The Cynic of Love

By PoeticMeditations

The phrase, “All you need is love,” is nothing but a lie;
Without air, food or water, we would all simply die.
It’s a chemical response to something that we like.
Attractive faces cause our brain’s dopamine to spike.
Romance is the word used in place of copulation;
A biological urge to increase the population.

It’s money, not love, that really makes the world go ’round.
Investing in stocks and bonds is financially sound.
Interest in the principle is what you can obtain.
Love’s investment results in nothing but grief and pain;
A mere commodity to make money anyway.
Ask any0ne who’s gotten married how much they had to pay.

For those who can’t find love, poor beggars can’t be choosers.
In the game of love, we all end up being losers.
The one that got away? It’s probably for the best.
Plenty of fish in the sea that look like all the rest.
Love is not the end-all/be-all that it seems to be.
I prefer the romance and the dream of the wide, open sea.
