Because I love you...He

Because I love you...

He says this to my face,

Even though I know he's lying,

I fall into his embrace.


Because I Love. You. 

He says raising his voice,

I'm scared so I cancel

on my friends tonight,


Because i love you,

He whispers softly in my ear,

So the question as to why

I should stay is answered,


Because. I. Love. You.

He growls out like a feral wolf,

I am prey to him,

The color it drains from me,

Like always the numbness replaces,

My will spits in my face,

I am left weak.


because i love him...

I say to anyone that asks why,

even to myself,

I've learned to lie.
