You Roughly Love Me - Poem by Mary Ann Malone

You pull me down and roughly love me
Then you quickly turn away
Not a kind or tender word
Do you ever have to say

That's the way it's been for years now
The same thing every night
You take me then you leave me
Just like turning out a light

There's just one thing a missing
In this love affair
The feelings that I want and need
The love we never share

So keep this in your mind somewhere
Someday it will surely be
When I will give you back
The love you have given me

I'll pull you down and roughly love you
And then I'll walk away
Good - bye is the only word
You will ever hear me say
