Dogs 2

Dogs 2

He’s young and lost
still learning how to love
so he thinks
maybe its easier
to get a dog.

The emotional crutch
of young men
too broken to know
how to love others.

The one thing
that’ll love you back
without asking for
anything in return
because he’s sure
that’s what love is
giving nothing
and getting everything.
If only his girlfriend
could understand that.

Like a bandaid
on a gunshot wound
he thinks a puppy will fix him
because he doesn’t know
how bad he’s hurt
how the only person
who can save him
is himself.
