Because I Love You, Because You don't Love Me

Because I love you

I give you a kiss

Because you don't love me

You lash out and hit

Because I love you

I hold you tight

Because you don't love me

I'm scared to sleep at night

Because I love you

I cover the bruise

Because you don't love me

You have nothing to lose

Because I love you

I lie to myself

Because you don't love me

You keep me on a shelf

Because I love you

I must let you go

Because you did that to me

The world needs to know

 

This poem is about: 
My family
