    I will never understand how you can treat something/someone so badly that you cannot live without? Never.


    It must be your skin I’m sinking in
    It must be for real ’cause now I can feel

    And I didn’t mind
    It’s not my kind
    It’s not my time to wonder why

    Everything’s gone white
    And everything’s gray
    Now you’re here now you’re away
    I don’t want this
    Remember that

    I’ll never forget where you’re at
    Don’t let the days go by


    I’m never alone
    I’m alone all the time
    Are you at one or do you lie?
    We live in a wheel
    Where everyone steals
    But when we rise it’s like strawberry fields

    If I treated you bad
    You bruised my face
    Couldn’t love you more
    You got a beautiful taste

    Don’t let the days go by

    Could have been easier on you
    I couldn’t change though I wanted to
    Should have been easier by three
    Our old friend fear and you and me


    Don’t let the days go by


    Black moon white again
    Black moon white again
    And she falls around me

    I needed you more
    When we wanted us less

    I could not kiss just regress
    It might just be
    Clear simple and plain
    Well, that’s just fine
    That’s just one of my names

    Don’t let the days go by
    Could’ve been easier on you, you, you

      Fear. Oh it can be easy to sum things up how the other person feels and think that answer is ridiculous… but it’s fear. I know because I’ve had it done to me and I’ve done it to them. It happens because somewhere or sometime, something happened to the fearful. It hurt them and left a scar.

      @ I know why . . .I understand what you are saying. Everything leads back to fear. However, after knowing each other for 10 years, and have had every conversation possible, I would have thought that something would override self preservation.

      Well, I’m like you in my position so I can’t explain your person except maybe the answer is it’s just an excuse.

      @ I know why, I do believe you are correct. There has always been an excuse for everything. No accountability, responsibility, loyalty, in fact, he was quite the parasite. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

      No problem. I hate the buzz word toxic, but sometimes it applies. I have learned that it’s OK to try with someone (trying can mean just platonically or more) but to stay put and let someone “feed” on you doesn’t help you or even them really. They just know they are allowed to feed. The trick is to be strong enough to know when something has run its course and not look back. It’s hard after years of a bond. I’m still learning. But sometimes the only looking back that benefits us is to realize they aren’t a positive thing in your life anymore, learn from experience, and be around those who can mutually fulfill needs. Just my opinion and experience.
