Double Bind

Don’t talk about apples with apples in your mouth. If I don’t know your fruit yet don’t put it in my ear. You have so many friends who because they want to tell you that they love you, so maybe I better shut up. If my love were true you would not be thirsty. Don’t wait until you find love in a cup, and drink it. I can’t bring a promise to you on a leaf, or thread an opposition through a ring.
