why do you?


why do you love me?
why do you care?
why are you here?
when i'm not there
why do you lie to me?
why do you look at me?
when can't you be the one
who turns away and runs
who hides their fear
in someone else's ear
why do you even love me?

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
