    :cry: Why Bother?

    Maybe I should just give up on ever falling in love.
    Cuz it seems like it comes from hell and not the heavens above
    Every time I hear thosse 3 words it cuts me like a knife
    Then I sit and wonder if I'll be scarred like that for life
    I fall in love, then I get hurt and all I can do is cry
    And then I have to sit and think, "Why do I even try?"
    But then I remember the way it feels to have someone be all mine
    To love and be loves is such a good feeling it has me on cloud 9
    It makes me sick to think of this cycle: pure bliss straight down to pain
    Then I think about my heart and how its being caused such strain
    So I ask myself, "Why bother with love? Soon it will cause your heart to stop it's beat?"
    But of course, I know the answer, It makes me feel so complete.
    The funny thing is you beg and plead to get the love you want so bad
    But then after it hurts you, all you want to do is give it back
    It hurts so bad you want all your feelings to just go away
    All the while knowing that the love is there to stay
    You try and try to get rid of the feeling but it sticks like white on rice
    But I know you'd better be careful before the pain turns your heart to ice
    I want to say please don't give away your heart, please don't take that fall.
    But then I remember, it's better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all.

    Carameldlite ...Welcome to Destee

    This is a great first flow with us. It's deep and truthful.

    I like how you closed it. " But then I remember, it's better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all. "

    Share your heart. Share your mind it doing so you will find peace.

    To have that loving relationship with someone, it does mean taking a risk. Is it worth the risk? I think so, even though it does hurt when it doesn't work out. Wonderfully posed. Welcome to Destee. Hope to read more from you.
