Say What You Mean

What he said:
I love you
I'm in it for the long haul
I'm willing to wait for you, as long as it takes
I'd give up everything to be with you
Forever and beyond

What he meant:
I want you
I'm in it for as long as it's convenient for me
I'm willing to wait until I decide not to wait any more
I'll give you up to keep everything I have
Till the going gets tough.

Even though her head knew exactly what he meant,
Her heart chose to hear only what he said,
Trusting once again in the WORDS,
And now her badly broken heart
Will never be able to love anyone but him.
