I'm a wanderer, a nomad...I do
James.....I totally agree with you. There have been many a times I fell in love only to not have it returned. But in all actuality, this poem is about someone who first told this person they loved them, and showed them, just to fall out of love with them, but not have the guts to tell them that they had. So they just end up fooling this poor soul into thinking they still love them (or so they thought), which just ended up hurting this person more than if they'd let them go....it's very complicated.LOL...but then again, love is like that!
