What Love Is Not- Zizi
What Love Is Not
I was told but I should have known, warned but should have listened.
I decided to fly higher, facing the storms I stayed to my story,
Scared to face reality, I believed in fairytale. After all, love is blind, I said.
Questioned father's teaching and cursed mother's love, for what? I judged, what they know about love anyway.
Driven by ego I changed my ways, let me say, abandoned my teachings,
Good friends become enemies, deemed advice as jealousy from the giver.
Oh! Trapped by my eyes, I was blinded by bold lyrics of beauty and charm of pussy. To an end, I believed to the power of love to cross oceans, to touch the sky, feel the stars. I became a god to my goddess, ego the only way to go.
I should have known, I was told but I should have known,
Because I knew what love is, but never asked what love is not, maybe it was a little too late. My eagerness for what I know folded the reality... "Eagle can fly high, but it has to come down to drink". Except, there was no down to come to for my stupidity.
For I had no wings, after all, it was a fairytale, a comeback would be a fall. I should have known What Love Is Not
