Shouldn't - Poem by Weldon Davis

I shouldn't love you
Yet damn it I do
I'll follow you over any precipice
I am a fool for you

I hate how my love
Is taken for granted
I hate that
I never learn
I'm just a throw away
A cast off
I'm so dejectedly bitter

Other guys lies to you
Are sweet symphony
My words fall upon deaf ears
I have no clue as to why...

I have no clue as to why
I sit day after day
Week after week
Expecting you to change
You're still the same

Maybe it's me who is broken
In this day and age of 'Open' relationships
Maybe chivalry really is dead
To be romantic is blase
Commitment and loyalty are looked upon
With amusement

To only want one woman to some
Is 'cute' to others pathetic
I guess I fell into the latter category
With most people

I shouldn't love you
Yet I do
Cause one day when beauty fades
All that will be left is a remnant of days past
You'll look for love
Look for it at last

I'll be there in memory
Haunting you with my smile'n eyes
The what-might-have-beens

I shouldn't love you
Simply because you do not appreciate me
You think I'll always be an option
You think I'll just sit on a shelf
And all the other women shopping
Will just pass me by

I guess that's a chance
You're willing to take
A woman I love with all my heart
Who doesn't know what she has
A man who shouldn't love her
Does unconditionally
