No Love

No one loves you like you love them.
All I want is a big hug.
All I want is a big bright smile because someone thought about me.
No one loves you like you love them.
All I want is for my body to be caressed with those soft hands.
All I want is a massage without asking on demand.
Any pain? Just ask me what can I do to help.
Nothing major! Just take your hands to do a simple soft rub.
That's all it takes!
No one loves you like you love them.
You give your all because that's how you was taught.
They take advantage because it's what they were taught.
It's where the hurt got there mental thoughts!
Running into that selfish space but, it's too late to turn back.
Just know no one loves you like you love them.
The saying in the Bible Christ died and sacrificed for people to live.
But no one is living how Christ showed love.
I'm selfless, so I know how it feels to be shot down.
Because no one shows you love, how you show it to them.
All I wanted was to just be loved the correct way.
Or should I say the Jesus Christ way!
The reality of it all, a soul gets broken down into pieces.
Drowning in tears of hope that one day that same love comes back in return.
Until, then we sit and wait hoping that boomerang comes back without hate.
Also, hoping it isn't too late!
