Why do you love me?
It makes no sense when I’ve treated you so bad,
When all I do is upset you all the time,
And we seem to constantly drive each other mad,

Why do you care?
When it seems I’ve only ever disrespected you,
And you tell me you’ll do whatever it takes,
But what I want I just shouldn’t expect of you.

Why do you stay?
When you say I care nothing for your feelings,
That I’m cold and cruel in my heart towards you,
And we don’t understand each others reasons.

Why do you cry?
Believe hurting you is the worst feeling I’ve felt,
You should rejoice that I have gone from your life,
For I hurt you so much it became bad for your health.

Why do you hold on?
When it’s obvious that it cannot work,
And that I never deserved your love one bit,
For all I ever did was cause you hurt.

So stop being patient,
I have to say goodbye now before it gets worse,
Look to the future, let go and start to heal,
For to you, I was nothing but a curse.

One day you’ll look back,
And you’ll realise that this was the right decision,
I had to say goodbye for your sake as much as mine,
And continue alone upon my lifes mission.

Maybe when I go Cairo,
We’ll bump into each other in a cafe,
And you’ll remember how you once loved me,
Think how crazy you was and just laugh.

I’ll never forget you,
You’ll be in my duas and in my thoughts,
One day you’ll forget me and be happy,
But our road together has now come to a fork.

So please dont cry,
Because you have so much love to give,
Your future husband and future children,
But when it comes to me you should never forgive.

Why do I feel so bad?
Because I shouldn’t have let it continue so long,
I should have known that I wasn’t ready,
And I now it feels like I’ve just led you on.

Why do I feel so guilty?
Because I know I was wrong to allow your heart to melt,
And to hurt you so bad and cruelly,
For which I will never ever forgive myself.

This poem is all sorts of amazing. I love the self-reflection and dawning self-awareness its MC is experiencing. It also reminds me of 'When I Was Your Man,' because it almost feels like the song's prequel. I like it!
