Why can’t I get over you?
I miss u like crazy!
A day doesn’t go by
Without thoughts of you.
I get mad sometimes
When I think of the hurt you caused
Deserting me when I needed you most.
I tell myself you’ve given me
More than enough reasons
To let go, move on and forget you.
But inexplicably, I’m still in love with you.
To my chagrin I admit,
I love you unconditionally.
It’s like you stole my heart from day one
And I’ve been fighting a losing battle
Ever since to retrieve it!
I want to and need to let you go!
I’ve tried with all my being.
I’ve prayed that you be
A distant memory, if any at all.
I’ve sought every measure of distraction
Compiled all your heartless actions
To fuel animosity toward you.
I’ve struggled to forgive you
As you’ve proven yourself
Less than human and unworthy
Of my friendship and love.
Yet though my head screams, “Let go”
My heart says, “I’m all for you.”
Why can’t I let go?
