Nonsense

I wait in line, like everyone else
Carrying a basket of sweets
I knew I couldn’t just take,
And that was my mistake,
I saw it as give and take;
A bargain, a trade;
I expected a price to pay.

You told me it was all free,
While you looked at me,
As if there was never a reason to ask,
But I demand for you to explain
Something I can’t understand.
There is no such thing as free,
Love comes with pain;
A much harder price to pay,
And you say, I agree;
“Loving you was never easy,
You hurt me more
Than I can bear,
And yet I still can’t say
Goodbye to you,
Because darling, I love you.”
