Love's Ex-Lover

Dear Love,

 

You’re a force of destruction

Masked in a veil of comfort.

 

You combine two hearts into one

Just to sever them like an ax to a flourishing tree.

 

You fly under the radar

Under the guise of “I love you”,

 

And only show your true form

In the midst of a fight.

 

And then, when it’s all over,

You run to hide again.

 

Your façade is happiness

But your actions are the opposite.

 

Love, you coward,

Pretending to be something you aren’t,

 

Only because you want everyone

To want you.

 

Which they do.

 

Except for me.

Love, I don’t love you anymore.

 

Sincerely, Love’s Ex-Lover
