    (just a tad upset cuz...)

    I don't want her to hurt anymore
    she sheds tears that no one hears...ever

    the muhfuggin "takers" make too much
    GoTdayum "gimme" noise to even notice
    she is screaming for quiet...
    for peace...for understanding...
    for love

    life is not kind
    especially for those
    who love to give

    we are nothing alike...see,

    & she exemplifies
    beauty, humility, open-ness
    & her spirit lives to love

    but she remains un-cherished
    in that special way

    I wish my love could be enough
    I wish my words could soothe
    & sustain her for longer than
    a 3~ hour phone conversation...

    I wish my mental hugs across the
    miles could satisfy...

    she shouldn't cry those tears alone

    & there's no good reason
    for her heart to ache in broad day light

    it's a crime
    because she knows she
    can literally stand in the
    middle of the street
    at rush hour
    drenched in blood

    and the blind and the vacant
    will gather around her like the
    walking dead

    they'll bring their raggedy *****
    & come and ask
    for another favor....some more time....
    another chance

    to ignore the love she is

    & abuse
    her tender heart

    sometimes...

    tough love requires us to JUST SAY NO. that's a hard lesson to learn but, in order to find peace, it's a necessity.

    DON'T BE MAD.

    Speak that....

    I KNOW exactly what you speakin bout.

    Baller, it isn't that easy...a soft, fragile heart needing to be hardened and numb to any kind of emoton as a means of keeping everyone out....it is a crime....


    'Lyce write as you and I know it...
    I am personally feelin it...

    So sad, but true...kindness taken advantage of, misused and abused

    Ms. A

    I agree with Kween, it's a shame that a heart so tender is squeezed and squeezed. When that heart needs mending every one turns their backs. Tell your friend to hang tough and stay strong through them 3 hour convos sis.

    Alyce....


    ...this reminds me of someone who is close to me!
    & i don't know if it will help your friend or not... but
    what i told mine is that when you have given to
    others unconditionally & from the heart... & they don't
    appreciate it or just continue to ask for more... it
    has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with YOU! those
    people should not make you change your heart or
    break your spirit... after all they are the ones with the
    problem... THEY should be worrying about changing!!

    you feel me? thanks for sharing this...

    AlwaysLove.
    SunShyne~

    Miss a...
    standing on the outside looking in...you got me right in the heart with this one...from personal experience I know that when a soul/heart/mind goes to a dark place, only that person can bring themself back into the light..and it's a long, hard, painful journey...
    but it's a place where, if you are lucky enough to return from...you bring back with you a lot of valuable life lessons....love this one..just loved it!!..your gentle heart shines through your words...
