LovE is Not Enough

by Lakesha Jenkins

You're beyond running on empty....I'm not talking about your car
When you have given your all without a return on the investment
The tears have turned to anguish & your soul is evaporating
When your pleas are spoken loud & clear but never manages to create a change
After endless days of working hard & nights spent crying into your pillow
Praying & worrying then worrying your prayers aren't working...wash, rinse & repeat
LovE is not Enough 
To put back the clothes you suddenly find yourself packing
The resignation you put in at work

The steps you take to your car
The key you turn in the ignition
The voice guiding you to New on the GPS
The look you see in your eyes as you check the rearview mirror
The shock upon your face when you realize
The smile upon your face mirrors the one you feel in your heart...
Feel...feeling, no! LovE is not Enough to stay
But Loving ME is is enough reason to choose me today
