I Stayed

Updated on May 27, 2012

I stayed

In love with you,

Even after you left

To the arms of another man.

I stayed

Loyal

Dependable

Ready to stand by you

When you needed me the most.

I stayed through the rough times.

I stayed through the stormy weather.

I stayed because I believed you deserved

To have someone who

Would stay.

So why is it,

No matter how much

I stay right here,

Right in this place I promised you.

I would stay

Forever.

Why is it?

That I'm still here,

And you never once

Tried to come back.

      If you love someone set them free . . . hey that would make a good song!

      LOL. And if they love you, they will come back. Isn't it messed up that you have to open yourself up completely to really know if someone cares.

      In a way yes, however since it is the purpose of every living sentient being in the Universe to give love to our fellow beings and ask nothing in return then it does kind of make sense . . . after all it is their loss not yours!

      Still doesn't stop it from hurting. I'd rather be rejected by bess than the woman I love.

      Oh, beautiful, painful truth! People stay because they choose to - it is not contingent upon what the other person's actions might be under the same circumstances! When their actions differ from ours - we are saddened, even shocked - but, we must realize that they have choices to make as well. In the end - it is as it should be - and one must try to see the beauty of the whole - not the ugliness of one part. The photo is not as graphic as the words, P. Lovely..

      It's hard to let someone go, but it's even harder to find out that person never cared. Still you are right we must look for our own happiness, even when we have taken a real gut punch from cupid.

      This tugged at me emotionally. I can absolutely relate to this. I think it's beautiful that it was put out there so simply and so raw, but it evoked so much emotion from your words.

      It is hard to stand still and feel the cracks.I think it s better to let go. Holding on is believing that there’s only a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future.

      It is better to move on.Life doesnt wait anybody!
