    you want the truth,
    i love you and all you do
    and make me feel
    as night after night
    you hold me near.
    i nearly choke
    on tears as you
    tell me sweet things
    i need to hear
    the most beautiful
    amazing thing is
    i trust in all you
    say and do.

    let me finish though. . .

    i still speak to T too -
    but our time was over
    before it even began
    friends first, lovers last
    nothing that one sided
    should ever come that fast
    you know its me who calls
    him, can't seem to let go
    I know he wants to hit it
    but what i don't let show
    is how i miss his thug
    hardness and all the
    efforts and airs
    when underneath it all
    he has a heart that
    just might care.

    i'm finished and now you
    have all sorts of things
    to spit and say
    on how and what
    makes me act this way.
    while your analyzing
    my every move,
    i'm wondering why
    i even try when
    it's so blatant
    i'm gonna lose.

    so, at least with T
    i knew where i stood
    his kids came first
    his dedication to the hood
    then his game
    but with you
    all there is is me and you
    with you I am number one
    and I'm number two
    can't handle the quiet
    quite the same
    no children running around
    asking for isht
    no man lounging
    waiting for whatever his fix
    no distractions or actions
    your taking without giving
    never seems to happen

    so, the truth,
    after all this was
    said and done
    i'm scared to death
    i don't want to run
    but
    what if
    you
    decide
    you
    don't want me.

    watzinaname - I hope it works out too, if I stop trying to make him something he is not, maybe it will. if i could stop calling (that would be good too)

    Sweet baby_face - thanks for the love and support.

    sometimes we just have to jump in with both feet
    fear and all...
    and if it doesn't work out
    at least you'll never regret having not tried
    I feel you on this...
    love is a gamble
    sometimes you have to follow your heart
    no matter the outcome
    but I hope it works out for you...

    This was great. As I was readin it I could hear you speaking it(not that I know what your voice sounds like or anything). It's great. I know what you are going through. It's hard dealing with relationships that seem, perfect. Especially when our past ones weren't all that great.
