Enough is Enough

Folder: 
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.
