What Can I Do (poem)

What can I do

I love only you


Though you hate me

Berate me

Turn wiles to frustrate me



I’m dirty

You kiss him to hurt me


What can I do

My heart aches for you


Through you bruise me

Abuse me

To pains introduce me


Your rant spree

I can’t flee

In dreams you enchant me


What can I do

In riddle of you


Could search till I found someone new

Someone who will give her heart too

Ride clouds over oceans so blue

The things any sane man would do


But what can I do

This servant of you


Though you spurn me

And burn me

No action can turn me


What can I do

Just be lover true

I think he needs to let her go and find someone who loves him back without hateful words and gestures.

If there is love and there is reciprocity also, love shines forth in true colors. A great poem about a real and passionate longing.

You have a way with words. This one leaves me wondering if the love is one-sided. Sad, but so much what is experienced by a few.
