    This is an old piece of min .....I was scrollin down in the archives and I saw something similar to it....

    I woke up this morning
    With a smile on my face
    Today is Feb 14th!
    All my happiness was on my face
    I called your house
    Didn't matter that it was 9 in the mornin
    I didn't care
    Because we were committedly bonin
    But no one answered
    And it was like that throughout the day
    I called your cell, hit up your 2 way
    But no one answered on this day
    I waited Feb 14th...
    I waited by the phone....
    I waited for[ U]your[/U] flowers
    Instead you left me alone
    "Dammit, where are my flowers?"
    Wheres the man who I love?"
    He promised me flowers today
    He swore on God above
    At 8 p.m
    I called your ex
    Lo and behold I heard your voice in the background
    Laughing...wow...too much for me to digest
    I hung up
    I sat in the dark il ten
    Wondering if the tears would ever fall
    From the fool that I had been
    I went to sleep at 3 a.m.
    So mad from what he did
    I know the time b/c im writing it now
    I feel like such a little kid
    I know where my flowers went
    And all this time I thought they were really for me
    my flowers , my flowers
    Right now , Hatred controls me......



    *This was this past Feb 14th...but no worries Im feeling better these days

    :heart:

    NO FLOWERS
    no sugar to cover the salt
    that flows in your womb
    i mean...your wounds
    that leaves you hoping for
    yesterday's chocolates
    and wine
    and a little time
    to get you through the night

    GLAD YOU'RE DOING BETTER.:)

    chin up.
