Who Needs Love?

Useless device of those that fear solitude,
I will not succumb to your lusty allure
I prefer my lonely attitude
To the drama and heartache I strive to deter

The boys and girls preceeding me
That took the fiery road of relationship
Now claw at their agonized hearts, never free
(And I want nothing to do with it)

You keep your grip so tight on fools
That cling to hopes if only in vain
Hopes that their love clings to fairytale rules
To face the dead, icy weight of rejection again

You cut our wrists and be still untrue
Pathetic love, I don’t need you

I like this poem very much. And its so true. there's a girl in my class whho um...cuts herself..and is going out with a 16 year old guy when she is 13!!! Very scary. Who needs love anyway when you have awesome friends?
