Don't Peek

By
Love covered my eyes

And told me not to peek

Love knew that if I could see

I would run away

Love knew that I was weak

And it used that against me

Love forced me to play

All of its mind games

Love consumed my soul

And left me all alone

Love was supposed to make my whole

But it left me empty

Love used to be the sun that shone

Every morning when I awoke

Now it was the fog

That covered all my hopes

Love began to suffocate me

As it tied me in its ropes

Love became a heavy log

That I carried everywhere

My eyes were still covered

And I could not see

I began an affair with despair

Love still hovered

And kept choking me

Until one day when I broke free
