KY by Jephtah Abu



I have been brought on this earth to love another who does not care.

Even though I have given all that I have to her, she demands much more from me.

In my state of plight she gives me joy even as she rebukes me.

In a vicious cycle, I envision her acceptance as my final ending.

For she knows she hurts me each day and that is why I seek her even more.
