"Just Once"

"Just Once"

what I've learned in life is this
love is really just a game
it's wanting and desire 
but not acting as if 

just once I wish 
I didn't associate love with pain
just once I wish 
love wasn't about playing some head games
just once I wish 
the person I wanted, wanted me too
and it was a possibility
something that could come true

I keep going back and forth 
to whether it's you that I want
I keep going back and forth 
to whether it's me that you want
all the love I've known 
have always been accompanied by hurt
all love that I was shown
always eventually seems to convert

longing into spite
desire fills with pride
causing more heartache and grief
leaving love to subside

no longer do I have the strength 
to forever endure
no longer do I have the will 
as my life's now a blur
of instances and memories 
I wish I could put away
locked in a chest and 
finally left at bay

    In a relationship where true love abounds, remember these words, and it takes two to have true love; love is patient, love is kind, love is not self serving. These are Biblical principals found in the Bible. There is much more to it, and you can find it in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8. Thanks for sharing!

    Great write! But you know, I don't think that is true love; wanting and desiring. If one does not place the other above him/herself one doesn't have love in the first place. And then, there's another problem, is that no one is perfect and that imperfection is evident in all relationships. Love has become a battle. A very nice write, da Bomb, one we can all relate to and very open. Thanks for sharing and thank you for your comments on mine, Caroline.
