Why? - Poem by LeeAnn R. Jones

Why do I still love you
When you treat my like shit
Why do I let you break my heart
Over and over again

Why do I take you back
After you give me some excuse
Why do I still love you
When you don’t love me in return

Why do I put up with you
When all you talk about is wanting sex
Why can’t you just accept the fact
That I’m not ready

Why can’t you see
That you have hurt me so many times in the past
Why can’t you see that I’m afraid
Afraid of being hurt again

Why don’t you understand
That I would do anything for you
Why don’t you understand
That I love you

Ok so you don’t understand any of that
But this you need to understand
I’m done loving someone that doesn’t love me
I’m done letting someone rip my heart from my chest
And crush it right in front of my face
I may love you, yeah, but sometimes
Love’s just not worth holding onto
When all it does it cause you pain
