Why do you do this

As you looked at me I can see love

But is it the right love I want

You tell me you want me always

But you push me away as soon as I get close

I can see you wanting me to be there

But you keep me at arms length 

You say you want to have a future with me

Then you say to go find someone else

You want me to be happy

But once I laugh at a persons joke

You tell me to go to them to be happy 

Why do you do this? 

Tell me to be happy with you 

But you break me and tell me to go away 

I dont want the push and pull 

If you loved me you wouldn't want to lose me 

If you loved me you wouldn't miss with my emotions 

If you loved me you wouldn't judge everything I did as wrong

Why do you do this?
