    You said you loved me
    once
    it was along time ago.

    And so, me, being caught in my own righteousness
    Took what you said and left.
    I didn't know then that what you wanted me to do
    Was to delve into you
    And fight for our lost happiness.
    You tried to explain
    But I was too vain
    Caugth my nose in the air
    Stuck so high that not a care
    Could enter me at any time
    Especially not soon.
    **** brotha you left the wounds.
    Being mixed up
    in so many messed up emotions
    I found myself coastin
    Into the arms of many who
    Would never feel the way I once belived that you do
    I mistook lust for love; clung so easily to
    One man after another and another
    Looking for what I once had
    Longing for you so bad
    That I got caught up in my own mess of tangled
    Masses of mangled and strangled
    Hopes and dreams.
    My naivite' making every glitter gleam like gold
    Now I want the old.
    You say to forget all those things you once told me to remember
    Livin' thru january...december...and again
    Wishing for those times when
    A missed understanding could be dealt with.
    Excommunication was a harsh myth
    And every night we shared the same air.
    It's unfortunate for me that you don't
    But I still remember............love.

    I value your thoughts as much as my own!!
    I love this memory, and $$ you are right, it is an
