WHY?

After all the times you hurt me,
The times you made me cry..
Why do I forgive you
with every little sigh?
The times you betrayed me,
and the times of painful good-byes...
Why do I still need you,
after all those lies?
The times that you ignored me,
and the times my pain has shown...
Why do I still care for you,
though you left me all alone?
With the scars you left upon me,
and the tears that fall each day..
Why am I still in love with you
Though you've treated me this way?

Laura~
Welcome to Passion's.
I enjoyed your poem
and especially this line -

'Why do I forgive you
with every little sigh?'

The heart gives until it
can't give anymore ...
then, it forgives.

Nice writing..I have been in similar situations and still felt love.  Love can last a long time and endure quite a bit.  James

HI Laura56
I understand those bad times but if we can sustain love and understand it's twist and turns and be patient with it I think it can proceed. Above all its sheer bliss if we can be with one whom we've loved all our life. I wish you the best let no one take you for granted.

Sincerely
A_L

I've often wondered why women let themselves be abused mentally and physically by a man, and remains in the relationship knowing nothing is going to change.  Can anyone explain this to me???
Your poem is well written and expresses a situation that many women face.
