Love is Just a Word


Love is just a word I just found out
By it nations stood far to riot
Troy and Spartan fought till men bled
Trading Achilles to his eternal bed.

Love is but a by word
Humans leave but by lust
Entangled by it treacherous thread
Which only drains the blood so fast.

Love is only a mean word
Men, women and children all trade
Just to find themselves entangled in your web of thread
And all you do to them is fade.

Love you are just a word
Not a feeling so told
You only exist by the mouth of a whistling bird.
You are only but a story never to unfold.
