You - Poem by niakeva thomas

You, with your hurtful lies and your stabbing knife,
With your powerful words and controlling life,
How dare you stand before me and look into my eyes,
And tell me that you love me, when we know that it's all lies,

You, with your powerful hands and your demeaning voice,
Your scornful eyes and unlawful choice,
How dare you become a thief, and steal away my heart,
Only to betray me, and tear me world apart,

You, with your piercing eye and bruising hands,
With your harmful action and eye catching glance,
How dare you make a fool out of me, with all the things you do,
To break me and mistake me, now I'm in love with you,
