What I live

how many times

must i be told

'i don't wanna relationship now'

'i just want to be real good friends'

it's like i'm eighteen all over again

don't they understand, that a friendship is a relationship

but, i get the point completely

they want to think better of themselves

like they are a true friend

in reality they just want to

take and take from me

without consequence or commitment

i never really said i wanted

someone's heart  out loud

do they sense my lonliness

my need for love

or just desperation to connect

on more than a physical level

love scares me so

could i even let someone

in my heart

if i was loved

could i return that love

so tired of being shut down

i have so much more to give

disgusted with this rejection

feeling used, what i live.

    Dont give up. If they treat you this way and are shorthanding you of true love, then walk away. True love is certain. If your not certain, then it isnt true love and will leave you dissapointed. Stay strong and hold your pride!
