If I have learned anything, it is that
Love is not what they say it is.
It is not what I have been told or shown and I have been lied to.
Whether it an outright deception or a case of omission, I cannot tell.
For the love that I have known has, in brief and rare instances, vaguely resembled that in movies, songs and fairytales,
And yet there is so much never seen, sung or written of
That no one ever warned me about.
