Love Isn’t Enough (Poem)

You say you love me,

How can I believe that we’ll be together forever?

The past has shown me that everyone can leave me,

It’s so hard to believe in forever,

Hard to believe that you won’t leave me.


You make it clear that there are things that would cause you to leave me,

You don’t let me believe in the illusion of love,

I know that’s better than having you lie to me,

It’s better to know that we don’t have a fairy tale when it comes to love,

Still there are moments when it’s hard for me.


Fear of being left is always there,

We didn’t marry out of love,

Perhaps that’s another reason why fear might be there,

Still we eventually fell in love,

Yet I know love won’t ever be enough to keep someone here.
