Why Did I Love You? [August Contest]

It is a mystery
Whose answer I cannot fathom
Maybe it was because you bewitched me
With the gaze from your cold eyes
Like Medusa and transfixed me to the spot
Perhaps it was the way you made me feel
How my heart skipped beats
Upon seeing you
Or how you set free butterflies in my stomach
Or maybe it was because my heart refused to listen to my head
All I have are speculations
Second guesses to why
But I can never answer the question
Why?
Why did I Love You?

Good reasons listed there. Wish you the best.
The line
"With the gaze from you're cold"
You're should be 'your' as you're is the abbreviation of [you are]
