I Have To Know

I Have To Know short poem

Photo by denharsh

I have to know why you swore you’d love me forever
And then tried to lie about cheating on me, why you gave
I a ring to wear then told your friends we weren’t a pair,
Why you took me to Heaven then dragged me through
Hell Well I Have to Know ‘cuz I’m still under your spell
I thought we had something special but oh boy was I
Wrong…when I looked into your eyes I thought I saw
The promise of tomorrow there but I can’t count the nights
You left me all alone with just my tears of despair so want
You come clean now and tell me why you lied and why you
Destroyed me heart and soul…I have to know, I Have to Know
Maybe you never cared for me at all but I never fell for
Someone so hard before like I fell for you well I think if we
Could just sit down together and put all our cards on the
Table maybe we could settle our differences and I could finally
Learn to let you go…oh if only if I knew the reasons for you
Being so warm hearted yet turns so cold well I Have to Know
Before I can let go I Have to Know!

I have finally come to the spot Where the rubber meets the road. Where you open your eyes But cannot see. Any farther than the grave. Many years of struggle and pain. A story with a beginning, A miserable middle,
