Active Voice

Words.

Actions.

These are just words, they are not actions.

Fuck is just a (word?obscenity?exclamation?).

Love is a word. Love is an action.

Some use words to express love. Some show their love by tearing off a piece of their soul to be trampled on and abused.

I can no longer ACT ACT ACT ACT ACT on my feelings, so I fill the empty spaces with WORDS WORDS WORDS WORDS WORDS .

Go ahead, "Take another little piece........"

Love.

Some people use words and actions to suck people in and when emotions get involved well it was simply not part of the package deal. Emotions, huh? What are those??? We have to be pragmatic about relationships nowadays.

AB - Just call me "Slick Nick" ;)

Pam - Yeah, I've been the recepient of that action.

AB - Slick, Nick, Dick, Mick, Bick, Fick. Fick! FICK!

Nancy - Hey, you're hair is getting so long girl. The joy of love of a pet is real, the pain is real when we lose them. Even so, with all the pain, we come back for more. It's all worth it in the end. Love Ya!
