The Poetry Bar

How do I unlove you?

How do I unlove you?
I should find a way
To break the cycle of pain

How do I unlove you?
To free my mind of doubts
To take other shots

How do I unlove you?
Or should I?

Coelho said,
“When looking for peace,
don’t look for love.”

I guess I am just tired
of fighting for love
Maybe it is time to surrender to it
For a change.

Even the world itself has to rest
It can only take two wars in a century.

Esmeralda Balita is a living paradox.
