Tareq Jalabi

Love?

Love hardly stays
especially these days
Love is so cold
Although it has flames
Have you heard the stories
That were told
always be a chicken
And never be bold
Don`t be a toy
Played in its games
Keep taking the bus
Instead of its five-star planes
Control your heart
Keep your emotions cooled
Don`t fall in love
Don`t be fooled

    'Don`t fall in love
    Don`t be fooled '

    what a great ending, well written and well expressed. So true. What do you think, fall in love with a chance that you might get hurt or not fall in love at all. I say the first option, don't hold back

    I do not fully agree as I has a good example of myself and my love which our love will last forever till death I vowed though we are separated because of his studies for the time being but I will always regard him as my one and only love.

    I don't have that situation with me at all, but as growing up I have been hurt because of love. Sometimes we all think why love has to be so hard.
