Why do I shiver
when you touch me
Why can't I embrace you
When you embrace me
Why can't I love you
The way you love me
Why can't I feel passion,
Why don't I want you
Inside of me
When you kiss me
Why does desire walk past and
Miss me
You have never hurt me
Betrayed me
Cheated on me
Beat on me
Nor have you
Abandoned me
You have loved me
Been there for me
And had my back
Yet and still
I can't seem to feel
The way a woman should feel
When a man loves her that way
It's not every day
When goodness comes my way
I suppose that's why I try
To force love inside
My heart - so that I feel
That being with you
Is justified.
And I should feel fortunate
To have someone like
You by my side
But I'm not in love
And never was I
So how can you ask me
To be your bride
For the rest of your life?
