    S.G.W.M. Still Seeks Heart's Desire

    I remember the day he told me he had decided that we were done, and that he no longer felt a romantic love for me because we were "too different" now. It was 2 days after his 33rd birthday.  Though he never said it, I can imagine that he had decided that 33 was an...

    From X To A, Smoldering Spirit.

    Sometimes I feel like falling; like fading into nothing. Sometimes I feel like dying, because the pain is too much for crying. To sleep and never wake again would be a kind gift. For all that I have given, and all that I have felt has been too little too late and never enough...

    Must Remember

    I must remember this - for it is true. I just wish, for once, I could freely give my love to someone and have it accepted and then feel that love returned without reservation or fear.

    Always Bittersweet.

    The world is complicated and the people live in this fast moving world. Finding someone is easy but finding the person you want to love and live is harder for sure. Love doesn't just lay there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; re-made all the time, made new - so...
