Failed love

Failed love


I loved you from the start

I never thought we would ever part 

I wished you loved me the same way 

Instead i really don't think I'll stay 


You stole my heart I felt I belonged 

You promised me love I could do no wrong 

You catched me and you saved me 

There's so much more I'd love to see


Now I feel I'm in locked up in chains 

I'm on my own my friends are so far away 

I'm for your pleasure and for your demands 

It's not my voice it you commands 


I look into your eyes they feel so cold 

When you are near anxiety will unfold 

You'll walk out that door I'll then feel free

I then break those chains so I can breathe


Give me strength to stand tall

Give me guidance to stop it all

I need a positive reaction 

So now I'll stop and put it into action

    Welcome to MPS, Hayley.
    Love can be beautiful and love can be hard. You said it well, if you are unhappy you have to brake the chains. Well done.

    Love can be many things Hayley, once you break those current chains there will be somebody out there where love will be real for both of you.

    Welcome to MPS.

    Love is a minefield. I remember it making me feel worthless on several occasions. Then I realised that before it all went tits up I had been treated like a king with someone giving them self to me.... so I must have some worth and value.
    It's a painful trek. We all have to travel that road to learn.
