Into my life, why did you enter?
You caused turbulence, instead of being a mentor!
I became a slave to my emotion,
And throughout, you made me harbour this notion!
You showed me a love castle,
But, all along, it remained to me, a puzzle!
In love, my faith, you entrenched,
And, in despair, my love, you drenched!
You showed me the gateway to Paradise,
But, I realized it was hell, in Heaven’s guise!
I sunk deeper into the hell,
The more I extricated, the forceful I fell!
Love, I realized, was no more a blessing,
Any moment, it can decimate you, with its sting!
