    I kept asking him Why? The answer never came. However it became apparent my healing would have to come from within.


    You ventured with anot(her)
    I too naive?
    Too in love?
    To see what were obvious signs

    Me~in your absence
    mistaken you~hard at work
    for us~our future

    You ventured with anot(her)
    taking from me
    taking from us
    giving to anot(her)

    I deserve more
    I deserve better

    Please leave....

    So I may cry my river of fears
    an ocean of tears

    Me~I drained my river
    filled my ocean with something other than
    tears

    overcame my fears

    made a better day for me, than yesterday

    You ventured with anot(her)
    I asked you to leave
    I forgave
    I remember
    I reclaimed
    I'm OK.

    aaahhhhH....

    i see...i see.
    it was HE
    who threw thorns
    and thistles
    in the mist of
    what was...

    it was HE
    who threw correctness
    out the window
    for
    anot{her}
    someone other
    than you.

    it was HE
    who played
    the PLAYA game
    and got played
    coz he didn't know what to do

    it was HE
    who said
    "i'm sorry.
    i made a mistake.
    may i have a second chance."
    after he did the mating dance
    with anot{her}

    hmmm.

    Most of the time the answers are there right in front of our faces. It is we who refused to recognize it.
