What Love Got To Do With It - Poem by Anita Khelawan

I have confessed my love for you
I told you all my truths
I wish my mother was there to warn me about love
My parents heart ache for me as I go through this break up
I am envious of those who still have their loved ones

Why did I have to love you so much
Why does it hurt so bad when you've moved on
How do I get over this
Sleepless nights, yearning for your kiss
From fake smiles and teary eyes
I have lost my paradise

Why did I have to love you so much
We did the whole relationship thing
My lack of trust and your yearn for luster
But you said you did right by me
As I did right by you

You are moving on now
You are liming and going out now
You treat me like a friend
I don't want that alone

So I cry and cry some more
Because only I feel what I feel
I'm here waiting for you to come back
When I know you won't
Why am I still hopeful

Searching for answer
I've prayed to God to have you
Time and time again
I've prayed to God to strengthen my heart
I've prayed to God to accept the things I cannot understand
I've asked God to silence my heart
I've given it all p to God to care
But here I am still feeling this
Some days I'm fine then I have days like these

How do I get over you even when I don't want to?

    Heart wrenching story. Your words are tender and true.
    Revealing much of yourself on the page.
    Heartbreak is never easy. Keep God first my friend
    Through him all is accomplished and brings rest to weary feet.
    Take your time! Thanks for sharing. Another excellent piece

    You have so delicately expressed the emotional part of a love affair terribly falling apart. Thanks.
    So I cry and cry some more
    Because only I feel what I feel
