Until
we met again, I knew I wasn’t in love with you

Now
I'm not sure if I am not in love with you.

And
I know this unsureness exists

Only
because I know you aren’t.

Again
I lie to myself.

Always
I'm an expert at pretending.

There appears a misleading complexity in the lines, when you first read it. And like all you write- I read it again and discover how beautiful those lines are. Gr8t!

Prince of your heart seems to be bothering you ....I heard this line somewhere that the Pleasure of love lasts but a moment, Pain of love lasts a lifetime.

So you are lying to us that you can lie very well to yourself. I'm just kidding here. Not a good thing to lie to yourself though.

And whats this about the lines being very complicated and having to read them again?
The meaning is apparent in one read.

And I totally agree love is bullshit.

You managed to convey a negativity about positive things. Usage of it makes the reader go back and read again!! Well, written.

Dhanush: Back to romance? It always existed!

OAC: :)

Aks: Again and again, it needn't always be about me honey!

Shinu: Positive, negative- always things to play around with! :)
