A-Z poetry and thoughts

Just a blog I'm creating to post some poems and thoughts.

Love is a scam

In it I've lost the sense of who I am

Or what to stand for

Or what I'm worth

Your self esteem is a punchline

And the whole damn thing is a joke

 

Love is a lie

In it I found so many cries

From pitiful souls

All begging for
mercy

And i found that self doubt is a monster

That crawls besides you unseen

 

Love can be cruel

It eats away what you thought true

Or the things you held dear

Or considered wholesome

And it tears you down bare

From one day to another you can be undone

 

Love is not magic

And though I know it sounds very tragic

It will teach you

And it will hurt like hell

Like you're constantly on fire

But you're the only one that can tell

 

Love is expensive

It can often even be neglected

It is not simple

And it is not free

You say "that's not what love is"

But that's exactly what love was for me.
