BEWARE

Beware the wiles of romance, for she is a thief.
She comes upon you in the night and promises you happiness.
She woos you with tales of unending joy.
Beware the wiles of romance, for she is a thief.
She builds you up, convinced that you will never fall.
Then steals your world out from under you.

Beware the treachery of love, for love is a liar.
She gladdens your heart and causes you to see bright flowers.
She intoxicates you with heady anticipations.
Beware the treachery of love, for love is a liar.
She promises you eternity, filled with peace and gladness.
Then stabs you through the heart.

Beware the veil of caution, for she is a trickster.
She whispers sweetly in your ear and tells you all is well.
She lulls you into a feeling of confidence.
Beware the veil of caution, for she is a trickster.
She conspires with her sisters, and blinds you to truth.
Then leads you happily to your doom.
