Love Or Lust? - Poem by Joseph J. Hernandez

Tell me is it love or lust
I've been through this before, now it's hard to trust
This time it seems real
Tell me is it a hit in run kinda deal
Are you here to stay
I wanna give you my scared heart but,
Am apprehensive, afraid it's beyond repair and you'll just
Throw it carelessly away
I'll love you forever is what she'll say, unpersuaded
My heart just wants to know if you'll love before today would start
I had this game once don't wanna play
It left me torn apart in the worse way

    Yeah it hurts and makes it hard to give someone your heart. Especially when someone else said they would love you. But just because someone else hurt you. Doesn't mean someone else will. I hope you give this person a chance. Everyone deserves a shot to prove you wrong right. (Report) Reply
