Jotting...On, Of, For and To

It seems sort of funny now.
There was a time I didn’t love you.
But then, I didn’t know you.
-——————————————————-

Shakespeare once wrote,
“Parting is such sweet sorrow”
He must have been a masochist because
there is nothing sweet about your being gone.

-——————————————————-

Confession is said to be good for the soul.
I must confess, it feels so good to love you.

-———————————————————

Please wait until it’s time to leave before you say goodbye.

-———————————————————

If you leave, you must share responsibility for my insanity.

-———————————————————

I never wanted to fall in love with you and I didn’t want you
to fall in love with me.

I didn’t want to hurt you either.
So I suppose I already love you and didn’t want to admit it.

Now I proclaim it to the world and all the universe
if they want to listen.

-———————————————————

Have you ever wondered why I love you?

It is because you…

Understand me, tolerate me,
guide me, rely on me, protect me
comfort me, laugh with me.

Most of all, it’s because you love me.

-————————————————

I don’t ask for much.

Only a smile or two, a hand gently touching mine,
a simple word acknowledging my presence.
The warm silence of your company.

Some people spend their life looking for miracles….
I’d be satisfied with one.

-————————————————-

Life is becoming less livable…

With each new person I meet,
I wonder if this is the day fate has chosen
for love,,,

Or is fate what I’ve chosen to help me
through the day.

-————————————————-

Loving is the most creative force in the universe…
The memory of loving is the most destructive.

-—————————————————

By accepting and revealing myself to you, I can
help you accept yourself.

Afraid of fear of ridicule and shame,
I hesitate for you may not like who I am…
and I’m all I have.

-—————————————————

Friendship and Love are much the same.
With both, you have freedom.

-—————————————————-

I love, I hate, I feel, I honor, I fear, I judge, I value, I desire.

I am human….I am Me.

-—————————————————-

Since you have gone, I fear I will run out of poems
before I run out of pain.

-—————————————————

Don’t bet your todays
on tomorrow….
It’s a bad bet.

-—————————————————

Some people love you….
some….destroy.

-————————————————-

Dependence makes you
vulnerable to hurt…
But isn’t that human?

-————————————————-

Perhaps one day,
I’ll look back
and thank you
for the pain I feel

-———————————————-

I will show strength
as I walk away.

-———————————————-

I’m afraid to let go…
and afraid to hold on.
