he loves me, but he doesn't like me
can you remind me, daddy
why i love you again?
why when you walk out
i crave for you to come back in...
perhaps i like to suffer
you say the raging hormones are no excuse
for tears
pointless because I am the only one being hurt
you roll your eyes, make for the door spitting an insult
that i try not to hear
you say you're glad everyone in the world doesn't
think like me
because I'm irresponsible, and stupid, and forgettful,
and too emotional
well why don't you just move on?
why don't you just tell me that I'm being stupid again
for ever putting up with what you say,
why don't you just tell me what you want to and admit
that it's ridiculous that I stay
you love me, but you can't stand me,
you respect the others, lykadaisikal in their worlds
that don't involve you
you know they must be much smarter than me
i'm sure they don't forget their keys or think that Russia is in Europe
i'm sure they won't refuse to do for you after you've burned them,
they'll just walk away.
so tell me, papa
why do I stay?
why do i stay, why do i stay, why do i stay,

This is avery strong write filled with so much emotions.. the words come alive because of their rawness and you don't hold back with your heart in the piece.. the voice in the poem is honest and really shows a realness that is very cool to read.. well done on an excellent piece.

"lackadaisical" coming from a 1700's literary reference": "lack-a-days-ical" meaning someone who will waste the day.

you ever had someone in your life that claimed to love you? Clung on to you at night? But in the morning they don't like you? Praise the people that are unlike you? When the sun goes down, they grasp you again and take you out, brag about you to all their friends? The cycle keeps on....maybe you can relate.
