original poems by john allen

How do I get off?

Love doesn't come with a warranty.
No safety manual or instructions.
Just hang on and hope.
Hope you don't slip.

Love is like a rollercoaster -
constant whips and turns,
heart-pulsing drops,
sudden jerks.

Our ride was so intense
you were thrown off.
Now, I ride alone.
How do i get off?
