Don't Hurt Me If You Love Me


Dont hurt me if you love me.
Beating and kicking is not signs of love,
Pulling my hairs and head boxing me.
If you hurt the one you love,
What would you do to the one you hate?

Dont hurt me if you love me.
Calling me names is no love to me,
Locking me up like a prisoner in jail.
If you take my freedom away,
What would you do to the one you hate?

Dont bully me if you love me.
Telling me I'm no use to you,
While you spend the money I earned.
If you stripped me of all my pride,
What would you do to the one you hate?

Don't take my womanhood away
Passion is for us two to share,
Destroying my life with your wicked act.
If you make my life a hell on earth,
What would you do to the one you hate?

Dont shout at me like a little girl.
Screaming and kicking is no help to me
Making me feel like the guilty one.
If you destroy my self esteem,
What would you do to the one you hate?

Dont cheat on me lover boy.
Flirting around all day and night.
While I cook and wash your clothes,
If you treat me like a slave today,
How would you treat the one you hate?

Dont kill me if you love me.
Beating me black and blue,
Breaking my arms, nose and breaking my ribs.
If you split my head in two?
What would you do to the one you hate?

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
