Poetry : Why do You...

Updated on November 29, 2011
 Love comes in many forms, but pain is not one of them -Jenna Branham
Love comes in many forms, but pain is not one of them -Jenna Branham | Source

Why do you stay with him?

Why do you stay with him?
Why do you let him mar the beauty of your face?
I don't know the reason.
I don't feel your pain
You say it ain't so bad.
What's with the broken leg then?

Gimme one good reason, not to call the cops on him?
He said no body would love you, as much as he did.

Why you validate yourself with his foolishness?
Why not let him go and move on from this crazy business?

But you say you love him.
And that you can change him.
Delusions keep you with him.

Hey, why don't you come over, have a ladies night?
You said Nah I can't he doesn't want me out tonight.
I ask you is he mad again?
You don't give me an answer.
What the hell is this,
This man is a walking cancer.
Do your self a favor and radiate it.

But you say he loves you and no one will love you like he do.
Oh yea he loves you, loves to smack your face.
It's exactly In the same place from the last time the beating took place.
That bruise hasn't even healed yet. Black and blue are his favorite colors he says.
Then he acts like nothing happened. Like nobody can see the scars on your face.
Like nobody see's how much of a coward he is.

But you say he loves you...

Sorry but that ain't true.

The only thing he loves about you
is the fact that he can take you,
aim at you, punch right through you.
He destroy's you.
And you let him.
And you wont let me help you.
