Why is it okay, for others to hurt your feelings?
Why is it okay, for others to waste your time?
Why is it okay, for others to play with your love?

Why do people pretend to love you?

Why do men pretend to love a women’s body, when they don’t?
Do you look at your women, the same way you look at other females?
Should your women be above the other females or should she be equal to them in your eyes?

Why do people pretend to love you?

Why even wake up a women’s love, just to destroy it?
Why pretend to love a women’s a body, if you can’t touch on it, caress it, or embrace it?

Why do people pretend to love you?

Heartless people have the tendency to turn others heartless.
Not caring about the next feelings.
Not caring about affection.
Not caring about time spent.

Why do people pretend to love you?
