today I thought of him again, I wonder why I cannot forget, why I cannot let loose of the love that I felt when I was with him. I truly believed that what we shared was pure and truthful, what a fool I was, what a fool I am

there are those who make the day trip through my thoughts, they come to see or feel my tears, my heartaches and my joys, they come to see inside of me, they hide behind the screen of anonymity while delving deep into my soul. There are times I think I shall no longer take the time to write down the emotions that roll like the tide inside of me, to become even more hidden, faceless and gone from what I am already, and then I remember the reason for my thoughts, and realize the need I have to write them, and the reminders that they have served over all the years I have expressed them in this format. I often ponder the thought of why someone would come to read my thoughts, to look for the next entry. is it for self exploration or maybe something more?

they say there are 5 senses to our being, that of sight, sound, taste, smell, and feeling, our head often can understand each of these senses, but yet what about what the heart senses, it does not see but yet it is the eyes to the soul. It does not hear but yet it is where the music in our life lives. It does not taste but yet it devours all that it is fed. It does no have the sense of smell, still it knows the difference between the sweetness and the rancid odors of life. It does not feel in the sense that feeling is by touch, if does however feel, But how? My thought to ponder today.

If I were to cross the line of who I have been
into the future of what I may be
and I spoke the words, from deep within
would you accept me as I am

Please remember what once was
then forget the past
bring nothing into our future
allow us a new path
guiding me as I guide you
learning anew
