Love is the biggest game of pretense. We all believe, vainly, that it will be returned. When it isn't you get this.

Amour Propre 


Not all truth is white. 

You witness what isn't. 

Some facts are black 

and believe like I do. 


No areas of gray 

can be found. 

When you don't consider 

the possibilities. 


Love and pride 

end your list. 

Family, career, and, money 

are more essential to you. 


Sense of self 

is dropped. 

You're wrapped up 

in what comes first. 


No more 

needs to be said. 

Well, maybe except. 

I love your...
