“I LOVED YOU” …

I loved you even when you caused me pain

I loved you even though there was nothing to gain

I loved you even when others said I shouldn’t

I loved you even when I thought I couldn’t

I loved you and tried to make things fit

I loved you even when you called me “Bitch”

I loved you even when my heart was scorched

I loved you when with child, you were mackin’ on my porch

I loved you when I couldn’t eat

I loved you when I couldn’t sleep

I loved you when I went down the street to get your child scraped out of me

I loved you over valley and hills

I loved you even while you ran up my bills

I loved you when I sent you to jail

I loved you when they let you out without bail

I loved you the times I put you out in the cold

I loved you when you came back and you I could hold

I loved you when you mistreated me

I loved you when you screwed me until I screamed

I loved you even though you loved Cherie & ShellyAnn

I loved you more than any man

I loved you even though you gave me nothing for Valentine’s Day

I loved you even though I was your wife, but your girlfriend got paid

I loved you, even though I knew you were running game

I loved you even though you didn’t feel the same

I loved you and cried inside as you told me lies

I loved you even though I saw the deceit in your eyes

I loved you even though I knew, the only one you loved was you

I loved you so much it took a while for me to see…

That I wasn’t loving me.

   *Sometimes in life’s relationships, we’re so busy with “being” in love, that even toxicity is overlooked. This isn’t loving or what it’s meant to be. It is during this endurance we fail to see that by allowing these types of relationships to be, we aren’t being loved nor are we loving ourselves.
