I want to love
I want to feel
but for me, feeling,
is not real.

The more I try, the deeper I fall
not in love
but face first into a wall.

I live, I breathe,
so I must have a heart.
if you can find it...

...it's yours.

Smiley, did you write this?

That's a great poem. The words "I live, I breathe" stuck out to me. Check out the song "Not Pretty Enough" by Kasey Chambers if you get a chance.

Every time I try to come to Live Happy it freezes my firefox instantly over the past 3 days :( Ever heard of this??

What version Firefox are you using? I'm using release and haven't had any problems. Are you running XP or Vista also? Only other thing I could think of is some add-ons may need to be installed.

meg - I have firefox too, but no problems.

laura - that poem is beautiful and painful. it's become one of my favorites, right up there with e.e. cummings.

Just FYI: When I open your blog with this recent post through Firefox, it hangs my session. I am having to access this through Safari. That said...

Here's my comment:

Your heart is huge and warm; you're magical and wonderful and magnetic, and your giving is far superior than the average person. I know a LOT of people, and I have never met anyone like you. And you should know me well enough to know that I don't blow smoke.

You're wonderful.
