For the love of my life

I saw you yesterday. You were looking better than ever. And oh, how good you smelled. I could only say hi for a second. You have a mystical power over me. You draw me in like a moth to a flame. I get lost in your beauty, your smell and your strength. So, I had to be fast or I would be putty in your hands.

I remember when we met. It was Autumn 1997. 11 years, it's been! It was love at first sight. You took my breath away. I get tingly just thinking about it. It was a magical moment.

I have to stay away right now 'cause you've done me wrong. You drain me emotionally and financially. And you do it on purpose. You know how weak I am. I can't resist you. You are sooooo selfish! Always take, take, take!!! What about my needs?

Don't cry. We'll be together again. Someday. Under controlled circumstances.

I'll bet Nat can't do that! But I'm sure you will be together again.

Sally, I'm crushed. The Target is a girls best friend, a place of surprise and comfort. You can still go in and just visit, you don't have to buy anything.
You are a strong woman, I could NEVER go through with it.

A heartbreaking tale of true love. It was riveting, moving and inspiring.

And all I can say is this: It's hard to let go of the love of your life. Darn near impossible.

I commend you on your strength and ability to endure. I'm pretty sure if I were faced with that situation I would be too weak to let go.

Sally and Target, sitting in a tree.
K - I - S - S
I - I - N - G
First comes love...
Then comes marriage...
Then come the four-thousand pound credit card bill in the bay carriage


Impossible indeed.

(evidently, I can't spell. Oh, well. Your American-style English isn't my first tongue anyway.)

ha ha. What is it with Target?...their return policy is outragious and even after yelling (and you know I don't usually do that) and still not being able to return something without a receipt because it is $2 over their limit...I still end up buying something that I don't need the same day at the same Target?! What the heck?! I am addicted to your same love!
