When Love makes you a Cat

You are a good looking man. And your kind often get whatever they want with perseverance.

It really irked me. It really bothered me. Mostly because it’s true but it felt insensitive. Do you understand that I have worked hard for everything that I have and what feels like everything to me, has slipped out of grasp, 4 times.

Hearts are more precious than gold.

Me: hearts are more priceless but gold is more valuable.

I don’t want to be loved.

That is the truth. I don’t want to find a woman. I don’t want a wife. I don’t want commitment. I do Not because I am scared of being left. Being discarded. Being not enough. Being seen and considered short of the mark. Being treated like sin.

No one that knows me truly, will stay.

It’s a lie, Dolapo.

Love does not survive in conditions where mosquitos thrive.
