Love is a word that’s used quite often
But how do we fall in love?
I think over time it is forgotten
It starts with the optic nerve
As our eyes will see what we like
And look for the right shape or curve
It then travels quickly to our mind
In a wave of lust, need and excitement
Like a seeing man who was once blind
Our bodies smile and secrete smells
We release our true selves bit by bit
To move to fast can destroy the bells
We then move to truth not perjury
And forsake all others in life
By having closed heart surgery
Our individualism is first to go
With common sense and beliefs
We are left with nothing to show.
The blindness that occurs with love
Is often just a smoke screen
To create a partnership without a shove
The body is an amazing machine
That can take all this abuse
And still function outwardly serine.
I am not saying that all love is bad
In fact I have caught it myself before
But most times was left empty and sad.
To undergo the procedure and then survive
Is the greatest feeling on earth,
And can make you fell so very alive
If you should not survive as you might
The operation of falling in love
Just remember don’t walk towards the light
Because try, and try as you might
The floating rejected, battle weary
Will infect you and steer you all right
Down a path that is full of fear
And cause loneliness and pain
For the satisfaction of creating the tear
A sustenance that comforts those above
Is no real damn reason for us all
To stop trying to fall in love!
