How much do you love me?
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
I'm going to leave if that is not confessed.
Why haven't you returned my calls?
Is there someone else,
You have taken more of an interest?
And that of yet has been addressed.
Why don't you want to be with me?
Why now do you want to be alone?
I'm doing my best to respect your requests.
But it seems my love is not enough.
And it appears the happiness I can give to you,
Does not measure up to your expectations.
Or equals that of your own.
I'm warning you...
Without me in your life,
You'll never know peace of mind at home.
'What is this,
Your weapons test?
To weaken me with your insecurities.
Until much love for you I confess?
The only thing you've done for me,
Is to wish you the very best.
I'm glad I decided not to have a lasting relationship.
Since I realize with you,
That decision I know I'd eventually regret.'
