Only fools fall in love

Only fools fall in love

A Poem by Tara

And I guess I am one of them


Only fools fall in love

And I guess I am one of them


For you; you knew I would fall
And think about you whenever I wake
Little did I know that you had a cruel heart
And eventually got bored of your fun game


You would call me your Cupcake
Your Jewel 
Your Sweetheart
And in vain I let my heart make a pact

To be forever yours

Our love was like a piece of art
We could make it whatever we wanted
It did not matter who attacked 
Because you would never let my day go dark

It started off as little cracks
Which then began to collapse
Soon enough I felt like a ghost
Of whom you refused to interact

I arrogantly ignored the truth
Of who you were
And what you had become

My mother had once told me
That only fools fall in love
That life is not a fairytale 
And princes do not ride up on white horses

I wish I had listened to her
Because I now know she is right

Only fools fall in love
And I guess I am one of them

A very good poem; I have to agree with you about "Fools fall in love", because when anyone is in they will do the most foolish acts when seeking the approval of the opposite sex.

You have written a wonderful poem by using the famous saying,"Only fools fall in love".
May I complement you by adding the following statement?
"One gets mad when falls in love"

Everybody's rational mind tells them that love is foolish! But that doesn't keep us from falling in love!
A nice write.
