Regulating The Beat - Poem by Ray Mather

No more love, no more hate,
Let me set the record straight,
I don’t want the aggravation
Of being slave to an emotion.

No more joy, no more pain,
Gone the sunshine and the rain.
Live a life that’s bland but free,
With no more bonds to bind me.

No more highs, no more lows,
Gone the sweet talk and the rows.
No longer pulled in each direction,
Without the conquest or rejection.
