Because of them...

It all began when I started to like boys.

But little did I know, those were all decoys.

They told me sweet nothings as if I was one of their toys. 

I realized love was a deception.

Boys only lie to make you take contraception. 

I wish I knew it wasn’t a misconception.

Because of them I grew distant 

My insecurities became persistent 

As a kid, love was wired into my brain.

Fairytales were never susceptible to my pain. 

Who knew the lack of love would make a woman insane?

Where’s my silver lining?

Now I know no one’s really binding. 

I must’ve been foolish to believe weddings meant more than confining.
