The Gamble of Love

'Gamble of Love' centers around a bitter love experience in which one partner loved while the other did not.


Wholeheartedly I loved,
Dejectedly I was treated.
All that I could; I sacrificed,
But none got you enticed.

Despite your austerity,
I made you a priority;
In my world; you lived a celebrity,
While in yours; I lived in obscurity.

Love indeed is a gamble,
My experience is an example;
Although I was humble,
It ended in shambles.

Unconditionally I loved,
But never was I loved.
Now I have learnt a lesson,
Never to love any person.
