Why Did You? - Poem by Orlando Belo

Why did you make me do it?
You know you led me on.
If you hadn't started the way you did
I wouldn't have that far gone.

Why did you insist?
You know my resistance is low.
If you hadn't looked at me the way you did
it would've been easier to say no.

Why did you take advantage of me?
You somehow knew I would give in.
If I had not lost my voice at that moment,
you would've heard me shouting.

Do you now regret leading me on
and doing what we shouldn't do?
Oh dear, you are giving me that look again,
and my voice is going too.

Are you thinking what I think you're thinking?
I'm running late, my bus leaves in a minute or two.
This is so difficult, but if you insist in doing it again
I'll have to try my best to resist you.

There you go, you've gone and done it again,
and I'm going to be late for my tea.
Tell me, am I safe to put my coat back on,
or should I just wait and see?
