Not enough

A storm rages within me
I love him so, can’t he see
I offer to him all I can be
But it’s not enough for him

They tell me I should move on
How will I survive if love is gone?
I’ll fall on my knees, or sing a song
But it’s not enough for him

He degrades and insults all the time
Another verbal blow with every clock chime
I speak up, he tells me don’t whine
But it’s not enough for him

He promises to change, treat me like a queen
It’s not the real him, the man I’ve seen
I’m so utterly tired of how things have been
It’s not enough for me

So I tell him my goodbye
Seeing the fake tears well up in his eye
He begs me to stay, he will try
But it’s not enough for me

Not enough
