I wish I knew why I can love someone
like a brother one minute and be in love with him the next

I wish I knew why I could get jealous
over something so small and heís not even mine

I wish I knew why I want to be his best friend
one minute and be his lover the next

I wish I knew why I can tell him anything at all
but at times I canít trust him

I wish I knew why I sit here and wonder why
when I could see the truth if I opened my eyes

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather...not like the passengers screaming in the back of his car.

The truth is not always pretty...but the love and longing is real..

Very much enjoyed...

So many things in life we can question forever, and they never go away. Best to accept it and move on.

You raised some good questions...questions only you can answer. And only you can decide if you can live with the answers. Nobody is perfect and in a long term relationship I don't know how you can manage it without spending sometime wanting to wring their neck (and vice versa) And trust is a choice you make. If you are talking fidelity that is one thing, if you are talking you can't trust him to do the right thing at the grocery store is a whole different ball game.
It isn't always easy, but you have to choose what is best for you, that keeps your mind at peace. ~L
