Hate but Love

by Michael Nimura

Why can't you be more loving,
Why can't you be more honest
Why can't you be the one I want
Why can't you keep your promise

You said you'd always love me
You said you'd always care
You said you'd never leave me
But yet, your never there

I cry and you get distant
I cry and you get mad
I cry and you feel far away
I cry cuz I feel sad

Sad for all the time that's lost
Time we couldn't save
All this time we lost in pain
Lost time that I still crave

I want to keep on fighting
I want to be with you
I want to prove your family wrong
I don't know what to do


Why can't you understand me
Why can't you comprehend
Why can't you look beyond yourself
Why can't we start again

You say I never loved you
You say I'm never there
You say that I might leave you
But you can't say I don't care

You cry all day and say it's me
You cry all day and hide
You cry and try to close your eyes
You cry because of lies

You tell yourself we've lost our time
As if I it can't be found
You tell yourself we can't go back
We can't turn time around

I disagree and feel we can
It's not too late to turn
I plan to give me all to you
Just ask and we'll return

Return to how we used to be
Return to how it was
Return to getting lost in time
And laughing just because

I love you with my heart
It's never been just a phase
Ill love you with everything
Staying that way for all my days

Relationships, although they often times start off in the most brilliant of emotions, can very easily become distorted. Even if it is possible to mend a broken relationship, itâ??s very very difficult for both sides.
