Why - Poem by Chelsea Crisman

Why do u try
-so hard-
to make me cry?
How can you stand
to gaze at your reflection?
-Can you not see who is staring back? -
When will you open
-your gorgeous eyes-
and finally see
that it will be?
What will it take
for you to understand?
Who shall convince
-you-
of who you really are?

-Why can't it be me? -

Why do you refuse
-to truly see-
that you affect everybody?
How can you smile
and laugh like that?
When did I
-realize-
that I miss you?
What silent
-yet screaming-
event occurred that
made me live
-for only you? -
Who could ever
find this amusing?

Why did this happen?

Why was it you?
How could I
-not see-
what was coming?
When did you
cast this spell over me?
What will come
-of this twisted tale? -
Who, but you,
would wish this on me?

Just one more question dear

-Why do you love me? -
