Love was like an addiction,
I felt like I needed it like a drug,
I was struggling with withdrawal symptoms caused by the addiction,
I desperately wanted the drug,
Yet I survived years without that drug.
“I want it” my mind said,
“I want it” my body said,
“You’ve been hurt by love” my mind also said,
“You’ve been hurt by love” my body also said,
I overcame my desperate need for love by listening to the hurt that was said.
I lost the desperation that attracted the cruel men,
I began to have the “I don’t want just any man” vibe,
I lost the loneliness that attracted the cruel men,
I began to have the “You can’t fool me” vibe,
I began to have control of myself and didn’t allow myself to give power to the cruel men.
No, there’s nothing wrong with wanting love,
The problem is when it become desperation,
The problem is when you let the hurtful people in because you want love,
The problem is when you become blinded because of desperation,
Thus, you must learn not to become desperate for love.
