Love is like a temporary tattoo,
the label says it lasts seven days,
the fifth day passes and soon it looks
same as it did on the first.
You think it’ll last longer,
but the next day it begins to fade.
The seventh day is near
and the tattoo is nearly gone.
May be you get lucky
and it survives an extra day,
but inevitably, it will completely fade.
You maybe sad because it’s gone,
but if you really liked it
you might get another.
Of course, in due time, temporary keeps its promise,
there’s always an another option,
a permanent tattoo.
