I Don't Know Why

I don't know why
You had to leave me
Why you had to lie on my face
When you said you had
No one else in your life
But you did

I don't know why
You had to lie
Why you cheated
Why you broke my heart

Why did you tell me
You were coming back but you didn't...
Why did you say
You loved me and didn't mean it...

Why do you say
You're on your way...
But you stay
Where you are.

It's a male thing I know
If not then shape up.
And start showing
That you actually care.

This may come as a surprise, but this is not about an Ex or any friend... This poem is about my father. It s repetitive because of how many times he hurt me. Between cheating on my mother and first step-mother and telling me he would be there for me then backing out, it all became too much. All I want is for him to know how I feel.. but thats a wish that may never come true

Its a little contrived, more of you needs to come through

I liked this poem. it just appears to be the poet's heart pouring out. except that there is an element of tiredness in it. it comes across to the reader. i'd like to give another 1/2 star for emotion. good transfer of emotion. still just tired though. bring more!!! you got this.
