Give it back, or Give it away.

Love tears apart the best of us.
It's not a matter for the strong or the weak.
It's a matter of trust.
It's a matter of telling someone you are 
at the mercy of a feeling.
Telling someone they have a piece of your heart,
that they will probably take with them, 
no matter where they go, or who they meet.
No matter how hard you try 
to give back or give it away.

    Stephanie. I think did explain what love was. I said it was a matter of trust, and a matter of telling someone you are at the mercy of a feeling. Just because it's short does not mean it's not well constructed. It's just different. Thanks for your opinion anyways.
