LOVE ME LIKE YOU MEAN IT



I won’t settle for a life
That’s mediocre
Life’s too short for that

I’ve loved you and 
Given you my heart
And gotten not much back

I’ve waited patiently but
You don’t love me anywhere
As much as I love you

Each day a new disappointment
A reminder that you don’t love me
Half as much as I love you

It hurts but I’m setting you free
All I wanted was for you
To love me like you mean it

It will hurt to live without you
But it hurts more to know 
That you won’t and can’t
Love me like you mean it

Some can never love, as we need. Some never know what love is at all. Some lose it, and some just don't care. Prayers for your days. You are such a wonderful poet. God give you a miraculous life. Ann

This does happen, and the best thing you can do for yourself is to let them go. Nicely done.

For sure ~ the sooner the better. You don't want your soulmate to be crossing your path while you're still "busy" entangled with the wrong person.

Nicely expressed my friend. When you give love and get none in return, it is time to move on. Best wishes in the contest
