My Karma To Love You


Is it too much for a woman to say

“Good morning”

Is it too much for a woman to say

“I love you”

Is it too much to show love, to give love

And if I know love hurt so much, I would not love at all


The power of my heart lost its electrolyte

The energy of my heart beat slows down

My breathing gets shallow sometime now

And my heart ache like a poison knife pierces my heart

Tears form my eyes but I never let you see

I stay in silent; mute


Hunger for the warmest soft voice of yours

But no longer has it been heard

You turn away and ignore; it hurts more

And if I know love hurt so much, I would not love at all

And if you’re the last man living on earth

I will always love you, even though it hurt


My heart is little and so am I

But love, honesty, compassionate, and trustworthy

Is what make my small heart big

And if I shed many tears because of you

I rather do because it’s my destiny

My karma to be with you


I know other can see this as insanity

Woman rights will be said

Divorce...

But love has its power

Sometime it is strong

That letting go can’t be the right choice for some woman like me

ouch, it hurts to love someone intensely...and yes, divorce is not an option...it's really a choice to go on loving despite the fact that the love you give is unrequited...

I'm sorry you have to go through something like this. You are such a beautiful woman and shouldn't be treated like that at all. You are right, we cant evade such circumstances. In my current relationship, never did I say, "No tears in my eyes" there was plenty of tears in my relationship. I know a lot of friends and relative that was in an abuse relationship. Not a lot of women are strong enough to buckled up and leave like you. If I was in that position, I do not know what to do to be honest.
