The Lover or (Poet) in me...
"The Lover (or Poet) is a rare type. (S)He has a rather
contradictory nature. He is completely unselfish and generally regards others
above himself, yet somehow in his effort to please, often ends up doing things
that appear completely self-centered. The Lover loves people and strives for
acceptance, but at the same time withdraws from the world. Lovers are authors,
artists, philosophers, and musicians. They live unorthodox, unconventional, or
even chaotic lives. Lovers experience the highest highs and lowest
... Awesome. So, what do you think? Would you say that describes you?
Kelly said... There are a number of things that strike as 'sooo true'.
unconventional: ya...I wear paperclips for earrings and um...pink tennis shoes.
Many of the things I do often look like they are self serving...perhaps they are...but I do them because I want to help someone. Then we get into the whole idea of helping others for no other reason than to make them happy...but then...that makes me happy...so it benefits me...so where's my motivation? Would I help them if they were my enemy? still the idea...if I help my enemy wouldn't that have the possiblity of turning them into a friend or at least not as much of an enemy.
okay...now I am rambling...

as one of our favorite comedians, emo philips would say, "iiiii'm a good lover...i bet!"
i do believe their are different types of lovers and depending upon the intensity of the loving, will show itself in differing ways - if that makes any sense at all.
perhaps we should call farmer in on this?
I think this definition of "Lover" is the type that puts all the emotion into it...good or bad.
It makes losing a friend rather heart wrenching...not a good thing.
A "poom" that I wrote a while back along these lines:
Rock of my Life
beautiful and dear
holding me up
my heart stays
life crashes in waves around us
never between us
it cannot move us
Forever we remain
On some level...that's sorta deep.
wow....guess that was a "show-stopper."
People got distracted by other posts, I guess.
that's purty, phelonius.
and a spelling correction for me - "there" not "their"! jeesh.
