Believing in Love

I know better

I coulda told you none of this was true

Coulda told you there would never be an us

There would only be a me and a you

That’s what I get for believing in love

 

I know better

I coulda told you how this would end

Coulda told you we would end up lovers

That claim to be friends

That’s what I get for believing in love

 

I know better

I coulda told you I would hold on too long

Coulda told you I would care more than you

And weakness would replace me being strong

But that’s what I get for believing in love

 

I know better

I coulda told you my eyes would be swollen in tears

Coulda told you my heart would be left in pieces

This pain would last for years

That’s what I get for believing in love

 

I know better

I coulda told you this wouldn’t be new

Coulda told you I would mean nothing to you

Instead of the one, you would be one of a few

That’s what I get for believing in love…

    I so love the thought process behind this poem. The inner soul speaking; questioning, trying to understand, and submissive nature towards this thing or concept of love. The last two lines goes really hard.
