the thing about love is that it consumes you
piece by piece
bit by bit
until you are nothing
the thing about it is that there is nothing you can do about the heart
that you can do nothing
we do not CHOOSE who we love.
no matter how much we might wish to.
and when it is not returned
when your heart's owner has already given their heart to someone else
all you can do is crush it down
and try to find something else
to distract you.
because even when you are locked in the kiss of another 'love'
you are still thinking of the person you never got to touch at all.
