Stupid Love
Haley Resnick

Love is stupid. 

Love is for the weak. 

The ones who feel the need to be accepted by others. 

Love at first sight.


Does that not sound ridiculous.

Those who are in love make me laugh.

They are accepting endless misery.


Hold on. 

What’s that? He likes my poem? 

Did he just quote Shakespeare? 

Did he just call me beautiful? 


Love is the best thing that can ever happen.

Those who doubt it just don’t know.
