Wonderful concept Michael! I loved this ... beautifully written, and the flow is superb as always my deer man. Now I ask you (shuffling feet and looking stupid here) ... do you mean to tell me there actually IS a switch??? And all this time, I just thought my circuits were going squirrely!
Excellent poem, much enjoyed your theme in this!
Best wishes, /Kit

Oh deer .. ya write me heart with this one. i have coined this phrase many times... it does seem as if some people have a switch to just be able to shut off emotions... i always figure it a defense mechanism of some kind.. and while I often think it might be nice to have it when we are really hurting... when i comes down to it...I think I'd rather feel it and then purge it thru poetry... like you have done here with your usual wisdom ... brought to mind a fav song of mine... expressing the same sentiments..... when im feeling this way...it always makes me feel better to hear this song... hugs of understanding sweets ... (and spammy kisses too) jm

It's amazing how you make your face just like a wall how you take your heart and turn it off how I turn my head and lose it all
It's unnerving how just one move puts me by myself there you go just trusting someone else now I know I put us both through hell
I'm not saying there wasn't nothing wrong I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me I'm not saying we ever had the right to hold on I just didn't wanna let it get away from me
But if that's how it's gonna leave straight out from underneath then we'll see who's sorry now If that's how it's gonna stand, when you know you've been depending on the one you're leaving now the one you're leaving out
It's aggravating how you threw me on and you tore me out how your good intentions turn to doubt the way you needed time to sort it out
Tell me is that how it's going to end when you know you've been depending on the one you're leaving now and the one you're leaving out
There it is, uhh no a little to your right, oops, to the left, to the left....no a little higher, oh damn, missed it! I don't know why they don't just put it right next to the panic button!!! Great read 'Deer. Bonnie

Bal Love this but I'm gonna be all mushy here and say you don't want that on-off button really, I've found that those who have one are mean so n so's with no heart and soul...keep your's the way it is, I know it's hard but that buttons really not worth it... Love ya Tracie~ ~HUG~

I KNEW this would be another one that I unerstood completely. I am searching for the same switch. I just wrote in "feelings" about it. How do you do it. Stop loving and wanting someone, so you can move on? I hope you find the switch, you deserve to stop the pain. It doesn't make sense to love one that doesn't love us back. But the heart has no rules, and the switch remains lost at Home Depot.. Sandra PS, I love the way you wrote this, very clever description.

Again, God must have really slipped... For with this switch, I'm not equipped. Unless I rip out heart and brain I know no way to stop the pain But would even a lobotomy Stop this wishing for what can't be?

Mike - this is exactly what my life was a year ago - (much better now that I don't let her come around to turn the switch on!) This spoke loudly to me... I guess it's the relation and the exactness of the feeling you presented. Won't say well-done.. instead, just: Thanks.
Janet - Yeah - cried over that one too.
