Falling In Love With The Wrong Person

We occasionally fall in love with the right person

With the perfect, the immaculate or the wrong one

We’re naturally numb

When we fall in love

We’re lamentably dumb

Regarding the emotions circling above

It is scandalous, harrowing and exasperating

When we fall in love with the wrong person

It is cockamamie, bizarre and disheartening

When we dive and die in a quaggy relationship

Taking a chance is suicidal; it is a noxious hardship

To give up and gamble so much for an ingrate

For a sorry hypocrite who can only fork over a fatal fate

When we fall in love, we search for a superb union, fun

Peace, respect, affection, compatibility, and comprehension.
