It Isn't All Hearts & Flowers 

Valentine's Day, and everyone expects hearts and flowers, and cards that shout "I love you."     But we have something unique, something non-conventional, something deeper, and stronger.     I'm not one to trust too early or too easily, or to let someone in too close, but you were different.     With all of our shared secrets, and all those long talks, all those late nights, we knew each other . . . intimately -- it wasn't just physical; it was emotional, psychological, spiritual, deep into the soul.     The days turned to weeks, which turned into months, which turned into years -- the connection became a part of life, as much a part of our very existence as breathing, or sleeping, or merely being.     How could I have known that those words that you so easily uttered were filled with lies?

Those deep-brown puppy dog eyes and that unassuming shy demeanor were just an act -- an act perfected by years of practice at lying and cheating with little boy charms and cautious flirtations.     Do you even know how to tell the truth?     Do you know the difference between true emotion and a line used to get what you want?     Do you even have the capacity to experience real emotion?     The words that meant so much quickly meant absolutely nothing when it became obvious that you merely tossed those words around freely without forethought or emotion to any and everyone that you were trading epithelials with in whatever situation you managed to arrange.     What good is an "I love you" if you say it to anyone that you happen to be swapping bodily fluids with if there is no soul connection?     Then, it is only cheap words that mean nothing.

Now that responsibility is staring you in the face, are you still going to try to avoid it?     This is the ideal time for you to be a man, to accept what life has given you, take control of your actions, "step-up-to-the-plate" and get your life together.     You can't continue to live the way you've been living -- or, should I say, barely existing.     You have more than yourself to think about now.     Suddenly, for the first time in many years, it isn't just all about you.     Although, I don't think you'll change, and because of that, you have already set the wheels in motion for the outcome of this situation.     I don't think you can give up your habits, hobbies, cheating and lying.     So it will be up to me to make the most ultimate sacrifice in this situation for the best interest of everyone involved.     Once again, it comes down to me surrendering to protect you.     But, the other party should be very happy with the news once I set the wheels in motion from my perspective . . .

So, I guess all that's left to say is . . . Happy Valentine's Day!

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
