Why Her? - Poem by Ana Silva

She says she's to the other side,
So, why does she call you?
Every minute there's a ring,
and I'm wondering about when I was gone,
staring at this ring.
Were you out having fun?
With her and your other pals?
While I wept at home?
And I took so many falls.

Why is she calling you again?
Doesn't she have her girlfriend?
So, why does she call you honey?
When you said I would be your only bunny...?

Why is she calling you again?
Making plans for tonight...
or did you forget?
It's our 7th anniversary tonight...?

Why are you angry with me,
because I saw you two kiss...?
Was it meant to be kept a secret?
For how long was I suppose to be missed?

Your phone rang the other day,
on the kitchen counter,
as I prepared our 7th anniversary cake.
A message read, 'I made the wrong choice. I love you.'
As I read her name at the end, I wept for a while.
This was too weird to be true.

Now, I find you two. Embraced on our bed.
Where so many fond memories were made.
The rose petals seemed to have lead,
to where I want those memories to fade.

Why her?
Was I not enough?
Why her?
Did I not work hard enough?
Why her?
Did I not check on you enough?
Why her?
Was I too straight?
Why her?
Was I not adventourous enough?

Why Her?
