There comes a time when you give up,
Because you’ve had enough.
Positive thoughts no longer work
And emotions can’t be stuffed.
The heart can only take so much
Until it breaks in two,
And mending is impossible
No matter what you do.
You think they will come around
And be like they once were,
But hurtful actions that they do
Cause heartaches to occur.
Love needs lots of nourishment,
Attention, and respect.
It grows with time and thoughtfulness
And the absence of neglect.
Even when you want to try,
You need to walk away,
Before you lose your dignity,
And self-respect one day.
