when love is not enough

the tears well up
like a dam about to burst
what on earth must I do

to reach you

to share and explain
so that you understand
these essential deep needs
I long from you to live a healthy life

if you do not recognize
these imperative necessities…
why then
do you ‘yes’ me to death?

I cannot live with this
I will not

promises not kept
are lies
perhaps unintentional
but deception none the less

think about it
because slowly but surely
it is killing me

open your eyes

remember your heart
and the art of compromise
if not, we will both lose

if it is you
the one who hurts me so
when I am trying painfully
for I believe in you
…and you let me down

then surely I am lost
for I trust in you

you do this
like a recurring dream
that I can not wake up from
over and over again

yes, this is considerable

I tell you now…
as much as I love you
for my part
I near the end of this point

this is warning
it is not a threat
it is not meant in a harsh way
it is a request, but a final one

if you find this too difficult to do
if you believe it trivial
I need to know …
now.
