Love is a Bully (Poetry)

Artwork by: Michael Cheval

Love is a bully
She feeds on weak susceptible souls
She lacks operating optics so she kills at random
Infesting minds and silencing the voices of intellect
Triggering unforeseen patience
Robbing her victims of green faces

Love is a bully
Mercy is crossed out in her dictionary
Bringing emotions to the surface that lied dormant for years
The faceless villain invades your face with tears
Many have attempted to convict her of her crimes
She seems to only grow deadlier with time

One problem…
Love is a bully you can’t report to an authority
She has no physical identity
And you can’t warn future victims of her venomous hand
If they’ve never been attacked then they wouldn’t understand

-Jon Chambers
