Torment

Making mountians out of molehills is driving me insane
Then you worsen it further by calling me some names
You tell me no one really loves and cares about me at all
I think you get a kick out of seeing me crumble and bawl. 

You seem to always believe the worst of me
Things made up in your head.... that only you see
I paid dearly for the mistakes I once made
I want to close the book and let them fade.

You forever remind me and make me pay
Most times you don't believe a word I say
Always accusing me of wanting to stray
The edges of my heart are starting to fray.

Controlling me emotionally is a game you like to play
Your right, I'm wrong, why does it have to be this way?
I would never hurt you, demean you or ever make you cry.
Please bestow the same courtesy or I might have to say goodbye.

You tell me I'm wonderful, beautiful and smart!
But something flips in your brain then you're tearing me apart
I believe you hate yourself for falling in love with me
And you want me to end it and finally set you free.

You should never belittle and hurt the one you love
Love is precious and fleeting as a dove
Our time on earth goes much too fast
I don't want to spend another moment living in the past!

Should I end this love affair? Or give us one more chance?
Are the wounds so festered maybe the only option is to lance?
I know I may never love another as completely as I did you!
But how much heartache and strife can I keep going through?

    Yeah, love can be so fun sometimes, can't it? I feel the torment - and yet, why are we so reluctant to put an end to it? I guess the only thing worst than being tormented is the fear of change. And, the build up and put down, the praising followed by the belittling takes its toll and enslaves us to the master. Terrific write - the body of the poem definitly does the title justice. Joe
