Here comes another cheesy love poem.
Another pile of words to feed into my lost emotions.
The meaning behind them is indeed true,
But as usual, they won't account for anything.
But I suppose its better to rehabilitate my emotions through poetry, rather than to express them to you.
Even though that's exactly what I SHOULD do.

You still make my head spin and my heart pump fast,
You're still the light of my life,
The shine in my star.
You still set me free, keep me singing all the time.
I can't help but love you. Oh well.

Yet, I seem to think...
This poetry gets old.
I waste my words on paper.
Than saying them to you.
Its just drab. Senseless. Boring.
What's the point anymore?
Its ridiculous.

The question was asked by artist Adele.
"Should I give up? Or should I just keep chasing pavement, even if it leads nowhere?"
Should I keep pursuing you?
Or is it a waste of life?
Will it lead me somewhere?
Or will I just keep chasing pavement?

I say that I'm done chasing, and that I'm ready to take.
But for some reason, I can't.
I'm so deathly afraid of the outcome, even though I KNOW it would be a simple "no". Why am I afraid of "no"?
It hasn't stopped me before. Never has. So what's hindering my pursuance to move forward?
Who the hell knows?

Now you noticed.
This ISN'T just another cheesy love poem.
Because I've learned that cheesy love poems go nowhere.
Me writing a cheesy love poem will be just like "chasing pavement."
Because it will lead me nowhere.
