I Can Never Understand You

I can never understand you
One minute, you’re in love with me
The next you completely despise me
One minute, you think I’m funny
The next you’re complaining that I told the punch line wrong
One minute, we’re singing along to our song
The next you’re yelling for me to turn the radio off
I want to understand
What this is, cause
It’s not love
No this is not love
And I wish that I
Could read your mind, cause
Listening to your words is
Driving me blind
To the beauty that we could have
That we used to have
That I thought, we, had
I can never understand you

This was a really good poem. I admired the back in forth questions. I could tell how without communcation realtionships can be tough. Great Message. Suggestion: maybe end with a hook next time

Wow, nice job. It really shows the truth and the confusion of a relationship that isn't that strong.
