Because You Love Him - Poem by RIC BASTASA

he betrays you
in ways that you cannot notice
in modes that you
cannot discover
in a manner that what you do not know
cannot hurt you

on so many pretenses
and he knows it
and he wants to change and
stop those
but he is as weak as the
first Adam to
and to the Snake and
to the Apple he
shall always succumb

it is hard to wake up a man
who is awake

but because you love him
you always understand that a betrayal
cannot be that
hurting anymore

when he comes back
you are there waiting by the stairs and the door
and you hug him back
with all your
open arms
