Unlove Me - Poem by Christine K. Trease

Don't look at me that way; don't say those things to me.
Don't make me notice you; I do not want to see.
Don't get inside my head; don't tell me that I'm smart.
I do not want the pain; you're too close to my heart.

Don't smile that winsome smile with the shadows 'cross your face.
Don't make me long to feel your comforting embrace.
Don't make it hard to go when it's time for me to part.
I do not want the pain; you're too close to my heart.

Don't catch me off my guard; don't make me love you so.
Don't take me by surprise, with my face lit all aglow.
Don't make me feel regret if we have to be apart.
I must accept the pain of my disconcerted heart.

    Christine, love is a difficult emotion to resist... almost impossible. Nicely stated!

    I really enjoyed this Christine. And I can, like many others I'm sure, really understand its core message - it's beautiful.
