No Love Please - Poem by Courtney Redmond

Every time I look at you
My head screams
Kiss him
Hug him
Love Him
“NO”, I can’t; I can’t do it no more
Love was the silly emotion I played
He took my heart and broke into pieces
I won’t love again
“NO”, I will not let the dreams of a romance
Start to swim in a vat of open arms
“NO”, I won’t be taken alive
You will have to kill me before I let another take my heart
Enough is enough
I won’t play the fool no more
One romance was too much for me

Hate me for giving up on the lovers dream
I drove that road before
And I won’t do that no more
I’d rather have a raven pick out my eyes
While vultures eat my body
Before the emotion of love,
Can spill from my body.
Sweet victory, please come to me as
I fall in the darkness
No more can my eyes see
For the color has faded and the sights been drawn
Just figures of falseness
Brewing on faces of people
Simple as that
No more love is to spare
