About the Poem

The feeling of obligation is something that is common in most relationships. I know that I've been through it and now that I look at it, it was because of that feeling that I was hurt the most. I gave so much that I can never get back and I regret that so much. I just didn't want to lose him. I still don't understand the feelings that I felt, as well as the reason why I did some of the things I did, but I guess some things are suppose to remain a mystery.

Why Do I?

Why do I smile at the sound of your voice?
Why do I let you take over me as if I had no choice?
Why do I let you touch me in places never touched?
Why do I like to have you around so much?

Why do I melt at the tenderness of your kiss?
Why do I feel like I could live forever like this?
Why do I put my heart in your hands?
Why do I answer to your every demand?

Why do I tell you leaving me is not your wrong?
Why do I let you know with out you I'm not quite as strong?
Why do I take you back even though I know it's not right?
Why do I feel like I should please you by not putting up a fight?

Why do I care about you even though you hurt me?
Why do I turn my head from what's plain reality?
Why do I try to hide from what is true?
Why do I still have these feelings for you?

I absolutely love this poem it is exactly the feelings that I am going through right now. My head knows one thing would be best but my heart is still in control. How do you break this cycle. This is something I have never had to deal with before, how can anyone have that much of a hold on your emotions? Great work on capturing the pain of this situation. Keep writing!
