I Hate To Fall in Love
I hate falling in love
For love is wicked and blind.
And weird and wild.
It gets me hypnotized.
As though I was a sheep to be sacrificed
I hate falling in love.
Love is full of empty promises and euphoria
It is out of sight, out of mind
I hate to fall in love
It is pain ridden
It is a sadist who laughs at you when you are slapped
When you are in tears, it cheers.
I hate to fall in love.
When you give it your heart’s brake
It gives you a heart break
It uses your enemies against you
It turns your friends against you too
It makes them worst enemies of each other
yet it teaches all to adore one another.
It makes you someone else
But it would blame you afterward
For love’s sake, some are condemned
While for its reason some receive awards
It makes one deny ones’ self.
It puts one in a thousand miles
Away from smiles
It turns a hero to zero
It changes “Hi” to why?
Please who would teach me how to love
because I hate to fall in love!
