Me Being Me

I know that I'm intense and sometimes I can be dark. 
I'm adventurous by nature, and always ready to embark.

If your senses elevate, I do not mean to be a tease.
My mind stays stimulated, so I feel the need to please.

I'm not angry or sadistic, and this you need to know.
Sometimes I'm masochistic but my bruises never show.

I am by no means lonely - to the point I sit and cry,
but I am only human so I might let out a sigh.

I use to be quite selfish, and would tend to go astray.
I broke up with some lovely girls who loved me anyway. 

There was a girl, God only knows my love for her was strong.
I left her for a good reason, but my method was so wrong.

Eyes of blue you haunt me; tiny dancer in my bar. 
Why did I let you leave intoxicated in your car?

I did not mean to go there; why I did I'm not quite sure.
Perhaps my mind is mending and my heart is still with her.

As far as what I want to do despite the things I've done?
Would be to share my lessons earned; no cost to everyone!

    Hopefully we do learn from our mistakes. The price is right to learn from you. All wounds heal in the end. Good luck and keep writing. Yours Matthew Anish

    Very introspective and soul searching, my friend. How many regrets we can bear-but it's also the past. May our futures be much brighter. Keep sharing your heart, Sara:)

    This is so touching and sad yet helps one to better know the depth of the soul of the writer. You have a way with words and the revelation here is that you have the strength to continue on and help others to not suffer the pains you have endured. Lots of Smiles from Lena (friends are indeed a light in our soul, guiiding us gently through life with love)

    Ivy, you being you is the best person to be. That being said, you cannot or rather should never live with regrets but as you said, learn from them to be able to share the lessons as well. Excellent flow to this write and a very good write it is. My best to you ~ Michael

    Sometimes in life we make mistakes that hurt deeply - I commend you for sharing your story in hopes of helping others not make the same mistakes -
