Poem -

strawberries & wine

strawberries & wine

I don’t like raw strawberries (which is weird)
I don’t know how to kiss a man with a beard
 
I don’t like waking up in the morning
I don’t know how to sleep next to a person snoring
 
I don’t like my neighbour, Jim
I don’t know why she likes him
 
I don’t like this untameable curl
I don’t know how to talk to a crying girl
 
I don’t like any kind of salad except for potato
I don’t know why “Love is a serious mental disease,” said Plato
 
I don’t like most people (I just don’t)
I don’t know how to talk to you (So I won’t)
 
I don’t like the man I’m marrying (I love him)
I don’t know if we should go to America on a whim
 
I don’t like saying goodbye
I don’t know how to talk to your guy
 
I don’t like red…no, I don’t like wine
I don’t know why I should share what is mine

Taeyeon's "I got love" instrumental because I couldn't get that beat out of my head, and it inspired the final line/ending for this poem! (which I've been sitting on for weeks with no idea how to conclude...X)
