be your own doctor
you little love hypochondriac
dare to diagnose yourself
with hopeless romanticism
and prescribe falling love
as your treatment method-
instead, choose the homeopathic route
and wait until love finds you
that's the only way it's real
or true anymore anyways
you go searching and come home
empty-handed every time

very memorable. and mesmerizing as metal4life said. i love how the first 4 or so lines. when you say to diagnose yourself. love is such a complicated emotion. and your poem demonstrates it perfectly. i love that ending.
