How Do I

How do I say what I have to,
when I don’t know how? .
How do I tell you to leave,
when I want so badly for you to stay? .
How do I hate you,
When yet I love you so dearly? .
How do I let you go,
when your not really even here? .
How do I say good-bye,
when I know exactly what that word means? .
How do I feel this way,
when normally I never would? .
How do I believe you,
when deep down I know it’s all a lie? .
How do I manage to smile,
when I only want to cry? .
How do I lie to you,
when I can’t and don’t want too? .
How do I say what I have to,
when I don’t know how? .
How do I make us work somehow,
when I know there is no way too? .
How do I still love you,
when you don’t love me back? .
How do I let you go,
when I want so badly to be with you? .
How do I lose something,
that I never had to begin with? .
So tell me how to say what I have to,
because I don’t know how.

Hi Correina I have been reading some of your poems which I like very much because they come from the heart. Is this poem 'How Do I' written about a relationship of your own and if so, has this relationship now ended?
