A poem about Givers and Takers in a relationship.Hope you enjoy! :D

"
Giver

I would give my heart to you,
But you would take it away.

I would give you my life,
but you would just abuse it and through it away.

I would hand you my memories,
You'd take and burn them.

I said I would always stay,
and you told me to leave and go away.

I gave you my everything,
and you just took it all.

I got nothing in return,nothing at all.


Taker

You handed me your heart,
I didn't know where to start,
sO I just took it and tore it apart.
You give me your life,
I took it,
and Kept it.
Gave you nothing in return.
You told me you loved me,
and I nodded ''okay.''
Everything always has to be my way.
You told me everything,
So I took it,
and told the world.
You told me that you'd always stay,
I told you I needed''space.''
So go away!
You gave me your everything,
So I took it and sold it on Ebay.
Anything and everything you gave me,
I took it,and gave you nothing in return.
How badly that must sting,how badly that must burn.
Givers & Takers.

I give you everything,
You give me nothing.

I'd give you anything you wanted,
and you'd just keep it or give it away.

I promised you that I'd always stay,
you nodded and said ''okay.'

I gave you everything..
I got nothing in return.

It was as if you expected me to give you everything,
While you sat back and didn't give me a thing.

I would have taken a bullet for you,
and you just wanted to play with me.

I refused and you got mad.

I walked out and now your sad.

This is the dance of Givers and Takers,
Which one are you?
Find the right match,
or else it'll be hard to choose.

Definitions:

Givers are people who give in a relationship.
Takers are people who take in a relationship.
A healthy relationship has a healthy balance of give and take otherwise your relationship can and will become unhealthy and will be more beneficial for the taker,and the giver will be left in the dust.The taker will always expect more and want more. The Giver will always give more and expect less.


So now I must ask which one are you?

Amazing poem. :) I'm a giver...I felt trodden on and misused in my last relationship with someone, and it hurts to feel so small and unappreciated sometimes when you try to be generous and think you are doing your best to make another happy...but they act like it's the opposite! Anyway, I love the poem, friend. Very nice write.

I am giver... wait. No, I'm a taker. But I also give. I think I'm in between. I'd take someone's love, someone's dear blessing, but in return I'd give them my respect, my happiness, my trust, my life, and my heart.
And don't forget a little laugh :D

It's my absolute pleasure :)
And it seems in most relationships there is one that gives more, loves more than the other. Beautiful when a couple have the balance!

Okay, I must answer your question first. I'm definitely a giver in a relationship. I actually despise the ones that are classified as takers that I've dated. There has been times where I was in a relationship with a giver too. Which is much better if you don't know that. I like the comparsions that you made above in your poem! The several pictures and definitions towards the end made it more interesting and kept my attention. I must say that this piece is rather impressive and by far my favorite of yours. I do love your writing style! :)) Keep writing!

I told my kids. Love is hard. Must find someone on the same road with the same desire. Hard to do. Givers and takers are people reaches out and hoping to find something. I like the way you wrote the poem. Create thoughts and making your point. Thank you for the excellent poem.

This is going to be interesting. Since the ending of your poem is a question, well I would like to think of me as the pleaser instead of giver:) I think there's a slight difference between the two words, yes? What’s wonderful about a pleaser is that she is considerate, thoughtful, and has the other person’s well-being and happiness in mind. While a giver provides. Yet, if the pleaser becomes excessive in doting over the partner, the partner can feel overwhelmed and stifled, feeling a burden of guilt toward the pleaser. The partner may sense that there is an underlying need to be needed, which causes him or her to withdraw. And I think you were able to deliver this situation throughout your piece. I like the thought you were trying to convey. Thank you for sharing..

thank you :) Sometimes the giver is the pleaser
Ook this is a freaking awesome poem!

I think I'm sort of in between, I give a lot but I never offer everything, especially not if the other person isn't giving me something.

Which one are you Raya? The giver or the taker?
