Once was mine

NcONDRA 1981 (Houston)

You're so pretty so pretty to the point everyone on the team would love a turn. But for the here and now you are mine and I am yours. I love you so much, you make me feel as I can do anything and I think the feeling is reciprocated but that's ok. M why weren't you at the game today I needed you? Maybe there is an excuse yeah and excuse, M is always their. Isn't she? Hey M you think you could bring another friend maybe O? Please don't take it the wrong way but you alone don't do it fo me anymore. 4months. M MMMMM WHERE THE F*CK ARE YOU? I CANT GET OUT OF BED. I guess I should've known once I started abusing M the O and D they would have enough and run out on me.
