The War Of Love

Love is for the desperate for the weak, those who canít live on their own
I can survive all I need is me I whisper, Iíll go on
How is it everyone needs this feeling no matter how rich or how poor
This thing we call love a never ending war
In the beginning its fun, its new having someone to get to know
Although I contemplate can I ever let the real me show
You see Iíve been dinged, damaged, severely dented and hurt
I need a new outlook on relationships to believe again they can work
It doesnít matter what you have, what you make or what you do
What matters the most is our love, us that you love me true
You see I donít need someone to take care of me or a baby to raise
What I need is a partner, a best friend, for us to take care of each other all of our days
I donít want you to freak out donít think Iím moving too fast I just think ahead
I think of the good we may have the bad, the arguments the times we do nothing but make love and lay in bed
If I do this again I need to give myself 100 percent one last try
It scares me to give myself to another, again to get hurt to open my heart for disaster, but with you I want to and I canít figure out why
You stumbled in my life right when I was ok with being alone
How much Iím enjoying getting to know shows me I wasnít ok on my own
I can only ask that someone be loyal honest and true
If all the above is met ill love hard give my love absolute irrevocably to you
The older I get I see how being alone is lonely dark road full of sadness and pain
To keep yourself in a shell afraid of chance and hurt is deplorable, unnecessary pain
I pray to god to send me an angel to show me the way
Nothing but silence comes to me day after day
They say love is selfless love is faithful love is kind
But I have seen love is selfish love is hurtful love is blind
You see love isnít a matter of black or white, rather gray
In the final analysis I ask will love ever find itís way
Love is a cruel feeling that affects many of us not just one
Have you considered can it be that when it comes to love we are fighting a war that canít be won
