Those who speak of love.

Beware

of those

who, so often

speak

of love,

remember

not to

get too involved

with

their plight,

chances are

there is someone

responsible

and you

just might be

picking up the pieces,

because Love

too often

is mistaken for

infatuation,

but they

won’t see that,

they can not

see so well through the fire

the mystery

of the heart,

the failure

of the brain,

at face value, yes

they may seem true

but beware

the unhinged

romantic,

they know

what they’re selling

but not so much

what to do after they’ve made the sale,

yak-yakkity yakking

their pattern back

to heartache.
