    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Take this kiss upon the brow!

    And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow — You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream...

    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 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...
