    :heart:

    Is it normal, to feel bad for loving someone? Can you actually love someone so much, you feel it's unhealthy---maybe, love them too much?

    Why does it hurt so bad? Why have my eyes turned into leaking buckets of liquid pain? Why do I feel that you don't understand? Have I not been the perfect partner for you? Doesn't the powers that be see my efforts?

    I now see
    Why other's simply
    Place their hearts
    Under lock and key

    Though there's truth
    In the saying, nothing cres heartbreak---
    But more love
    I've simply had enough

    Throwing in the towel
    Unlacing my gloves
    I can find other things
    To take the place of Love

    Love left my lying lifeless
    Worn-out and bruised---
    Tired of trying to learn lessons never taught
    It's a game
    I no longer want to play...

    O' story...as I read this, my heart goes out to you! I want to tell you that its okay to love too much (as long as its not obsessive or anything psychologically disturbing)..because its worse not to love at all...

    its funny how you and I are at standing at cross roads...your dealing with loving too much and me on the otherside I am aching to love somebody and be loved...funny isn't? :D

    now...now
    don't be like dat
    "love did you nothing."
    so, don't blame love for the heartaches of yesterday
    ...and things others say
    when all love did was touch your soul
    created a smile...and filled a hole
    ...a void in your life where others done dug
    now, you blaming their actions on LOVE.

    don't give up.

    loveded the flow.:)
