Lopsided Love


I give you my heart
But you keep ripping it apart
I give you my trust
Yet you treat me so unjust

I long to see you smile
And just gently take my hand and sit awhile
My thoughts and my life I share
But you don’t seem to care
It is so darn unfair!

I should turn my back and walk away
But my love for you forces me to stay
With all this pain
I have nothing to gain

I really should go
But I simply love you so
This abiding love that I feel
Is like magnet drawn to steel

I am a prisoner of love serving time
Waiting, hoping, longing for you to be mine
Will I wait in vain?
Or will the bright sunrays of your love shine again?

I won’t give up is what I’ve decided
Even though this love is so lopsided

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
