Why

Why
I query my inner soul
Is it an abomination
To cherish a tender
And loving partner
In an amorous 
relationship?

Why
I query me
Is it that life
Is but a home 
Of struggle unending
For the faithful 
lovers?

Why
Again I query me
Is it that lovers can't
But face unending
Yearnings and 
yellings
In the face of selfish 
taste and passion?

Why
Me I query once 
again
Do we attempt 
ceaselessly
To quench the 
undying flame
Of lasting affection 
amorous
Between celestially 
joined lovers?

Why
I query me once more
Can't we replace 
The scorn we have 
for love
With flowers that 
bloom
All year and season 
round?

Why
I query me again
Do lovers bamboozle 
each other
With barrages of lies.
And not straight
And truths unending?
