It takes two baby

GO while the getting is good...
and Go before your HEART gets too attached.
Can't you see that you're beginning a relationship that will never last.
How could it fail you boldly say.......
I don't think it will fail in any way.
Truly, it will fail because one of you doesn't have their share of care,
and sooner not later they will walk away.
Are you the one that doesn't care....no silly....
its the other one who's heart is in outer space.
Have you seen any commitment, do they really care,
do both of your hearts share a special place?
The truth is you're not really their ideal and you definately are not soulmates.
I gotta admit that you're "BTN" as in better than nothing, and I've watched you skating by on thin ice while they cruised along on roller skates.
Hey, how about admitting it, the mutual attraction and the chemistry just are not there.
And yes, this is not your imagination, they are only pretending that they care.
Soon enough they will be leaving you as you are standing there wearing your feelings out there on your sleeve.
Yep, they will be gone and you will be standing there all alone as you could ever be,              right out in the open for all your friends and acquaintances to see.
You may agree or disagree, but I say it takes two baby.
Come on, listen to me, don't give so freely to those who don't want to receive.

Now you've done it I can't get the song out of my head.
"It takes two baby, it takes two baby,
just me and you, it takes two."
BE VERY GLAD you can't hear me singing it.
      Nice poem, Paul

Thank you Whiskey for reading and commenting on my write.  Somehow your name makes me thirsty,  but actually my preference is cognac,  and only on special occasions.  Thank you Paul I'm glad you liked this.  Maybe you also had a few experiences with one sided relationships.   James

Denise is right, this would be wonderful
lyric for a ballade. although it would be hard to make the music as good as your poem.

VM you are really sweet and you make me feel good.   Brandy I'm sorry things are not working out for you.  I've went thru this so many times and sometimes you choose this because you are afraid you will be alone.  Anyway we will have lots of friends in our lives, and some lovers, but only a few wives, so most relationships are only learning experiences preparing us for the real thing so enjoy them while they last. Friendships can be heaven sent.   James
