It's Time

It’s been a roller coaster ride and it was fun, But the nausea afterwards makes me sick - So I’m done I keep giving you everything and you know how to take, I’ll give you that, But I never get anything back All I wanted was a small part of you to call mine, But you wouldn’t even give me that You made it seem like asking was a crime I still love you, but you are selfish and so my love is not enough anymore I’m moving on and I’m forever closing that door Hoping it will never open again, because I know I’ll find happiness elsewhere, But for now I cannot say when

Selfish people find it hard to share with others, most of all love. I think you made the right decision...true love could be awaiting just round the corner! Regards // paul

All I wanted was a small part of you to call mine. I like that, because it speaks volumes that you wanted him to retain his sense of self. Nicely expressed.

yes well even if someone does not love us back, we don not want to change them we just want that love in return

It s so nicely written, well you see we should try our best but if a person isn t willing to love us back, we shouldn t sacrifice our self respect and eventually get away admitting that we really give our best and no matter who was wrong, lost love always hurts, but not long, you ll eventually find the guy you re lokking for, even better than him

yes that is a mistake most of us make, we want them to love us so badly that we change who we are and then sacrifice ourselves in the process

Renee, guess love that does not understand the language of sacrifice is not love.
