Love is dumb though

I know this is dumb to think

to feel as if this all was real instead of nothing

that those times you missed me and came looking weren’t just boredom

an itch that you couldn’t reach.

It’s stupid to believe that any lust-filled words were true

beyond a carnal need that could have been serviced by anyone

or anything.

I’m ridiculous if I saw your words for me as meaningful

that they were meant to last

through more than just a wasted night or stagnant morning.

Love is dumb though.

Love is stupid.

Love is ridiculous and it doesn’t care which direction its pointed or why

The fuse is lit because it needs to be

The explosion happens whether you want it to or not

Even if it only is one side that’s turned to rubble.
