Writing Outside the Lines – Prompt 40 – Loving You …

Loving You …

All the Complications*

in loving you…

Trying to really love YOU…

Resulted in  me no longer

loving ME …

 

You demand all of me

Sucked up every morsel

of my soul leaving

nothing of me

 

In the end to keep from

losing me…

Losing myself…

I had to no longer love you

So …

I could return to loving me

Find my soul

And …

Find the me I lost in loving

YOU…

    Well put. Can you ever get love from one who swoons over their own image? It’s always in what they do…not in what they say. Talk’s cheap. Believing is costly.
