Love is a very powerful word,
But today we toss it around carelessly because the lines are blurred,
Don’t tell me you love me when you don’t even know my middle name,
I know what you really want, and it isn’t my heart that you will gain,
I don’t want to hear that you’re falling in love with my pretty little face,
That doesn’t attract me, I am much more than that, I also have brains,
We aren’t in love if we just text everyday for a month or so,
A relationship should be face to face, didn’t you know?
You can’t call it love when you only know my obvious favorite things,
It was a good try, but you don’t know me that well, and I won’t be one of your flings,
You shouldn’t say I love you again, even if we have had any sort of past,
It clearly didn’t work before, what makes you think this time it would last?
I only want to hear that you love me if you have taken the time to get to know me,
I know my worth and I won’t settle for someone who throws around the word so carelessly,
I’ve done it in the past but never again, you could say that I was coy,
But that’s my fault for passing up on a gentleman, and settling on a boy.
