You Are Someone I Cannot Love
Lenina, I cannot deny I was attracted to you.
Knowing you has brought me elation.
You appeared to have feelings for me that were true.
However, this relationship must have a cessation.
I do not understand the ways of this civilization.
Your kind of love has filled me with consternation.
What I used to know is what I have missed.
Our kind of love is different on the reservation.
How could you fall in love with a non-conformist?
For these reasons, please cross me off your list.
I cannot accept these promiscuous ways.
I was hoping for you to love only me.
What strange bedfellows we keep nowadays.
Life in this London appears as an anomaly.
From all of these irregularities, I must flee.
Based on the novel “Brave New World” by the late Aldous Huxley
