Do you remember when love was a mutual feeling

between two people but now,

it's more like, if you love me then I'll love you

or you say it first and then I'll say it to you

People categorize love as you do for me and I'll do for you

Tit for tat, if you, then I, you have to, I don't

Whatever happened to your feelings in the whole situation,

oh me, oh my, I sigh

Because whoever said love had to be a routine

and whoever said love had to be an order or an obedient command

Whoever told you that love had to be mean

and whoever told you or anyone else that love is a certain demand

I got lost about the definition of love a long time ago,

besides love to me is not what you say it's an action

that some people just don't know

I used to know love once but I dare not know it now,

it's been so long, I can honestly say that I almost forgot how.......

how to love

This one is sadly penned, Quanda. Born from experience, I can tell you've been hurt too many times: well penned.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
