Relationship Epidemic(Intro)

Relationships these days are infections
A lethal dose of a particular association or connection
Lust attacks the heart while sex immerses the mind
Lost on the path to marriage because true love is hard to find
A relationship has pros and cons
So many broken bonds
Couples try to respawn
But instead a break up responds
People don't know the difference between love and IN LOVE
Love is supposed to be to heart as hand is to glove
The glove covers the hand
The IN LOVE feeling covers the heart
Relationships these days rarely paint pictures
True forms of art
The epidemic is getting worse
From human to horse
But not all relationships are bad
Not all are sad
However not all are good
As well as glad
Don't know what relationship means look it up
Discover the history of the "hook up"
Dates, phone calls, sex
Then what's next
Break ups
Make ups
Bring it full circle
Like the glasses on Urkle
The boy named Steve
Since Genesis with Adam and Eve
This feeling is more than an epidemic
More like a pandemic
Causing emotional pandemonium
Elderly fear of sodium
Younger generation
Moving quick no hesitation
To make relations instead of relationships
Trying to be grown
Time sure has flown
So I write this poem
To cure the epidemic in our home
