first, just wanted to say this is not current *long deep sigh* but was looking over old poems and found this one from last year, and it helps me to post it to actually know that I have gotten past the pain

To love one another, Till death do us part,
Forsaking all
others…

A life time of love?
A lifetime is a long, so very long time
And what sun shines in purgatory
When the love runs out?

passions meet, vows betrayed,
betrayal undressed for all to see
friendship, trust, respect all blown to pieces
pain blotting out reality, why and how
Something so wonderful has
Turned to utter darkness and despair?

Forsaking all others?
If I care to see another sunrise,
The smile of a child…I must…
But yet I pray it be the death of me.

I don't remember agreeing to this,
Did I prick my finger when I signed my name
for surely we did this in God's name?

Till death do us part?
Does that mean that when your
pain filled eyes finally blankly stare skyward
and your heart beats no more
I shall look to heaven and thank God
For his mercy?

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my last breath to take

Iloveit:..So poignant and heartbreaking...if only we could all return the love that is offered to each of us and that which we give with so much pleasure..

Tears here..HUSG

Lovey: The days may yet seem dark.... but you can look back and see how far you've come... and how many friends you have praying that your last breath is a LONG time in the future! Well done, O&O!

Lovey: You've got that all wrong. *G* It's take a step, look over my shoulder to see where that other O&O is... take a step, notice that she's trying to cut ahead of me in Toe's fan club line, take a step, pick up my handy dandy baseball bat and TH-WHACK!!! Take a step back, check out the carnage, and try to punt the remains far, far away! LOL But just like your hair, you rejuvenate to haunt me once again. *G*
