Fool's Love

The love of a fool
is a fool of a love.
I’m as full as a sieve
or an unwanted glove –
a slave to my will,
which is all well and good,
but my will is a well
which is misunderstood.
I ask, what is love?
Well, I thought we’d make do,
but for some, love means war,
and by some, I mean you.
I ask, what is love?
And I answer – not this.
I open my eyes
and I face the abyss:
what a fool I have been,
living under your rule…
So I’ll fall out of love,
as I’m nobody’s fool.
