Love had made mistakes.
More than I care to mention.
So, I didn’t see you coming.

waiting for me to notice
the direction on my compass
pointing right there at you.

I rather like this one. It is short and to the point.
It seems to come as some surprise and a welcome message.
Nice job! ~ Geez.

There is value to commenting and critique, tell us how you feel about our work.
This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place.

Thanks Geez! Appreciate you, and always sharing your comments.
