Why can't you love me

Please tell me the truth
I need to know
Even though it will bury my existing happiness
Please tell me

I am tired of this bread of lies you feeding me with
I need this flake of truth that always drops when you feeding me
I rather drown in pain
Than having a trip on a boat of lies which transforms me into a comedian
Throughout the journey

I am sensitive as a plant
Dying leaves is my dying smile
Cause of drought of love
Flower beauty of attraction that I used to have has faded
As you had taken away that season of love away from me

Please tell me
Why can’t you love me the way I want to be love?

Can you hear this beat from my heart?
Beating up for love, it’s even close to the state of breaking my chest
So you can see how it’s beating
Can you see this ocean from my eyes?
Even tears supply within me went dry as I am crying out love that’s drawn all over my face now

Or am I taken like a car recently?
You thinking of trading me to get newer version of me

We cemented wall of trust with honest
Does this mean the wall has fallen or has cracked for lies to go through?

Please tell me

Why is this so hard for you to urinate it over my face?
Have I turned to be a ghost for you to fear me?

Please tell me
Why can’t you love me the way I want to be love?

    believe me, u cant force anybody to love u, If you love someone, set it free, If its yours it will come back, If it does not, it never was!
