Clover Poetry Series:  Sometimes Love Is Not Enough

Clover Poetry Series: Sometimes Love Is Not Enough

By Megan Mann


I wrote this after a week of hearing my friend complain that she just couldn't deal with her boyfriend's drama anymore, but she wasn't ready to end it because she loved him. I felt horrible, but I had to remind her that sometimes love isn't enough.  Sometimes you have to leave a situation because it's beyond fixing. Sometimes you just have to think of your own well-being, rather than falling prey to wanting to stay so you don't have to be alone.


i love you
i love you
and i love you some more
but loving you isn’t enough anymore.
 
you made me feel low,
you made me feel sad.
you made me feel like an idiot,
and i’m so tired of feeling bad.
 
I made mistakes,
that much is true.
but I tried to fix them,
so why didn’t you?
 
i want to be with you,
i want to be yours,
but you can’t see i’m unhappy,
so i have to walk out the door.
 
it makes me sob,
it breaks my heart
how you couldn’t just be
how you were at the start.
 
relationships change
and people do too
but this is the one time
i didn’t want it to.
 
now I feel unworthy,
now I feel small.
but it shouldn’t be like that,
I deserve to stand tall.
 
so please don’t say i love you
i don’t know what i’d do,
but all i know
is that i can’t stay with you.
 
I deserve to be treasured,
I deserve to be adored.
But that’s not your role
As I’m no longer yours.
