Please stop falling in love with women who can't/won't love you back.
No matter how much she says she cares--
People love popcorn,
And still throw them away every day.
What made you think you were special?
Well, I know, people believe all sorts of things--
Spirits that come back
And love that lasts.
Oh please, Bo Peep,
Put your faith in something tangible, like
You can learn to love
Your life is not some fairy tale, so wake the fuck up.
If anyone offers you a smile and some fruit,
Shove her in front of a bus.
It is hope,
And most particularly the hope of love
That is the glass in the apple--
It will carve you to pieces from the inside;
All the more if you believe
In the ridiculous notion
Of someone sweet
And the restorative power of her offered kiss.
