Why Do We Love Someone

Why do we love someone
Have you ever thought of that
We do when we get something in return
So why couldn't you keep loving me back

I loved you because you loved me
Here I am being honest
I adored you n worshipped you
Because you gave me much respect

Then things happened
Life started taking its twists n turns
I kept loving you
But you stopped loving in return

Once you said you never did
That was just my assumption
I still have those letters
That prove your long lost conviction

I wanted to burn the whole lot
But something made me stop
Keeping my rage aside
I put them in the loft

When I am in my 80s
Looking back at life
I might like to go through them
A bittersweet mix of angst n delight

I never wanted to write mushy (love) poems
But then I wrote one in my head
I liked it so much, I said...
What the hell...And then I picked up the pen.
