Love, they said

is the greatest flaw

And love, they warned

will be my fall

‘Cause love, you see

love will betray

For love is human

and humans destroy

So I ran from love

‘til I tripped over you

And even as I fell

in my heart I knew

That you were my flaw

and you were my fall

You’d burn my world

‘cause you, you I loved

- R.V.

A daydreamer in love with words and all the pictures they can paint, R.V. dreams of becoming a published writer one day.
