I Want Real Love

I promised myself,
I wouldn't fall for your lies.
But my lips quiver,
And all I can do is cry.

I have no one else,
But myself to blame.
You left me with nothing,
But sadness and shame.

How could I fall,
For someone like you?
I should have known,
It was too good to be true.

So many moments,
I begin to wonder,
How you did it.
My heart is what was plundered.

I've felt this way before,
And it hurts all the same.
It just gets you one step closer to the person,
Who finally makes you lose all the pain.

I want someone,
Who is true and loyal.
I want someone,
Who makes me forget about the pain and turmoil.

I want someone who loves me,
And doesn't just walk away.
I want him to see me for who I am,
I want to make him stay.

I don't want love,
To be one sided.
No longer torn,
Or even divided.

Wow, this is great! I can totally relate to this. I especially loved the line "It just gets you one step closer to the person, who finally makes you lose all the pain." That is SO true! Awesome job, and keep writing!
