this has happened to many a man of which i am sure!

how many times have we looked around and saw our dreams torn to the ground?

how many times that we searched for love and not found it there, because the one you loved just did not care? how many times must we feel heartache and pain and our lives will forever change? we walk the BRONX streets with our head hung low, and not knowing which way to go. then you look up and she is standing there with a smile from ear to ear. once again your heart starts to skip a beat, for this is perfection that you meet. you introduce yourself and you start to talk, as you continue, but on a happy walk. there is a connection growing between you two, which is a feeling that you never knew. you start to see each other every day, and you want to be with her night and day. that's when you decide to let her move in as she looks at you with a grin. she says yes, " i think that's cool".now starts the freakin rules! make sure you come home straight from work, and no more hanging out with your friends, all of that now has to end. you start to think - "what is this shit" i never had to do this before, maybe i should just open the door, and let her go on her way and tell her that she cannot stay. but she has something that you lost- your heart that was crushed and tossed. now it becomes another day, another night, where you argue, fuss and fight. but you love each other and can't see eye to eye, no matter how much you try. against you the cards are stacked you see blue and she sees black. yet you know that you will overcome cause your hearts beat as one. just like good and bad and right and wrong, you need each other to become big and strong. there are so many thoughts going thru your head, and losing her is something you dread. who do you turn to and ask for advice when you want this woman to become your wife. the answer is there staring you in the face, who better than your mother who has been doing it for over forty years, she argues with dad, but they have something they share. she tells you " son, when you truely love someone there is nothing you can do but continue this fight that has been put in front of you - is there anything out there that you see that may be better - ride out the storm, it will get better ". now i look at her and i can see, she is the one that compliments me. she is my future, she is my life, she is the one who will be my wife

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
