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!

Hello Chukwunyere Darlington nice to meet you. Love is not taught it is a feeling. You just have not met the right person yet. Have a nice day my friend.
