No Strings Attached

                                                         :by LadyJo

Yesterday, like Ayanla, I cried
Understanding the realism,
Some thing inside me died
This feeling I thought had subside,
Resurfaced, when this tune replayed in my head

“I wanna be loved Not for who you think I am
Nor what you want me to be could you love me for me?
Real love, with no strings attached, I wanna give you me heart
Don't want to take it back”  Back!... Back!...

I don’t wanna take it back,
So don’t give it back
For me to mend,
Or contend
With the realization
That our love has come to an end
That our Love no longer exists
And the temptation of you
I now need to resist
The need to hear your voice
Or see your face
To hold your hand
Or fall in your embrace

Don’t give it back
The laughter the happiness
Sweet memories and warm caress
All the special qualities you possess
No longer will I have the privilege to admire
When only your heart was all I desired

Don’t give it back
Don’t give back those times
When hello gave butterflies
When faces gleamed with smiles
And sadness arise at the sound of good-byes
When tomorrow seemed so far
When love was made and not war
In this moment -- was all that mattered
Now here I sit shedding tears like rivers
For my heart has been shattered.

Don’t give it back
Please don’t give back
The “I love yous”
Or the sweet Sugar Boos
The names only us two knew
That showed just how much I was into you
While blocking out the world around
Looking into your big brown, eyes
So profound
For your soul was what I saw
Which confused the hell out of me
When from my heart you said you need to withdraw

Don’t give it back
Don’t give back my heart
That you’ve broken into a million pieces
For I know, my love for you, continues to flow
Till this life forever ceases
For your love I won’t return
It was because of you I’ve learn
To be real and unlock the seal
That shields my most precious possession

Why do you want to give it back?
Why choose to turn my blues skies black
Is it something you need that I lack
Or maybe it’s to someone else to whom you now flack
Please don’t give it back
Please don’t put my mind under this attack
For I gave you my heart
With no strings attached

And I don’t want to take it back.
