I Want More of Him

Updated on July 15, 2012

I want more of him

But he wants less of me

So although it hurts like hell

It's time to set him free

I will not change the girl I am

Just to be the girl he needs

It would be like trying to grow pumpkins

From watermelon seeds

We had amazing moments

At times our love was strong

But rubber bands eventually snap

If you stretch them out too long

So it's time our paths diverge

I'll leave with dignity and grace

And wish him only happiness

With the girl that takes my place

      Short, sweet and to the point. Often it's better to just let go.

      Voted up awesome! That's the right attitude. As women, it is in our DNA to give because we are nurturers and this is the way we were conditioned to show love, but there comes a time that we must pull back if we are doing all the giving and not receiving. In other words, the less you give, the more you will receive.

      Sounds like somebody's been over the mountains and through the mill. Humorous touch there, what with pumpkin seeds and rubber bands. We can't be anybody else than we are, and it's no use trying to be.
