Enough is Enough

Tributes to Lovers

I gave you all of me,

and what do I have

to show for it?


A year of tears

and heartbreak,

and not much else.


But the question begs:

why do I continue 

to come back to you?


Why does it matter

what you think of me

when you've hurt me so?


I think it's because

I've had countless men

treat me like I was invisible.


But you saw me even

when I wanted to disappear,

you looked into my eyes.


And when I needed to forget,

you reminded me 

that I wasn't alone.


And maybe I needed you then,

and you had a purpose 

in my life after all.


But at some point,

enough becomes enough

and it's time to move on.
