I think it is better to have loved, than not to have loved at all!

We used to lie awake at night;
make love until the early light,
and I would hear you call my name.
I saw the world through lover's eyes,
and didn't stop to realize;
that you would never love me again.
But to you, it was only a game.

I search to find reality,
and though you're just a memory;
In dreams I see you here by my side.
It seems like only yesterday;
we played the games that lover's play,
I thought we had no secrets to hide.
And we laughed, and we loved and we cried.

I gave you my heart; I gave you my soul.
I gave you my love and you took it all.
You were my life; you were my world.
I gave you my heart but you took it all.

Yes you took it all.

Sad poem, especially when it's true. Games, that's all it was and only in the beginning too. Strange how the games stop, once they marry you, taking ALL you have to give,(except your affection and not even wanting your love) making you do all the compromising and waiting for them to change back (which of course they never do) Being broken hearted is such a terrible emotional pain.
