I Will Not Compete!

Competition – huh! What a waste!
Do you really believe I will compete?
Competition is so adolescent, so immature,
And so very pathetic.
When you care for someone,
They either care for you too, or they don’t.
If they can’t be true to you,
Do not be anything to them.
Love is a two way street.
It is not a racetrack.
When you even allow someone to torture you this way,
You ask for everything you get.
And honey, I’ll never ask you for one thing.
you can have everyone you want and do whatever you like,
But you will not do it with me!
