You constantly tell me how I feel...
you measure my actions,
as though your perception were real ...

What gives you the right,
to read my mind,
to search through my soul...
and throw out what you find...

Seems like a contest
of who loves who more...
but is there a way
to actually keep score...

I don't think my love
fits into your box...
see it can't be confined,
only unlocked ...

So, stop for a minute,
stop trying to define it
there's much more to my love,
than you seem to acknowledge...

I'll tell you a secret
you may have forgotten...

Love can't be measured,
it can't be bought...
but can be forsaken
and so easily lost...

If you're willing to accept it
for what it stands for...
Why can't you stop looking back
to see if there's more...

Yeah, that feeling of "what else do you want"...and not being able to find what else to give....

Good message, ac. People only remain satisfied for a little while. Then they want more. We should be happy with what we've got and anything extra that might come along would be a wonderful surprise. Well written, my friend
