    this is driving me out of my mind?
    why is life so unfair?
    why is it every man i meet either married,
    only wants one thing or is looking for a man just like me?
    why can’t i find someone to love?
    i know i’m cute. i know i can cook.
    and the lovin’, man i’ve got so much good lovin’
    to give that its running out of my ears
    and every other orifice i posses.
    but these feelings? what do i do with them?
    what do i do with a heart that is so full of love
    that it is rotting, decaying; plagued by loneliness.
    what do i do with the focus of my mind that is
    bounced from sidewalk, to alley, to the brother at
    the next desk over ‘cause it cannot isolate and
    fixate on mr. right? where the hell is he?
    what do i do with breasts that desire a touch
    and hair that desires a tug and love that
    desires love. yes! in all the right places.
    what do i do with these feelings?
    what do i do with my love?

    so many minds wonder
    so many souls lone to have
    inside every single & lonely female
    these things they ask !
    yet da truth told
    yet their heart knoweth of sweet love
    da minds wonder u captured da sadness
    of every lonely woman who wonders

    my favorite lines where
    "what do i do with breasts that desire a touch
    and hair that desires a tug and love that
    desires love. "

    and the end, when you said what do i do with this love

    great work

    I real feel the intensity of this piece, probably because I do remember being there once upon a time. Let time and other pursuits, and strong friendships tyde you over and Mr. Right will find you. I fully agree with Elayne about your insight, it is excellent.
