They say love can conquer any battle
Strong as fire,
Clear as ice,
Nothing can destroy it so easily.
Because true love holds on despite conflict,
Despite any belief in its hopelessness.
But I don't believe in love.
Not when the best example
Has fallen apart right in front of me.
When the fight becomes too much,
When the fire spreads too far,
There's nothing you can do.
When harsh reality decides to show up at your door,
Demanding its entrance.
And you have no choice but to give in
It's beyond our control.
It's beyond understanding.
So 'love' is only temporary
Only there until the flame burns out,
And then it's dead.
