. When Love is Despised


Falling in love is the easiest part
Cupid says he never misses a heart
The intricacy is in staying in love
You need a lot of help from above

The brain says love doesn’t exist
It is a mere anticipation of a reward
When it stops and hope has ceased
You better be prepared and on guard

The unwise heart does nothing but beat
The smallest reward makes it go faster
But when the tricky brain sensed deceit
The poor damned heart has to suffer

When you can no longer recognize “love”
And the brain is drained and the heart is tired
And you are no longer getting help from above
Then you know the greed for love has backfired
