Don't You Know

Don't You Know

A Poem by Amanda Worthington

Why
do you let her love you?
Don't you know
she's only playing you?
She's got a finger caught
in the collar of someone else
and her lips pressed to yours,
and a line of boys
just waiting for her,
because
she's playing you.
I could say
I'm better for you,
I can love you more than her.
But if you're too blind
to see who she is,
you're to blind
to see who I am.
You're too blind
to think for yourself
and that, boy,
will be your heartbreak.
Maybe one day you'll see
and realize your mistake
but for now,
Why
do you let her love you?
Don't you know
she's only playing you?

I've had similar thoughts before. Love is so complicated and tricky, it's never easy to tell when it's the real thing and when it isn't. Unfortunately, few are able to find it without some heartbreaks along the way.
Still, it's better to have feelings that can be hurt, since that (usually) indicates you're a human being. :)

you write well

it seems like this all time since been in America
but in Somalia, there is less freedom to take such friendships for granted
