What You Don;t Know

a poem by Patty Lomax, USA

All I ever wanted was to mean more to you than anything else
Knowing I’d never be you’re everything
I was willing to settle for your something
I ignored my inhibitions and refused to learn my lesson
Out of desire and stupidity I opened myself up again just to have my heart smashed
My stupidity shows through often
Even though I know you are going to hurt me again I stay
I offer you chance after chance
Often wondering what is wrong with me
What do I need to change? What is so wrong with me?
Reality hits with a shattering crash
All your lies, secrets and empty promises
Has caused such mistrust, heartache and insecurities
I know you will not change after all this time
I could never do what you’ve done to me
But I cannot deny that I am foolishly in love with you…
