Make Me

Folder: 
The Rhythm of Love

When this all began I promised I’d never leave
I told you I would always be there
Now I’m unsure, Starting to believe
Forever is falling out of the air
I want to stay and always love you
I don’t want to do what I think I have to
I don’t want to give it all up now
But now I’m not sure how
I can stay this way not knowing
I can live my life not growing
We’re stuck in a rut
But I’m still in love
And I can’t be sure you are too
It feels like you don’t want me with you

I promised forever and I meant just what I said
I’m not a fan of letting this end
I want forever and I’ll fight for this love
But if you don’t want it I’ll just give up
I’ll go forever if you tell me to leave
But I won’t go until you make me

I’m holding on until the bitter end
I won’t let go until there’s nothing to grip
I want to hold you, to make you feel safe
I don’t want a reason to walk away
Be faithful and honest
Loyal and true
Keep giving me your love
And I’ll stay with you

I promised forever and I meant every day
I’ll keep loving if you’ve gone away
I want forever and I’ll fight for you love
But if you don’t want me, I’ll have to give up
I’ll hit the highway and set your heart free
But I won’t go until you make me

Make me a promise
Make me believe
Please just be honest
Don’t hold out on me
Give me your trust
And give me your love
Show me you never
Want me to give up

I promised forever my mind hasn’t changed
I’ll keep on loving til my dying day
I want forever, I’m fighting for you
But if you don’t want me, then tell me the truth
I’m gone in a moment if you say to leave
But I won’t go until you make me

I’m all in and I hope you are too
I’ll stick around for as long as you do
I want forever, and I want it with you
But I’m not so sure that you want me too
I’ll give it all up if you make me leave
But I won’t go until you make me

I’ll never go unless you make me

Patience

Is my strongest virtue, unless you consider sarcasm a virtue :)
Thank you SS. I'm glad you like and can relate.

Sarcasm is a very 'special'

Sarcasm is a very 'special' gift dear one. With great sarcasm comes great responsibility! ;)

tell me your secrets, i'll

tell me your secrets,

i'll tell you mine,

don't imagine division,

our love is just fine,

you claim that you trust,

but it's so hard to see,

when theres so many people 

that block your eyes to me,

never fear losing 

as feeling will mend,

i'm not just any lover,

nor just any friend,

our love has been woven 

years ago in the stars,

never fret my love,

nothing can touch this...it's ours.

 

~love it, but tell me, just what must a girl do??~ to prove her love for you, Mr RoC?~ LOL...you want a guarantee? No guarantees... if there were guarantees there would be no tests!~ and if there were no tests...well...what's the big deal about it?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Love is just not all it's cracked up to be sometimes, i think. it's hard as hell sometimes~

 


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

I just want

A girl who chooses to be with me and no one else.
Someone who calls just for the hell of it
Who brags about me to everyone she knows
who trusts me to keep her safe and happy
Who's not afraid to take a risk with me


Is that too much to ask?

who trusts me to keep her

who trusts me to keep her safe and happy
Who's not afraid to take a risk with me


I'm not sure you can have it both ways without a lot of drama, roc. girls want the same thing guys want. security in relationships takes nurturing, and nurturing takes structure. it doesn't come easy all the time, and in fact it doesn't come easy more times than not. you sound like you aren't finished being young yet to me. i could be wrong.

I'm patient

And the first is what i've yet to find
And it's the dealbreaker

Everything else can come with time
But, if she trusts me, it'd feel less like a risk

Well, it's like I told

Well, it's like I told healingwoman one day... 'trust' with what? there are some men who expect a woman to violate moral standards and place herself and her very soul, heart, integrity, on the line for the sake of 'trust'...taking risks is not what men of value allow their true and loyal love to participte in. Men of value are men who would never place love in harms way or allow danger or even a chance of it to a true love's honor. There are those women, much like you describe you want, who do not bend for this type of 'trust' and why there are so few. Men snatch them up like precious gems found on the shoreline...to treasure as they should be treasured and cared for.

 

My fiance' bought me a t shirt with the words...'a good girl is hard to find'...alas he was lucky, as he did not have to search for me. we found each other through the the stars one night...me at home on my computer...him in the darkest of dark places, reaching out into the universe. 

 

good luck. ~peace~

As you can probably tell

From most of my writing, i value and treasure every moment, and that I've compromised and been wronged repeatedly. In all honest, i just want someone i xan trust. And by risk, i only mean take a chance and see where we could go. A little loyalty would be nice, the fidelity kind, that is. I may be a bit puritanical when it comes to love but i've been overly flexible in the past, and been burned by it... so i want someone won't compromise herself or expect me to.


I want you to trust
With your eyes
To know that everytime you see me, I'm thinking of you


I want you to trust
With your heart
And know that I breathe between its beats


I want you to trust
With your hands
That you can feel the temperature rise with every touch

I want you to trust
With your ears
Knowing that every word I speak is true

I want you to trust
With experience
And give me the time to make memories you can believe in


I want you to trust
With your soul
To know that I'll keep every moment close


And trust
That I'll never leave you alone
You're with me everywhere I go
And if nothing else, I want you to know
That I'll still love you as we grow old


Young, maybe. But that just means the right girl for me is too, right?

Yes.....

I think you find this woman one day, RoC. I really do. 

 

Love the poem...very heartfelt...*swoon*...there is a lucky girl out there gonna snag you up, boy. Just enjoy your single life now, because there is a lot of enjoyment without being in a relationship that helps your relationship once you find the right person. I don't mean date everyone you can either, I mean ENJOY being YOU. 

 

The loyalty is the biggest thing to have as a base, so you are on the right track.

I'm a bit

Older than i may seem. My days of frivolity are well behind me. And even they weren't all that frivolous
