Despicable Me

I should be mad at you
I should be upset
I should just walk away
And say, “To hell with it!”

I should lock that door
I should throw away the key
I should be contemptuous
Oh, but that isn't me

Instead I make excuses
For what you do and say
I try to see the good in you
And love you through the day

I forget past transgressions
I come back to your arms
I forget all the ugliness
And I revel in your charms

I should just walk away
I should make you learn
But oh, that just isn't me
Instead I burn and yearn

Well, try not to worry
When I’m all bruised and torn
I’ll only have myself to blame
For to you my love I've sworn.

I am full of self-loathing
For my blind eyes cannot see
Anything but your beauty
Oh…..despicable me!

    If you really care for someone a blind eye is needed sometimes, but you must gift yourself with lots of love. Always be true to yourself. Great Poem Eileen. Warm Smiles, Connie

    This is so wonderful, and so accurate of many of our lives, at least mine in part! I believe we all show a part of this for our loved ones! We love so much that we allow ourselves to take the blunt of the problems to shield our loved ones, some people this way more than others! I really enjoyed reading this incredible poem this evening! What a beautiful piece, such Great Work!!
