Love

I’m swearing off love

or any kind of emotion -

not worth the turmoil,

the mental commotion.

I’m placing my heart behind

some reinforced walls,

and they will be impregnable

no matter who calls.

I’m cutting off all feeling,

and when push comes to shove,

you’ll no longer hurt me

‘cause I’m swearing off love.

Thanks, Kat. I wouldn't be so sure, though.
