A Give With No Return

A Give With No Return

A Poem by guy drori

I gave of myself to you

far more than you deserved.

Why I did so

not I know,

--yet surely it was a mistake

for you were not willing to give in return

even half of the love,



and money

I wasted on you.


I would like to give you more,

yet why should I continue crossing lands

for you

if you are not even willing to walk a single mile

for me?
