    Why do I weep you asK?
    these tears are for the insecurity
    self doubt and deep despair
    that he left while passing through
    these tears are the amends
    these tears are for you.

    they are not to serve as pity
    for I respect you too much
    they are the sorrow born of
    concern and love that
    hurts when you hurt

    these tears i shed for you
    give little shelter
    yet I can not stop their flow

    they are in protest of the pain
    he caused

    for the all the times he wounded your spirit
    I cry
    for countless times he broke your heart
    I cry
    for the many he injured your person
    I cry

    I want to wrap my love around you
    and provide your soul
    with the warmth and security
    that faith breeds
    as to promote
    healing
    so you will love you
    the way that I love you

    so I stand here poised
    with broad shoulders
    ready to bare the budern
    of all he has done
    with an open heart
    and tears determined
    to carry all of the
    pain away

    Lurk, love is not a game it is a powerful instrument. and just like any other power in its purest form it is meant to build, but in the wrong hands it will surely destroy.

    Many feel that ,for a man, sensitivity is a weakness, I have to say I disagree.

    thank you liberty and lonely.
