Don’t Fall in Love
The rain falls past my light post at night
to land sadly on my white canvas shoes
The sounds of Genesis
emanate from my earphones to vibrate in my ears
but fail miserably to change my mood.
Person after person walks me by
on there busy journey to nowhere significant
She says she still can’t show me love
Maybe it’s a lie…
Maybe life should once again go on.
Why don’t I ever know?

Notes: Deep in the disappointment of failed relationships… I’d forgotten what dramas I enjoyed for myself back then.
