Waste Love Poem by GREENWOLFE 1962

Waste Love

Rating: 4.9

Don't be afraid to turn me down.
It never has been free.
And I'm prepared to pay the price,
The cost of loving thee.

Rejections are the common dues,
The fees for what I do.
Finding souls who I can love,
And losing ones like you.

Though most lost loves just walk away,
As often as it's done;
I much prefer rejection's sting.
So please, just turn and run.

And don't leave out the parting words,
The ones some always fear.
The ones, somehow devoid of truth;
Which make it oh so clear.

The best of all these parting words,
That I am just a 'bore'.
Is just so bland and insincere,
It's easy to ignore.

And don't forget the crucial thing
So valued here on earth.
The note that says someday I'll find
The girl who knows my worth.

These truly are such mirthful words
I'm bound to go away,
Joyful and content again.
To die, once more, this way.

You know, of course, just who she is.
The one around the bend.
The one that's waiting just for me.
The one that God will send.

The one, that could be anyone.
Just anyone, but you.
The one for whom I yearn this day,
For whom my love is true.

Yes anyone but who you are,
Is suited just for me.
It's only those I've never loved;
Who love me, don't you see.

This, of course, is what you mean.
And that's what brings me joy.
The myraid of reasoned words
Girls use to dump a boy.

So go ahead and turn me down,
Reject my love so true.
I have so much stored up you see;
Waste love, is what I do.

The note that says someday I'll find The girl who knows my worth. ah yes... reading this the words of a good friend of mine (who is not much of a lady) just came to mind... 'Patronising gits! ' (and then in the middle of it - I smiled at something I could relate to) ... It's only those I've never loved; Who love me, don't you see. BRILLIANT poem ;)

I am who still young have not yet exsperienced what you have now just descibed. But this poem does speak to the heart. This is a very good piece, the ryming sceme was perfect, this poem gave me mixed feeling! Good job! I also like how you used words that are sorta childish to the eyes of adults, such as: Dump. Once again good job, I have found nothing wrong with this poem!
