To me love is not sex.
Anyone or anything can have sex.
To me Love is everyday,
day to day to day, making it work.

I used to think I could not have sex
unless I was in LOVE.
Now I know, I cannot have a relationship
without being in LOVE.

I'm tired of saying sorry,
when I really mean
how could you hurt me like that?
How dare you to take me for granted.

I'm tired of saying it's my fault
when it really isn't.
I'm tired of saying I understand,
when I don't understand at all.

I'm tired of saying yes,
when I really mean no.
And I'm tired of say hello,
when I really mean good-bye.

Hi Tonya,
This is great. Because you have learned to really love yourself.
That is why you can't have a relationship without being in love.
when we think less of our-selves , we don't feel too great about
who-ever does find us appealing. Then we learn to love ourselves
in the truest way , and now whoever loves us too is joining us
on the positive side of who we ultimately are.
it's really rather beautiful, though , the path may've been arduous.
WE ARRIVED! Life is great and your poem is wonderful!
