The hardest thing to do is to love fully and not be loved in return.


They say love lost
grows the heart.
Maybe that is for those
who are trying to love.

Iíve loved another
like no other,
and my heart is bleeding
like never before.

Our love was perfectó
for me, but not for her;
I wanted what I had,
but she wanted more.

As I try to say goodbye,
my heart only bleeds more;
I am lonely and sad
in this heartfelt darkness.

Will I ever love
and be loved the same?
Or is true love just a torch
we pass on to others?

The Prosperity Zone

Indeed... to Love and yet not to be loved in return...or to be loved just to a degree... Is it because we all need to love with an unconditional love thereby NOT expecting the complete package...hmmm..this is why I am obssessed by the Twin Flame concept..a perfect Love with all the trimmings..that does not mean without the just means with ALL the trimmings...
nice write William
