A Love Manual

Why toy with love;
When it's true course is rough.

Smoothness isn't it's path.
The latter only in-cures pure wrath.

This manual is what is due.
For the heart will only bleed in a moon that is blue.

Your life should be outstanding.
And tirelessly never leave anyone standing.

What is vocally passed
Is sure what should come to pass.

Speech should be as transparent as glass.
For bad ones lowers you to the grass.

Let in mind not a gun. 
A bye-gone should be a by-gone 

Sole in vocabulary "forgive"
For he that does Divinely is spared grief.
A sensuous connection should be an addiction.
For this in all notions powers the passion.

In your heart let this thoughts have a room.
With these, the heart only bleeds in a blue moon.
