Why Do You? - Poem by BlacknessRose ...

Why do you lie?
When you know it hurts me
Why do you betray me?
When you know it pains me
Why do you leave?
When you know it breaks me

Guess what?

I ain't hurtin from you liein
I ain't achein from your betrayal
I ain't breakin from your leavin
No more!

Instead...

I'm livin, breathin, sleepin, Keepin
All that is important
So you just lay awake at night
Hurtin, achein, and breakin

Chew on that!
