To take and give nothing
is a selfish thing to do,
To love without sharing
is to love only you,

To listen without hearing
is what makes you cold,
To speaking without caring
is what makes you bold,

To open your heart for one
is to close it on another,
To give only half of you
is to leave a love uncovered,

To take more than you need
leaving nothing but a shell,
is to someday give me pleasure
knowing that your soul will rest
In Hell.

I don't think I was quite expecting an end like that. Hurt really flows from this.
Very well done, says a lot

There's only two ways you can go...
One way you can save your riches,
And the other will save your soul.

Thank you for the replies.
And about the ending,it was one that I had not expected either.
Just another one of life`s downfalls that we all seem to endure.
