My dreams of love, you shattered,
My broken heart, you battered!
You took me for a love ride,
While my feelings for you, I couldn’t hide!
You perched me atop love’s Giant Wheel,
And pulled me down, before I could say, how I feel!
You showed me a state of love ecstasy,
When I desired it, you said, it is just a ‘fantasy!’
My feelings of heart alternated, between love and despair,
You spurned my love, and put it beyond repair!
I thought, your love, would resuscitate me from death,
But, for the umpteenth time, love again stifled my breath!
Can love ever bestow joy? I wonder!
If it can’t, then love is god’s biggest blunder!
