All Or Nothing?

Give me all or nothing
you said;
all of you to me
or give me nothing at all.

So, I gave you
all of my heart,
all of my being,
all of my love,
everything I could.

Then you threw it all away
and left me
with nothing.

Hoot makes me think of the old saying
"Better to have loved and lost then to have never lovd at all"
Mistakes only exist if we have not learned from them..

Very nicely done, Hoot. And of course you know why we do it. It's that 'All' we expect in return that gets us.

------------------
I look forward to tomorrow, while looking back on the past. But today is the day I am living. And I expect it to be a great day!

Good one Hoot! Sad ending. Though it certainly seems just as you write. We give all of us, and end up with nothing! Well said my friend! HUGS

So true ...so sad

Very nice work Ruth. Heartfelt and cause we've all been there, you're not alone
