Why Don't You Love Me

You are the apple of my eye. I adore you beyond words, but my heart you defy. I cherish your being, but all you do is make me cry. Why don't you love me? I don't know why.

I support you in every way, and through all of the the bad times, by your side I remained; but you could care less and regardless of my affection, it is my patience you continue to test. You stress me out and make me sigh. Why don't you love me? I want to know why.

 I've sacrificed for you and given you countless chances for you to undo the pain you've caused; but all you've done is berate me and hold me responsible for your failures and flaws. Your inconsistencies have brought me nothing but misery and your refusal to take accountability has shown me that your reasonings coexist in the realm of narcissism and misogyny. No matter how hard I try, all I can see is that you truly hold no type of regard for my feelings. Why don't you love me, when all I try to do is accommodate and please? The answer is simple: you will never feel that way for me......

Author's Note
This poem is about a reflection on a relationship I was in in which my partner never returned the love and support I gave him and my constant questioning of his feelings for me.
