Do I Want Love?
Do I want love? Im saying yes out of desire & no out of fear,
But I can't just cover my ears from what my heart wants to hear
Do I want love? I’m saying no out of fear & yes out of desire,
So my soul burns for it like a spark in a forest fire
When you have the feeling of love, all of your senses open up
Cuz a hope without love is never hope enough
Do I put love on a pedestal? You're damn right!
Because without love I have nothing to look forward too in life
Do I want to put love first in my life?
Yes, but honestly I'm scared of the fights.
The pain, the turmoil, the misery.
The changing, the lies, & the history.
You say you appreciate me but I think you're telling lies.
I say I appreciate you, but really I want to appreciate what's in between your thighs
Too many failed attempts to keep count
Too many past relationships fill my mind with doubt
Too many racing thoughts to write a love poem worth feeling
Too much heartache & pain that just remains there with no sign of healing
