EMOTIONAL CONDOM By Inufin Ayomide D’great

Written by Editor

Let’s play around in this frivolous game of circle,
A game of war that most players die in battle,
Why not cease to be a fool for love; why be a love’s fool?
It’s a barricade, break barrier; for this is how to pass the bar without a Law school.

What is not shown is unknown,
Certainly a strength, an uncertainty to the unknown,
Why not protect You from falling again?
Since everytime You fall, You fall in pain.

When people fall, they fall apart;
Cause true feelings is like Napoleon that rips the bone apart.
A visible emotion is a detriment,
A fatal fragment in the heart of a ligament.

Protection is self-defense,
A shining armor to mitigate the painful pretence,
The guardian angel that will guide your wings from falling,
A phony hell that ceased heaven from calling.

Bind your mind, unbind the blind, be free.
It’s true love is blind, most lovers don’t see,
Your heart is your earth; don’t let Them quake it…
Dearly beloved! Cover your heart before They break it…
