    Empty Love.

    I love you but I'll never be there when you really need me.
    I love you but your problems never trump mine.
    I love you when I really need you.
    I love you for your jokes but not for your passion.
    This friendship feels like empty love.
    I give I give some more but no return.
    You say you love me but there's nothing behind your words.
    Your love to me feels empty.
    In my eyes action say more than words.
    Show me you care.
    I love you but I don't feel the love back.


    I need your help...
    My friend i could use some of your wisdom...
    Your jokes would be really comforting right now, or hell just your presence...
    My friend...
    In my hour of need your nowhere to be found.
    I don't always expect a return on my investments, but you start to notice when they never come.
    Show me you care.
    I love you but I don't feel the love back.​

    Fill of Love

    You've had your fill of the wrong kind of LOVE

    Here's LOVE to you, FULL of RESPECT

    Because whenever :happens:

    LOVE is certain to make us

    STRONG :weights:

    When it's like that, then one has got to wonder, where is the love? Great expression, poet.

    Loving the overall sentiment expressed. I nonetheless question whether 'Love' can be empty and still be considered 'Love.' ASA

    Wow! Not sure what to say because I can feel the pain in every word dropped in this piece. Not sure if it was your pain or mine but pain is pain just the same. I know all too well about this but stand strong in what you know to be true!

    I feel the pain and love you first. If you're filled with self-love then you'll never have to know empty love.

    Hi BallOfConfusion
    Feeling with understanding
    Indeed the love that we give and show
    sometimes just don't come back
    on the same level. And it sure can
    place a dent in the heart. Awesome flow
    Much love

    Peace~N~Love
