Why I can't love you back

Why I can't love you back

A Poem by Kim Jimenez
"

People now seems have a greater understanding in same sex relationship. But there are some countries still not open with those homosexual orientation. I hope someday they will understand.

"

There is a reason why I can't love you back, 

It isn't because my love for you lacked.

It is just this world suck,

That in this situation we’re stuck.

I guess we don't have any luck,

Because this love will cause a shock.

 

I love you and the heaven knows I do.

But this world has a different view.

They said we shouldn't push this through,

Because even God doesn't want us to.

But if this is wrong how could it feel so true? 

Me wanting to be with you.

 

I guess we should stop this now,

I'm sorry my feelings I can't avow.

Because I know our love they wouldn't allow,

So I'm asking you to take our final bow.

But before we go let's make a vow,

That we will be happy somehow.

 

This is our unfortunate reality,

The reality that I shouldn't be in love with thee.

How happy it could be,

If they just know how to set us free.

But the world we live will never agree,

In this kind of homosexuality.

 

This love I want to fight for,

Causes our families' uproar.

They will do their best to tore,

This love that we swore.

I tried my best to ignore,

But fate seems not in our side anymore

 

Now in this situation I’m stuck,

They made me marry the girl I don't love back.

They said this is the right track,

But why does my heart felt racked?

The future with you seems pitch black,

That is the reason why I can't love you back.

Very interesting. I have certain opinions on this subject, though, no one should be forced to marry another person who clearly has no interest. I find that very cruel. Your words show helplessness in a society that can be often destructive. I don't have an exact opinion on whether other countries should allow this, but still, I can tell that the love is sincere. That is what matters the most. Great job!

This is really interesting. Even I keep wondering why some people just find it so hard to come into terms with same sex relationship. I'm​ still looking forward for that day when it wouldn't already be an issue, the day when love will finally prevail.

Very good poem. I like the rhythm. :) Keep writing.

Love always finds a way.
Like liquid it flows around, under and over. If it is damned - it bursts through. True love does not fear persecution. It is braver than bravery itself.
