    the obstacles it self is hard to maintain.

    you tell your self I can do it I can and when others see you doing well they knock you down as if you were bowling pins.. but giving up isn't the answer to the problem it's how you face it.. be strong

    I Love, Love

    I LOVE LOVE by thatguy1970 I love, love and it would seem That not a moment could possibly pass Without finding me in a wakeful dream, Of salacious thoughts deep and vast. I love, love and sense its lure, Each time she stirs my lust For the object of my wanting, sweet and pure...

    and anyone else who suffers from a physical disability or mental illness. "I’m really not feeling that great, Every day I have no idea of my fate. I try to embrace all that I have in my life, Through whatever is to be my strife. But the pains in my brain, No one can see...

    You reach inside me, Having torn me open,

    You did so without a single touch, My dreams you explored to gain deaths clutch, You may have choked me with your hands but suffer I under your spell, You suffocated with words of discard You tore me open... Crushed without a single touch a heart I gave freely

    After you choose your person

    and if they reciprocate with love, Pain becomes a certainty, For all if us test the stay factor Because all of us are terrified. We don't want anyone to take our hearts for a test drive, but it happens. Dont worry, there's another buyer, your value has not faded.
