Love isn’t a weapon we should
Go gunning with.
Love isn’t a machine
To one our lives summarily.
Love isn’t the cause of our pain
But the solution
To the loneliness of our arraignment.
That’s why now I love the people
Who are good to me –
And why I remember less and less
Those who prefer to negate my existence.
