AND WHEN I SHOWED HER THIS POEM SHE ACTUALLY AGREED DUH NUT JOB

          WHY NOT TO LIE

If you want to know why I love you
And why I do the things you make me do
I could tell you that I know precisely why
But that would be a mother f*****g lie

Day after day I’ve had  one simple request
And after those days I require quietude and rest
Because day after day I want to talk of our future alone
Alas the past is your master so the reason I still love you remains unknown

I know for certain I love you but I don’t know why that should be
Because you are the selfish one when you blame things on me
I should, by all rights, leave you far behind
But you and I both  know I’m not that unkind

What I am sure of is most men I know would have bid you goodbye
And wouldn’t care how long and loudly you cry
So if you want to know why I still love you 
I haven’t got a god-damned clue

    When I got your message, at first I thought you were slamming me! Boy am I glad I kept reading! I like your poems and want to keep reading them. As for this poem, I think your first stanza flows the best - again, sometimes I get tripped up, especially with the line that starts, "alas the past..." however I love the line about how you're not that unkind and I think the ending is perfect for your poem. :)
