    I offered you my heart
    And everything that love inhaled.
    I put you on a pet-a-stool
    And treated you like a queen.
    I gave you something
    That I never gave before.
    By giving you a piece of my soul.
    But what did you do with it?
    See, I gave you my life
    And in return you stepped on my heart.
    You hurt me like
    I’ve never been hurt before
    See, I’ve cried and cried
    But now I cry without tears.
    All because I gave you a piece of my soul.
    But love don’t worry,
    I’ll be okay
    Just do me a favor and beware
    Cause someone might do you
    Like you did me
    And I’m sorry to say
    When that happens
    Please, don’t come back
    Crawling to me
    I wish you happiness
    Cause all you where to me
    Was some emotional test
    God Bless,
    And I hope you fix your emotional mess
    And with this ring
    I wish you the best.

    this piece was inspired by my ex-wife.
    Who now is going through the same dilimer with her new husband.

    What goes around...comes around, as the world turns.
    Yet, the wise one, stands against the "Whirl" ...as it turns

    I could feel the ache in this, they say what goes around, comes around.... Yes, you will get past it, but it hurts like the dickens while you're going through it. Potent piece brotha.

    Such a piece make me grip firmly my position concerning love!Love is just a lie;nothing is real!We just live in a fantasy and don't wanna open our eyes!But when one of the two do so...then comes pain,tears and so on.
    Love...you shouldn't be in my life

    re:Soul

    This is an Excellent write. I think a lot of people have been to this level
    and rose above the hurt and pain to Love self. Excellent.

    Thanks for just reading it. It is a blessing when people say possitive things about others. Again Thanks
