I Bet My Life On You

July 10, 2019

I know you’ll say it doesn’t make sense
All of the insults I take
For your sake,
That sometimes, being polite is rude
Being rude to myself,
And love is but just a ruse.

I know you’ll say reckless loving,
Is a fool’s mayhem
Endless obsession
Is a madman’s end
And even the devil
Will not dare.

I know you’ll warn
That you’re not the one
That palms holding water
Are quick to lose
But darling, still,
I bet my life on you.

    The world we live in makes it seem as though there can’t be a love as reckless as this one.
    But I believe there is.
    I am a believer of genuine love. LOL
