Love is like a Cancer of the heart,
It can make you stronger person or tear you apart,
Once it's roots grow and set themselves in,
Watch as the symptoms and the side effects begin.
It is sometimes undetectable to the person it effects,
But those who live around them can predict what happens next,
They'll see a battle commence as the war for life starts,
Will love or life win it? It's a battle of the heart.
Sometimes it can make you ill or even make you glow,
Is it even real love? How is anyone to know?
What if when you look back and the whole thing was a fake?
Is taking such a gamble really a worthy risk to take?
When in life can we be sure that things are meant to be?
Things like falling in love to some are only too easy,
For me this time though I know I'll wait for the right one to come along,
I hope this time is my happy ending, for in the past I have been wrong.
