i should have known...
by Maida Riva Estoque Palapos
i always thought i'd never fall in love again
but if i fall, i would never be hurt
i swore and i promised...but here i am...
i thought i knew how to handle myself
i thought i knew what to do
i thought love would be easy for me
just because of what i have gone through
i laugh at all those people who cry for love
i give them advice
i tell them to stop loving
i never stopped talking
but when the time came for me
to give advice to myself
i can't even say anything
i guess love is like that
you will always end up getting hurt
but how come you never stop loving?
maybe it's because before you were hurt
it feels so great
somehow, you forget the rules
and just get on with it
and when you're hurting, you cry
but even with all the pain, you'll know
love is worth all the hurt
and if you would be given that chance
to do things all over again
you'll know that even if you are aware of the hurt
you would still love
now here i am...i swore and i promised.
but I never did listen to myself.
