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.
