Falling In Love - Poem by Mary Jesusa Villegas

I don't want to "fall in love" anymore

I always get disappointed

I know I'm just lonely

I know the things that he is

I wanted to be his

I know I don't need to buy

this kind of love

this kind of love that

teenagers sell

I know I just envy


what they can do

what they can experience

how does it feel to be


by the one you're really in love with?

I can play

I can make them mine

But I don't want to

I want it to be real.

But what I feel-

"Falling in love, "


escapes smoothly

like an eel.

I know I'm just lonely

I know who

I want to fall in love with

I know

"Falling in love: "

is a feeling that drives

people out of their senses

that's what make me disappointed

What is

"falling in love"


I know,

I can't

I know,

I won't

Because I want to

But I don't want to just because

I know,

I can't.

I know,

I won't
