Bitter Side of Love

I am a Food scientist, who enjoy reading and writing articles and poetry.

The pleasure of love lasts but a moment . Pain of love last a lifetime - Bette Davis

She was a beautiful butterfly floating by

I was enchanted by her beauty


Astonished, when the wind of fate

blew her to my blossom


In a twinkle of an eye we kissed

even before our love began


She was my goddess

I was her slave never to be redeemed.


Love makes our world a beautiful place

Love makes our world a beautiful place

Broken heart, soul and body

Broken heart, soul and body

She made me swore allegiance

Forsaking everything and clinging to her


When I thought I had her to myself

Like the bees crave for nectar

she went seeking for pleasures

From other men


Thorns pierced my hand

While I held onto roses

To appease her cravings


Yet she cuddled them in her arms

Which was my fottress.


The pain love puts us through

The pain love puts us through

Like a small child pleading to his father,

the harder I tried the farther she sailed away


The dew, sunrise and sunset

Soiled my reputation

As I stayed all night at the shore

Waiting for her return.


"My once crystal heart is an

empty palace

now flooded with loneliness."-Gani Isaac


She left me with a bleeding heart

no one can cure

And scare that will torment me

Forever...
