    Hold me like I am the last person you want in

    your arms. Kiss me like it is gonna be the last kiss you're ever going to taste. Hug me like you want me forever. But most of all......... Love me like I am the one you always dreamed of.

    The Early Train to Chicago I awaken to MSNBC

    every morning at 3:50. At 4 a.m. my cell phone starts its odd dinging, so I have to get out of bed and walk over to the dresser to turn it off. If I'm not in my car by 4:30, all my patients and co-workers are outside in a line waiting for me to open the clinic. So there's not...

    Just a moment. Do you not think it odd I

    allowed you to enter my life and befriend me so easily? It is not like going to the store shopping, and by happenstance finding friendship. A friendship that comes with love? You must agree. One cannot simply pick from a shelve love. Love is quite rare. If children don't count...

    I'm not asking you to let me be a part of your

    life, to think of me every single minute nor to let me feel how your heart beat with mine. Just let me love you dam it!!! and I’ll be fine.

    I almost thought I lost

    that one on ep. I swiped accidentally to another page, and was terrified I couldn't go back & retrieve this one. I used to say being on the radio was better than sex. It's a thrill. It's exhilarating and a complete turn on. So that's where this is going. I am turned on by the...

    Well, since you won't talk to me,

    I don't know how to respond. Living in the fantasy of you and me doesn't work well and leaves me confused. I'm more confused without you though, so it's taking me time to adjust to the new me. My new person which I'm still unsure just who she is. It does concern me that I rely...

    I wanted to tell you something

    before I forget it. I'll never forget it. It is about you in my life, but unfortunately I have forgotten about it at this time. It's one of those heartstrings things and it is a little poetic. I was a walking the ghostly halls at work and it came to me. I will work on...

    I have spent my whole life waiting

    and hoping for someone to come crashing into me, leaving me breathless. I want someone to leave their fingerprints on my skin and to make me feel alive because I have spent so much time barely living. Touch me and leave your marks against me; on my lips and on my hips. I'm...

    I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates,

    or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that...

    Cutest Thing

    I am trying to get some sleep

    but can't help but listen to my music, thinking is she crying for me, the way I cry for her. Will she fight for me the way I have fought for her. Will we laugh together when this is all over. Life has a funny way off kicking us down when we are already rock bottom. it makes...

    Nothing you have not done any thing wrong.

    You are doing every thing right. Every thing is amazing. But it scares me, it took me a long time to stop loving you, to get over you Sometimes I think of how much you hurt me and I wish I could hurt you back. But then I realize I’d just be hurting worse if I hurt you like...

    I dreamt of him again last night.

    It's been 20 years since I've seen him. Unless that brief encounter at the Pizza Parlor was the man I once loved. You think I would know. I was there with my daughter, and he with his wife and children. This is the second dream I've had of him. At least the second I can remember...

    I don't think u can trick anyone.

    Maybe the clown can trick a few, but I believe if a man gets to your heart, he will not find it empty or untrue. Just be you.
