    I can’t understand why I do the things I do
    I can’t understand why I allow myself to continue to go through
    I can’t understand why love has to hurt so
    I can’t understand why I can’t just let go

    I can’t understand why I love him like I do
    I can’t understand why there are things that I never knew
    I can’t understand why your love has to come with so many strings
    I can’t understand why my heart chose you as my king of kings

    I can’t understand why it takes so long for you to respond to me
    I can’t understand why you are all I need
    I can’t understand why I always have to call you
    I can’t understand why you can’t give me what I’m due

    I can’t understand why I keep making the same mistakes again and again
    I can’t understand how I fell in love with a friend
    I can’t understand why I’m sitting here feeling so blue
    I can’t understand why I allow you to treat me the way that you do

    I do understand that you need some time to get your **** together
    I do understand that this is one storm that I will not weather
    I do understand that my love is deep and long, far beyond measure
    I do understand that my heart is a sacred treasure

    I do understand why you cannot make up your mind
    I do understand that I will not be waiting for you while the answers you seek to find
    I do understand that I am deserving of so much more as a Queen
    I do understand that I won’t tolerate being in your life but not seen

    This love that we have hurts more than it really should but
    I just can’t understand for the life of me why you thing everything is all good!

    All good? Only to the person whose needs are being fulfilled. True, a queen deserves so much more, than a selfish king. I hear ya.

    Love is a open book and never understood when denounced badly
    we hurt from it and felt it yet able to taste it our emotions get in the way ! SO....

    I can't understand why all the lies
    I can't understand the reasons of these cries
    I can't understand your lovin for my heart sake
    I can't understand when your acts are fake
    I can't understand the ways ya maind make

    I can't understand why i do what i do
    I can't understand why i love u so true
    I can't understand the hurt and pain
    I can't understand the remotely stain
    I can't understand this hate u bring
    I can't understand many of these things

    I can't understand why u won't stand as a queen
    I can't understand the sorrow that cling
    I can't understand why i'm still ya King
    I can't understand why we not a team
    I can't understand how we fell in love

    I can understand u nolong in my plan
    I can understand i'm not ya man
    I can understand yo simple aim
    I can understand why all the bad names

    I can understand yo love is untrue
    I can understand what i need to do
    I can understand these great measures
    I can understand reactions and direction

    Love can be a beautiful thing when it's two souls unconditional
    and love can be hurtful when one see left and another see right
    togetherness bring happiness like a foreverness we often get
    caught up between da myth of love and the reality of love with
    emotions and feeling in the way of thinking .....and yes a Queen
    should have the pot of gold for she is a rare jewel .

    I can understand because you HAVE A HEART!
    Because you are allowing yourself to feel the tru range of your emotions... it can be a slow process but there is BEAUTY to behold,
    MORE BEAUTY YET UNTOLD
    SO REIGNETH, LIKE YOU KNOW
    YOU ARE A QUEEN
    LET YOUR BEAUTY SHINE FROM WITHIN YOU
    AND STAND FORTIFIED
    YOU SHINE MAGNIFICANTLY!

    loved the depth in this.

    As long as you understand this....


    I do understand why you cannot make up your mind
    I do understand that I will not be waiting for you while the answers you seek to find
    I do understand that I am deserving of so much more as a Queen
    I do understand that I won’t tolerate being in your life but not seen


    Your understanding is good....

    such confusion and clarity at the same time

    all these scattered thoughts over another person whose thoughts aren't as scattered could mean you are in love with them more than they are with you. good books, and advice from older or more experienced people are very good neutralizers for mixed emotions. don't ever think you got it all figured out because the mind is so elusive and one misperception or a little miscommunication can lead to months, even years of stress and dissatisfaction. i'm only sayin' this because i like you.

    p.s. i'm going to call you "hopeful romantic" from now on.

    your universal brother,
    shuga shane​
