And we mistake love,

We characterize it as something from above,

So we're lost trying to get it to fall on us,

Searching through jealousy, possessiveness, and lust,

Trying to make the external apply, when it's within us,

So far gone and out of ourselves we no longer trust,

It's all about completeness from him, her, we, us,

1 is a whole number, trust,

Single we're complete,

Still, for a place in their life we compete,

With the Ex, the past, the present constantly living in defeat,

Didn't work but we refuse to retreat,

No, we move on attaching ourselves to every compatible we meet,

Different face, different name,

But this person is the same,

Because the lesson has to be replayed,

Until we learn then the game ceases to be played,

You have a choice,

You have a voice,

It ends when we decide to be aware,

When for yourself you decide to care,

When you open your heart and see there's light in there,

And the longer it's ignored the more it'll dim,

No one is worth your light not them, her or him...

As I exist,
In this,
Unknown third eye bliss,
Yesterday's conversations I reminisce,
Needing to be the only one you miss,
As I dream of your love and your kiss,
My hearts Metamorphosis,
Him, mine, me, his,
Clinched like the powerful black fist,
Complete like Jack's bucket list,
Hands on me,
See my soul silently,
Read my need of you and you of me,
Trust the truth of me,
Engulf in the sweetness of my Vee,
And I'll hold you tight like jeans made by Lee,
Blind, my love you can still see,
Set us free,
Just effort showing we're worthy,
Worthy of we,
Place your effort in me,
And I can guarantee,
For your honesty, 

For your investment in my Bee,
Double is the type of return you'll see...
