Why ?
Why do you torment me,
with your words and actions? 
Everything you ever said,
I have racing through my head 
I am trying to over analyze, 
at least that’s what I have been told 
I keep thinking or rethinking 
everything I ever said or did.
But I keep coming up short,
for the answers I long to have. 
Your words and your actions dont add up,
and in my mind 1 and 1 doesn’t equal 2 
How did I get to such a confusing place ?
Thought the lines were very distinct.
Guess they weren’t.
Or maybe they were but you moved them,
and I crossed some invisible boundary 
I didn’t know was there.
I am not sure what the hell happened here 
How long am I going to let your words and actions  torment me? 
How long until I just give up altogether ?
I think I just did.
