Differences in Love
by Angela  Savoie

OUR DIFFERENCES MAKE US WHO WE ARE,
WE BOTH SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY.
BUT THERE IS ONE THING WE BOTH AGREE ON.
IT'S OUR LOVE FOR EACH OTHER.
ONCE AGAIN, MY LOVE FOR HIM IS, OR
COULD BE, A DIFFERENT KIND OF LOVE
THAN HE HAS FOR ME.

LOVE HAS TURNED ME INTO A DIFFERENT PERSON
DIFFERENT BY:  I HAVE FEELINGS FOR SOMEONE 
I'VE NEVER HAD BEFORE, I DON'T KNOW HOW 
TO ACT... BUT HOW SHOULD I ACT?????

IF I ACT NOT CARING, HE WILL
CHEAT AND LIE TO ME LIKE THE REST
IF I AM OVERPROTECTIVE, HE WILL THINK
I AM POSSESSED AND OBSESSED
IF I AM TOO JEALOUS, HE WILL THINK
THAT I DON'T TRUST HIM.

HE KNOWS I AM JEALOUS
AND I KNOW HE HAS HAD IT WITH ME
WHY CAN'T LOVE BE SIMPLER
EVEN THE GAME OF CHESS IS EASIER 
TO PLAY THAN LOVE

IF I LOSE THE GAME OF LOVE WITH HIM, 
IT WOULD BE HARDER THAN LOSING A GAME OF CHESS
IN CHESS, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS 
SET UP YOUR PIECES AGAIN, AND TRY TO REMEMBER
WHAT YOU DID WRONG AND FIGURE OUT 
SOME STRATEGIES

IN LOVE YOU NEED STRATEGIES, AND YOU HAVE
TO REMEMBER WHAT WENT WRONG
BUT YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO WALK AROUND WITH 
A LONG FACE AND A BROKEN HEART 
IF YOU LOSE A GAME OF CHESS
YOU CAN'T PICK YOUR PIECES UP AS QUICKLY
AND RESET A GAME OF LOVE

I SAY LOVE IS A GAME 
BECAUSE "GOD"
MADE IT HIS GAME
THE GAME STARTED WITH ADAM AND EVE
THEY WERE PUT HERE TO MULTIPLY
NOT TO START A GAME OF LOVE, WE DON'T KNOW 
WHAT HAPPENED, WE DON'T KNOW IF THEY ACTUALLY
FELL IN LOVE, BUT THEY MUST HAVE STARTED 
A CIVILIZATION

"GOD" IS EITHER PLAYING A SICK JOKE
(BY THE ADAM AND EVE THEORY, "WE ARE ALL RELATED")
OR IS EITHER DOING AN EXPERIMENT
I DON'T FEEL THE SAME WAY 
FOR MY PARENTS THAT I DO FOR HIM

SO THE THEORY IS EITHER WRONG 
OR I FELL FOR HIS SICK JOKE.  I HEARD IN HEAVEN
WE WON'T BE WITH A HUSBAND OR WIFE,
THERE IS NO SUCH THING 
HE IS JUST USING US, "FOR WHAT, I DON'T KNOW"

THERE WOULD BE LESS PROBLEMS AND MORE TIME TO 
LOVE, IF THERE WERE NO DIFFERENCES BETWEEN US
BUT THAT MAKES US WHO WE ARE.
