Why Do We Do This? - Poem by LAPORCHE HOLMES

why do we fall for people?
all they do is hurt us in every way that they can.
they try to get the best of us.
we sit here and tell ourselves 'they love us, they wont hurt us'
but they end up hurting us anyways.
thats not how it should be.
we have better sense than this.
but we just think that we know everything there is in rule book.
but we dont.
we dont even know half of what is written in ink in the book.
but in our world,
we're smart. we know it all
