Life is the art of drawing without an eraser ~ John W. Gardner

Love & Need

I love you, hopelessly.
I need you, dearly.
Do not doubt.

With you my heart forever stays.
With you my soul forever bound.
Do not question.

Together we explore.
Together we experience.
Do not fear.

I have not said it enough.
I love you with all my heart.
Do not dread.

I do not show it often.
I need you every moment.
Do not forget.

I pledge my life to you.
I could not survive without you.

Do remember, my love.
I love and need you.

  3. I got no where to post so i hope you dont mind…

    Hidden Truths

    why do people hide
    why do they choose not to tell
    why cant they just say it

    is it so hard
    to tell someone
    the truth,

    blame cultures,
    its part of the culture to
    save face
    thats no excuse

    why do people hide truths
    why do they choose no to tell
    why cant they just say it

    i cant believe its that hard
    just say it
    say the truth

    i will find it more honorable
    to say
    here is the truth,
    rather than to save face.

    why do people hide
    why do they choose not to tell
    why cant they just say it

    I will never know
    but when you encounter me
    do me a favor
    dont save face
