you
    So you got the last laugh
    I'm no longer concerned with what's his face
    He's long gone, from my mind he's been erased
    Please don't leave me
    I'll try to be the perfect girl you thought I was
    Why can't we move on from this
    It happened over four years ago
    I'm a different person from back then
    On dead dawgs I swear
    I'm so hurt by your pain
    But yet I can't cry or shead anymore tears
    Why because though I'm sorry, yet I'm not ashamed of what I've done
    These were my mistakes and I have learned to live with them
    So think what'ch you want to because I'm tired of apologizing
    You said sorry wasn't enough
    So please tell me what is then

    We need to move on

    Move on booh
    Things like this sometimes happens
    What can you do
    Life's just funny like that
    But I still love you
    One!!

    Perhaps he need to have a rude awakening to the fact that..."baggage" is almost eveywhere in someone's past. And maybe some just don't asjust well to "Past". giving the fact that you can't change it. The problem don't lie with you...

    True dat, but he's my heart and soul no matter how hard I try to make him he can't get over the things I've done. I don't want to leave him

    He said: Sorry isn't enough,
    You said: of course sorry isn't enough, so continue to hurt me.

    I read the poem you wrote, and I understood it.
    Now read what I just wrote above, ...and understand.

    Thank you all for the suport,
    and queentswana: I understand what'ch you saying but it's deeper then that and I understand where he's coming from because if the shoe was on the other foot I'll probably feel the same way.
    So peep this though it hurts to know he's still on the past we still love eachother and this is just another obstacle we have to overcome I just had to express how I felt since he aint listening I had to get it off my chest yi-mean.

    I surely do understand you, cause I been there, done that. And I do wish you the best. however, if you can't straighten it out...then you need to take some time to think about what's or who is really the victim. Until then, I'm keeping my fingers cross for the both of you. :roll: ing right along.
