    Sorry, It's a Question

    I don't know where to search: in the late 60's I read a Rod McKuen poem in a magazine. I believe the title was simply "Loving", but am not positive. The only lines I remember are " how much safer to want then to need, people don't expect so much from you then' [sic...

    I Always Knew ... Rod Mckuen

       I always knew that you would find me, no clock needed to remind me that it would happen. I planned on it, worked it out hid in plain sight every day knowing you would pass, that way or this, come along, go by, pause in moving to here or somewhere; near or far it did not...

    The best way is to write, fragile screaming tortured soul, withering away deep inside yet alive on paper, hoping yet life fleeting by. Slowly dying. Inside and Out.
