    This love thang.
    Totally unpredictable
    volatile, lethal, necessary
    madness.
    Sometimes sadness.
    Plenty of joy and pain.
    Found myself asking about
    this "LOVE THANG!".

    Even though my years are
    long, I have loved long and
    strong. I still cannot phathom
    or even imagine what lies
    at the root of this boom,boom
    shake the room, heart thumpin
    butterfly jumpin feelin that makes
    you cry and sang.
    Found myself asking about this
    "Love Thang!"

    Did you love me stronger when you
    wore your hair longer, no grey mixed
    in...no natty bush at your chin.
    When time was our friend and not
    our enemy, and I lusted you and you
    lusted me, trusted me, can it be.
    Found
    Myself
    asking
    about this
    LOVE THANG!

    And now every thought of you , bad
    memories too, cannot erase the look
    on your face. No more tears, bitter
    years, still feel love, "What were we
    thinking of?" Got me feeling that swang.
    Can we rearrange or even change , do
    we even want things to stay the same?
    Taxing my brain, still in refrain, night's
    whisper your name.
    Found myself asking
    my-SELF?
    about this love thang?

    Thank you ladies!

    Find myself re-evaluating alot during this transitional time in my life. It seems when you finally have that career and other things that you have been working for...the man either doesn't fit or
    doesn't exist! Got me to thinking about this "Love Thang".
    Thanks for reading!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
