Love on the rebound, beware what you do
That which feels perfect sometimes wont ring true
Hurting and vunerable, heart full of pain
Some take advantage for own personal gain
Have I been stupid, or praps just naive?
Wanted some comfort, to soothe while I grieve
Jumped from the frying pan into the fire
Driven by need to feel love and desire
Those on the rebound dont listen to head
Ignore gut feelings to fill lonely bed
Dont stop to listen when they are in need
This is a lesson ive learned, please take heed!
Best to have no-one than more hurt and pain
Stuck in a cycle that comes round again
Take your time choosing a partner for you
Leave the familiar and find something new
Build up some trust and hear your inner soul
You may be lucky and fulfill your goal
Even if not, you are best off alone
Than sharing a lifetime in unhappy home.
Poem dedicated to a couple of exes!
