Don't make me fall for you

Don't write me letters
Don't send me texts
Don't call me on the phone
Because I will soon fall next
Don't send me snaps
Don't send me tweets
I'll fall for you too easy
Be sick for weeks
Don't like my status
Definitely don't like my picture
Don't make this thing worse
Or my heart grow thicker
Lets stop now, while we're ahead
Because I can't handle love
And I wont' go to bed.
I can never go to sleep
With you In my head.
And I've seen and heard all this before
You might like me now
But soon will be going for the door
Because I don't know how to love
And know no one who can handle mine
I will drop my everything for you,
Waste all my time
The only thing will be you
That is on my mind
Something my silly, crazy heart can't take
Is another cup of sugar
So I'll just take my coffee black for life
Sit there alone at the diner
I'm more comfortable lonesome anyway
Provides for a Much more selfishly convenient day to day
I'll build a wall around my heart
And you're going to pay for it!
For a laugh I had to add that
If you were a record I'd only scratch that
I'll play you too often
And spoil a good thing
I need hurt in my heart
And more reasons to sing
Karaoke in the bar
George Straight in my car
Being sad can make you happy
If you know who you are
Truth is
You are probably a normal, typical girl
But ill build you up in my head
My heart, you'll rule.
And you will probably squash it like a bug.
There's no sympathy for a nice guy
Only a friend zone membership mug.
And I'm Murphy's law
So I already know what is going to happen
I know the futility of my efforts and actions.
They make me lyrical.
My lack of game is
somewhat comical.
The looks I get are
rather hysterical.
 Somebody help me please
I need me a miracle.
26 years of the same old shit.
And I got at least 26 poems that talk about it.
The moral of the story is:
Don't even come near me.
Leave me be to feel sorry for myself.
With my love hate relationship with life.
I'm too much of a Narcisst to ever find love.
For that I apologize to up above.
So don't throw out any bait
Hook line and sinker
Because I will bite the bait hard
The boat I will sink her.
So don't do anything to make me fall for you.
Because I wouldn't know what to do.
I can't handle those feelings.
So What's new?
