I did not want to fall in love with you

100 words for July


I did not want to fall in love with you
At most pursued a quick short-lived affair
Wronged have I been before and sure anew
I'd rather sidestep agonizing care

But somehow destined I for you did fall
It's time unfeelingly to toy with me
Treat me compassionlessly after all
Because it's happened so consistently

I say all this as prelude to much pain
That surely will beleaguer in the end
Continued love does always maim again
My heart so wound around will break not bend

All certainly must happen as I say
Still horses wild could not drag me away
