Why?
Maria Perez

All I ever gave was love
All you gave was pain
As my heart aches
All I ask is “why?”

It started as affection
For you it grew revulsion
A whirlpool of mistrust
All I ask is “why?”

As your anger grew
Every swing you threw
Hurt skin and bones
My soul as well
All I ask is “why?”

Day after day it grew
Became irreparable
As my blood drips
Sweet darkness creeps

My last question is “why?”
