Too Much
by Mary Lee Jones

I don't know how much more I can take; 
we quarrel, we fight, and  loving you must be a mistake.

I've tried, I've cried,  and even turned the other cheek; 
you'll say "sorry" and it starts again before one week.

Like a yo-yo you play with emotions and it's starting to suck; 
you push me down, stomp on me, then pull me back up.

You promised a good life with and laughter galore; 
but broken and empty promises is no way to score.

I trusted too much and gave you all of what I could; 
but in a bed of roses six feet under is now where I stood.
