Why?

 


September 5, 1988


Why?
Why can't he understand?
He gets angry so easily.
He doesn't realize
How his anger hurts me.
Why is he so violent?
Why so self-righteous?
I don't understand.
I love him,
But I can't live with anger
As strong as his.
I can't let myself
Be hurt by him.
I love him,
But I need to be fair
To myself.
Why?
Why am i his target
Every time he is angry?
What did I ever do to him?
I don't understand.
His anger is constant:
Only his subject changes.
I wish he would be gentle,
Like he was before.
He was kind to me
Before we were married.
Now he treats me
As a servant,
And a target for his wrath.
It hurts me.
I love him,
But I don't like to be hurt.
I don't want to lose him;
But I am confused.
I don't understand
His constant anger.
I wish he understood,
So he could control it.
I'm sure he can
Control it if he chooses.
I wish he would.
