    Constant recanting to restate and reorganize
    statements not meant to reconstruct your
    "positive" self image
    has got me reeling in a vacuum
    getting sucked................
    .....................of all my vitality
    by dealing with this Bull*** reality
    I'm tired...I'm tired
    The chosen ignorance that got you
    thinking - I'd hurt you - purposely
    has got me running got me running
    it's quite stunning how you chose to
    misconstrue the words I use and
    denounce defy and deny my apologies
    to you.......when I inadvertently
    injured an already known insecurity -
    but, I didn't don those words in the clothes
    you thought I donned them in
    but then again what's your motive
    to actually think I'd hurt you as if
    that's my M.O.?
    I'm starting to recognize the signs read
    between the lines and understand that
    YOU and I are
    ......................running out of time
    running out of TIME
    because the trivial is winning
    ............the
    ................trivial
    .........................is
    .............................winning.
    the
    trivial
    has
    won.

    <<<< this is me shakin' my head... you're amazing...

    VERB...

    i read this one 3Xs before i could
    formulate a response... not because
    i didn't understand what you were
    sayin'... but because i could completely
    relate to your words...

    AlwaysLove...

    Blak~

    Just as GA, I too, had to
    read this piece a few times.
    Definitely a must read~like
    "Vitamins for my mind"...

    When you've grown weary from the
    monotony of others -
    let me know!!
    (permita de mi sepa!!)
    Joy cometh in the mornin' :)

    oooh... I like this... I agree, it can be very tiring when you deal with someone who has "walls" up... or has'nt dealt with their "issues". Great piece bro...
