Love is Dead

Love is dead in this home.

It died when you let each man

take a part of you with them.

But aren't you stronger than that?

Can't you rise above

the dirt of the earth?

You almost made me believe

that all men are scum

but I just can't.

I just can't be hopeless

when it comes to finding love.

I just can't give up like that.

I know there is a man

out there for me

that will treat me like I deserve.

Maybe I already met him even,

but you're so desperate to boycott love

that you can't believe I'd pursue it.
