The way it is is the way it is
I had a one night stand a
month ago and found out
last night I was exposed to
the HIV virus



Consider the way
You didn't consider
Consider my shoulders

The weight you've put there

Considering feelings
Consider mine first
Consider the tears
The ones I must cry

All things considered
Let's consider the worst
Cavemom is on a mission for
true love and happiness not
only receiving but also in
giving. She figures there is so
much to learn why not start now.
She knows about the love note
Cavedad got from Baitshopgirl.
So far he hasn't mentioned it.


This is not the worst
It's your heart that you must
Shed the tears lose the weight
Or wallow in your sorrow

The weighton your shoulders
Only you have put it there
It's drama you created
And only yours to bear

You alone hurt yourself
You tattoo blame on me
Begin the healing process
Your life is yours to claim


What's the point in healing
to only hurt again?


How dramatic
How contrived
How cliche
It sounds

There is no love in pity
Or in sympathy

I don't want your pity
Don't deny me love

I don't want your sorrow
Don't deny me love

I'll deny you nothing
It's how I will love you

No more acting actor
Willing to pretend

Cavemoms wish for Cavedad
is that he pursues his own
dreams and heartfelt wishes.
She does not want him to stay
with her out of pity. The exposure
she had to HIV should not change
and cannot change what is in his
