Tough Love

What do I do now you have betrayed me?
Where do I turn- to whom do I run?
Who have I got to hide me away now?
You can't say sorry- the damage is done.

I thought you were different, kind, caring, special,
I thought you would love me like no one else would,
I never expected to slide down this spiral,
I want to climb out again- if only I could.

You push me down when I start to get better,
You make me cry, though you should dry my tears,
I love you so much, that I totally hate you,
All that you did was confirm my worst fears.

The truth of the matter is love isn't easy,
Love can be painful, and love can be cruel,
I'll love you forever, though I should know better,
It will be me who ends up as the fool.
