I Love Thee Too Much - Poem by Sherry Painter

Love thee for who they are,
Love thee for who they can be,
Love thee from who they become,
I do,
But for all that I do,
I get shot in the heart,
Time and time again
And left there to put myself together

I love thee too much,
How can that be?
It is possible,
I do it every time you decide to come around,
And every time I let you come inside
Even though I now its not going to end well

Why? Why do I keep letting this happen?
Because I love you

And because I love thee to much,
And its killing me
And my heart, its such a mess, the scar tissue is built up so thick...

    Because I love thee to much for my own good,
    And its killing me
    And my heart
    Faster rather that later

    Must be careful with your love. Not too much, nor too little, just keep it rolling down the middle. (Report) Reply
