I want to find love
In the past I thought
I truly had
How wrong I was

I don't know what
I am doing wrong
It must be something
Sometimes I feel
like it's just me

I start having feelings
for a special guy
I start to trust and
love him with all
my heart

Then both my heart
and my trust are broken
Thrown away like
everyday trash
Something to be spit upon

I want to find love
but maybe it is not
in the cards for me
Maybe I am meant
to be alone

Why can't I find love
Find that special someone
to spend my life with
Maybe it is me
scaring love away

Forever alone I will
always be

Many times we try much to hard to show our "love," Angel. I know I sure have. Maybe just relax and let the affair grow on its on without so much feely touchy, and maybe lighten up on the "I love you." If it is a real love affair it will certainly "take," if not . . . Well, you know what will happen.

Ah, you remind me of me. You give your love too quick before they have earned it, same way with trust. Everyone wants to be loved, but to find the right love takes time and being picky. Don't settle for anyone who thinks you are anything less than wonderful. So don't go begging for love, go shopping for love. In the meantime love yourself and find your confidence again. Real love is worth waiting for. ~L

Don't shop for, hunt, or seek love at all! Have fun, enjoy yourself, don't be over zealous with your feelings, emotions - don't try to create love! Let it happen. If it's there it'll announce itself - then and only then can you determine if its real or short-term.

Let love find you - - - not the other way around. And for goodness sakes - Don't rush it just for the sake of "wanting Love"! That's a course to disaster.

Once you've found it - nourish it, feed it,
give it reason to love you too. But don't overwhelm it with slobber, leave it always slightly wanting, but confident in it's grasp on you.
