I’ve seen what love can do to people

And it’s scary

It worries us

It hurts

We believe we can domestic it

And that makes us insane

We can try to be alone but it rests between each lull

I’ve seen what love can do

And if I could I’d rather have nothing to do with it

We lose our appetite for food and even conversation

Our tears begin to burn

And focus is completely lost

We think love is a game but it only plays us

Still, it’s cyclical.

The wanting to fall.

I’ve seen what love can turn people into

And I fear I’m running into my nightmares

Getting older equals

Accepting anything… settling.

Never knew good love

So we accept familiarity

And if you’re alone

Realizing you’re beautiful can be the hardest thing actually worth accepting
